Enjoy a Delicious Day in the Garden!
 Our nursery and display gardens are tucked away in the mountains just a short drive from Corvallis, Oregon on Highway 34. The drive alone is worth the trip, taking you past Mary’s Peak, the highest point in the Coast Range Mountains of Oregon.

We will start with a stroll through our display gardens and discuss the herbs we see as well as the ones you will have the pleasure of experiencing with your herbal luncheon. The luncheon is peaceful and relaxing as you dine outdoors under the fir trees and absorb all the ambiance nature has to offer, always aware of the surrounding beautiful coast range mountains and the hypnotizing sound of our year round stream that borders this special place. Our nursery offers hundreds of herb and flower starts and fun and unique herbal goodies in our craftshop and will be open after finishing lunch.
Our menu changes with what's in season.
Example menu:
~ Mixed locally grown salad greens with edible flowers
 Served with three fresh dressing choices.
~ Herb Infused Tea and Lemonade
~Three Choices of Homemade Herbal Breads
Served with an Array of Herb Butters and Spreads
~ Apricot Glazed Chicken Breast with Fines Herbes, drizzled with Aged Cherrywood Balsamic Vinegar
 Served with Home Grown Dilly Cucumbers 
and Savory Quinoa with Herbs and Fruit
~ Lavender-Laced Cheesecake
We offer seasonal, local vegetables throughout the summer - many of which we grow ourselves! The tour and luncheons start at 11 and finish around 2:30. In order that we can give everyone plenty of attention we have to restrict the group size to 24 for our plated meals. Larger groups will be served a buffet style meal. Interested individuals or small groups may combine with others to meet the required minimum number. We host tours and luncheons on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from June to mid-August.
