These herbal products, which are well known for their wonderful fragrance and therapeutic benefits, provide the foundation for the wide range of products produced and sold at the farm.
Alongside the abovementioned products, the farm offers its own smooth blend of fresh extra virgin olive oil, delicious table olives and tapenades and some unusual and delicious fruit preserves. The farm also has a growing fan base for its unique herbal cordials !
