Want to Visit Long Creek Herbs?

Here are details about Visiting Long Creek Herb Farm in 2018


We grow unusual herbs and vegetables and are often considered a destination for serious gardeners. We are open only by advance reservation. We don’t sell seeds or plants – you can find our recommendations for those by clicking on our “Looking for Plants?” button elsewhere on our website.

We gladly share our gardening expertise and experience with those who are interested in herbs and gardening. Those who are familiar with Jim Long’s magazine articles and books know we are passionate about gardening, herbs, cooking, and organics.

The garden and Herb Shop are just only a portion of our over-all business. We retail and wholesale our products and books nationwide through our website and through a variety of wholesale outlets. The growing season is usually filled with writing projects, garden apprentices, pre-scheduled events and our own lecture trips away. With that in mind, here are details about visiting.

After 30 years of hosting our annual Open House days, we likely will be taking a break this year, but may add something in its place later.

We will be offering several days during the season when the general public can call to pre-arrange visits to the gardens and shop. Average visits, including the walking tour and time to visit, ask questions, take photos and browse in the shop, with light refreshments, lasts about 2 hours. We take an advance reservation fee of $25 (per carload of folks, up to 6 people) by credit card. Call at least 2 weeks, or more, in advance. The person making the reservation can spend the $25 in the shop after the tour. For larger groups and special tours, call for pricing and tour options.

CALL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE if you intend to visit this season; we expect the limited number of appointment times available to fill up fast. If you schedule a visit with a group fewer than six, your appointment time may be shared with other visitors.

417-779-5450 Phones answered Monday-Friday 8 AM – 5 PM, Central Standard Time.

We’re located between Blue Eye, Missouri, on the Missouri/Arkansas border, and Eureka Springs, Arkansas. With your reservation confirmation, we will send you a map and directions and it is helpful to have your email address in order to send the map. (You will definitely need the map to find us). We don’t accept drop-in visitors to the garden, sorry.
