Want to Visit Long Creek Herbs?

Here are details about Visiting Long Creek Herb Farm in 2020


Our gardens at Long Creek Herb Farm and our recipes, have been featured in Southern Living (twice), Gourmet, Better Homes & Gardens Garden, Deck & Landscape, a U.S. News & World Report Travel Video and P. Allen Smith Gardens and many others.

We annually grow a wide selection of unusual herbs and vegetables and are therefore primarily a destination for serious gardeners. We are open only by advance reservation. We do not sell seeds or plants – you can find our recommendations for those by clicking on the “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 over the past 30 years as well as the many books he has written, know we are passionate about gardening, herbs, cooking, and organics.

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

For one carload of folks – up to 5 people, the advance reservation fee is $25. On the day of the tour, the person who made the reservation can spend that $25 in our Herb Shop. Tours average 1 1/2 to 2 hours and include light herbal refreshments after the garden walk.

For the safety of visitors, as well as ourselves, we have cancelled our 32nd annual open house this year.

CALL SOON to reserve a date (417-779-5450, Mon-Fri, central time zone ) if you would like to visit us 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 5, your appointment time may be shared with other visitors.

We’re located between Blue Eye, Missouri 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.

    We don’t accept drop-in visitors to the garden, sorry.
