Each day's menu is finalized only hours before the meal to best represent the flavors of land and sea.

The Herbfarm Garden

For much of the year, The Herbfarm's own kitchen gardens and nearby farm supply the restaurant with an ever changing harvest of common and unusual produce.

Meet Kevin Hickenbottom, The Herbfarm's Head Gardener

Kevin Hickenbottom is in charge of The Herbfarm's farm, which is located about a mile south of the restaurant. Kevin is responsible for growing year-round crops that are both typical (and sometimes atypical) of the plants that naturally grow in this region.

With a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Studies from Yale University--and previous farm work in Vermont, California, the San Juan Islands, as well as research work for UC Davis in Baja, Mexico--, Kevin comes with a keen understanding of the fundamental relationships between humans and the eco-system. He uses only organic methods at our farm. Kevin is well-versed not only in using tractors and hand tillage, but is also knowledgeable about real "horse power".
