The Cottage Herbery based in the Teme Valley at the border of Worcestershire and Shropshire is a small family run nursery growing quality herbs as well as aromatic and scented foliage pants.
Kim and Rob Hurst first established the business in 1976. From the very beginning, every plant has been grown naturally and peat-free. This ethos stems from the belief that if you are producing a plant for natural flavouring, healing and fragrance, then that plant should be produced naturally. In addition to the herbs, aromatic and scented foliage plants there has been a gradual increase in the selection of interesting hardy perennials and the more unusual edibles.
The Cottage Herbery is an award-winning nursery having won numerous awards over its 40+ years of growing including Chelsea Gold Medals, on more than one occasion.

For more than 30 years we have been growing organic herbs on our Herefordshire farm. Using these herbs, we have developed a range of skincare products and tinctures that we are truly proud to sell. We oversee the whole process from the farm; we pick the herbs, create, bottle and label the products by ourselves and we do it all by hand in small batches.
Making our products the right way is important to us. That’s why we’re proud to be certified an Ethical Company, organic with Soil Association and Cruelty Free with PETA. Many of our products are registered with the Vegan Society and we avoid plastic in our packaging. When you use a Herbfarmacy product you share in our philosophy. That we use the very best ingredients, that plants and wildlife have been treated with respect and that the products you use are individually made with care.
We are a family owned and run business based in the flat Lincolnshire Fens. Over 200 varieties of herbs and plants grown by my family locally.
