Topmost Herb Farm, a grower of medicinal and culinary herbs, located in Coventry, Connecticut, is owned and operated by Carole Miller. Herbs are grown without pesticides or commercial fertilizers. The plants owe their robust health and vigor to organic potting mix, seaweed and kelp mixtures, herbal plant teas for insect and disease control, and additions of farm generated compost. They are available in 3 inch or quart pots during the growing season from May through September.

Topmost is closed for the season and will reopen in Mid-April 2014 for plant sales at the greenhouse on Thursday, Friday and Saturdays.

HERBS & MORE

We do not ship plants, however we welcome your inquiries for contract growing. Stop at the farm during greenhouse hours and see many of the herbs planted in our display gardens. Please refer to our growing list for this year’s plant offerings. The list is not necessarily all-inclusive, as items are often added as the season progresses and availability naturally depends on good seed germination and growing conditions. Our garlic is ready in early August and our Ailsa Craig sweet onions shortly thereafter.

HEIRLOOM TOMATOES

This year we are pleased to offer 35 varieties of heirlooms tomato plants. Sometime in August, look for ripe tomatoes at the Topmost booth at the Coventry Farmers' Market. Heirlooms are old-timers from many countries whose seeds have been preserved for generations and they are well-respected for their marvelous deep flavor. Colors range from pink to purple and yellow, sometimes with striping or mottling. Often the shoulders have brown markings, and the shapes run the gamut from oblong through flattened, pointy and downright lumpy. Started early from seed, they are transplanted twice and are large plants, ready to go in the ground in early June. Consult the tomato plant list and reserve your plants early.

LECTURES & SPECIAL EVENTS

Contact the farm if you would like a speaker for your organization. Subjects include herbal lore and history, organic growing techniques, growing and using organic culinary herbs and growing herbs for tea. Demonstrations include preparing herbal vinegars, herbal appetizers, and growing basil and making pesto. During the warm months we can accommodate groups for garden tours and a lecture at the farm.
