Welcome to Summerfield Herb Farm in Afton, Tennessee!


We are a small farm family in the East Tennessee mountains. We are striving to become more self sufficient by learning skills such as: growing food, beekeeping, sewing, building furniture, and herbal medicine making.  We are so thankful to have lots of wonderful mentors helping us on our journey.  The goal is to make our living from the farm, and we will share our triumphs and lessons learned, here on our website.  We are betting there are lots of folks out there with the same ideas about simple living!  We hope to hear from you!  ~Heather, Dale and the kids

Currently we have one greenhouse and one hoop house (high tunnel). We are in the process of adding “native plant nursery” to our repertoire and should be ready to sell young trees and shrubs come spring 2018. We will still have our lineup of herbs, perennials, flowers, tomato, and pepper starts as usual. Our 2018 plant list will be available soon.  If you have a special plant request, we would love to hear from you!

We never use chemical herbicides or pesticides on our farm.  You can be assured that the plants you take home from our farm are safe for you and your pollinators! 

Our seeds and plant starts are sourced from reputable, inspected producers. We never dig native plants from the wild, because so many species are endangered.
