O’Toole’s Herb Farm is a certified herb grower located on the outskirts of the small, sleepy town of Madison, in the center of North Florida. O’Toole’s, open since 1990, was created by Jim and Betty (‘B’) O’Toole—a dream come true. A haven for their customers, the Farm conveys a sense of beauty and peace that is searched for in today’s hectic world. The farm is situated in the middle of a section of family farm owned by ‘B’s family since the early 1840′s. Everyone enjoys a lazy stroll around the gardens, through the greenhouses or visiting the 2 old cracker houses converted into retail shops.
‘The Patch’, the main garden, is a beautiful re-charger of the senses and a lovely spot for special occasions. Many of the workshops or seminars that take place at the farm during the spring and fall will take place in ‘The Patch’. The secret Garden is somewhat enclosed and features a water garden. It is a lovely, quiet place to pause and reflect. The Butterfly-Hummingbird Garden is alive with ‘Flying Flowers’ in the spring, summer and fall.
Though organic farming methods, ‘B’ is providing stewardship with the land by growing a quality product, replenishing and maintaining the soil’s fertility while assisting nature’s balance. No synthetic pesticides or chemical fertilizers are used. O’Toole’s Herb Farm has been certified organic since 1991.
