Quality Herb Plants for the Local Gardener

All of our plants are locally produced on our four-acre farm.

Red Barn Herb Farm is a small, family owned business that produces quality herb plants for local gardeners. We are located in Republic, Missouri, fifteen miles west of Springfield.  We primarily sell our products at local farmers' markets and regional festivals. 

Barb Emge's passion for herbs began over 35 years ago when she planted a few seeds outside her kitchen door.  Today her collection includes all of the traditional culinary herbs, as well as many heirloom, ethnic and unusual varieties. She also has the largest variety of scented geraniums in Missouri.
