Red Wagon Herbs
During the summer, fall, and winter, Red Wagon grows culinary herbs that are sold to stores, distributors, and restaurants. Herbs are the easiest way to add flavor in the kitchen and we strive to provide our customers with herbs ten months out of the year by growing herbs in the ground, in a heated greenhouse, and in an unheated Haygrove tunnel.
The true beginnings of Red Wagon Herbs arose when Julie was just fourteen years old, chopping and prepping herbs in the kitchen of her father's restaurant, Gerard's. Julie's love for herbs came to fruition when, at twenty years old, she grew an herb garden for the restaurant. Later, as a vegetable farmer at the Intervale, Julie always grew herbs and herb plants alongside her veggies. By 2005, Red Wagon Plants came to life as a wholesale and retail nursery focusing on edible plants for the kitchen garden and growing culinary herbs took a back seat for several years. In 2013, Julie began the process of growing Red Wagon Plants' sister business, Red Wagon Herbs. Since then, it has been a great way to extend our season, has provided employment for Team Red Wagon members for many more months, and keeps all our hands in the dirt a little more. Julie and her crew grow the herbs in 2 locations: at the Hinesburg greenhousesand at the beautiful Unity Farm in Charlotte, VT.

Don't let mint's delicate and graceful aroma fool you. It is a garden thug.
