Sinking Spring Herb Farm

Sinking Spring Herb Farm in Elkton, MD is a 44 year old business run by Ann Stubbs.   This 130 acre herb farm features restful herb gardens, a cottage bed and breakfast and is a venue for farm weddings. 72 year old Ann greeted us with a branch of sweet annie as we stepped off the bus.  We were then instructed on how to make that into a wreath.  Later we were able to add dried flowers and raffia bows to the wreath. 

We were there for an evening dinner on the last day of our bus trip.  The evening lighting enhanced the loveliness of the herb gardens. We loved all the arch ways and gazebos all in white for those special wedding photos and moments.

The large barn was her gift shop, dried flower studio and the upstairs was an indoor wedding venue.

What a lovely herb farm! There used to be one here in Newnan years ago, and I loved visiting the owner to see what she was up to -- wreaths, lavender wands, etc. Susanna's wreath is so pretty, too!
