On the herb farm Carlsthal there are about 200 varieties of herbs to admire, taste and buy throughout the year. The trained gardener and passionate herbalist Jeanette Nadebor invites interested guests to her herb farm for herb walks, workshops, country cooking and summer concerts. The herb farm is surrounded by a natural end moraine landscape of the Trebel valley.
An old barn is surrounded by beautiful and useful things. Here in the wild nature-related kitchen garden grow herbs, tea plants, vegetables, native woody plants and fruit trees of old varieties in mulch cultivation. The visitor has an unobstructed view of the terminal moraine landscape of the Trebel valley, into which the herb farm flows. In the farm store you can buy teas, fresh and dried kitchen and medicinal herbs, honey from our own bees and products from a small farm pottery. From March to September, the café with fresh country cuisine is open every Saturday from 2 to 6 pm: Fresh traditional dishes with old and rare vegetables, herbs and flowers grown on the farm. Ingredients, such as meat and fish, mainly from organic sources and species-appropriate animal husbandry. Garden buffet and skillet dishes, soups and salads, cakes and coffee covers - let us surprise you!
