The Sunflower Cottage is an herb farm, garden center, and tea room which sits on 40 acres and each year plays host to the Virginia Herb Festival. The unique tea room serves high tea by appointment, with finger sandwiches, canapes, fruits, salads, pastries, cookies and scones. The cottage also offers workshops on gardening, tea etiquette, and herbs.
Our mission is to promote the agrarian lifestyle through our garden center products, demonstration gardens, working gardens, lunch-and-learn by appointment, and workshop series.
Garden clubs and other organizations are welcome for tea and a program. Billie is also available to give programs at your location.
