The Historic Sinking Springs Herb Farm & Retreat is set on 130 beautiful rural acres in Elkton, Maryland. Come explore the gardens and hear the history of an 18th-century provincial plantation house. See the ancient sycamore tree which sprouted in 1578. As part of the 2 1/2 hour program, sit down to an herbalicious gourmet delight – a luncheon of fresh, unprocessed food prepared with herbs and served in the original house. Or if you prefer, we also offer a program, “Herbs of the Bible” with a Labyrinth Serenity Walk. Afterward, if you wish, browse the gift shop, which offers herbs and dried flower creations. It’s a perfect secluded getaway – great for honeymooners of all ages! We also offer a private cottage garden for intimate picnics or enjoy a cozy warm fire (also electric heat) to snuggle by. Then relax & enjoy a leisurely breakfast (your choice) surrounded by the beauty of Sinking Springs.
