Lovelight is a medicinal and culinary herb farm, teaching center and producer of nourishing herb and food products. We tend and nurture the plants we grow with love and positivity. With the gifts of sunshine and rain, they flourish and transform into magical, joyous and healthy offerings. We offer herb starts and seeds for your garden, freshly harvested and dried herbs, and an endless array of handcrafted herb infused oils, vinegar and honeys. Located 10 miles West of Eugene, in Veneta, Oregon, all plants at Lovelight Herb Farm are naturally grown without the use of chemicals, or they are ethically harvested from the wild. We are stewards of this land, surrounded by abundant forests and mountain ranges. We believe Hippocrates knew the answer: “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.”
Our goal is to provide chemical-free and US grown medicinal herbs to everyone from big companies to you at home making remedies for those you love, and to help you learn how you can take charge of your own health care using herbs and foods.
We sell locally, we can also ship directly to you, or you might arrange to come visit Lovelight Herb Farm in person. Please call us in advance to arrange a visit, email or call us to place orders, or just come by the markets, say hello and choose from our daily selections. You might also consider joining us for a classroom opportunity to learn how we grow, harvest and prepare herbal products and foods, and how you can take charge of your own health care using herbs and foods. Please email, phone or come by the market to get a current listing of learning opportunities.
Lovelight Herb Farm was founded in 2013 by Nicki and John Neilson. They have been farming together since 2008 as MoonTime Farms in Veneta, OR.
Nicki has been studying herbs since her move to Alaska in 1993 and received her diploma from Dominion Herbal College in Vancouver, BC in 2003. She is an Organic Farmer, Herbalist and Teacher.
John is a Design Production Engineer and an Organic Farmer. He manages the many facilities and equipment on the farm.
We also believe there is a need to begin cultivation of rare and endangered medicinal plants. We feel we must preserve those species that give so much to us. We encourage others with the plant-nurturing passion to visit United Plant Savers and plant something from the At Risk List in your backyard ~ for all our futures.
We are proud members of these organizations:
