The 2020 Jekka's HerbFest has been postponed to 2021 due to Coronavirus. We had a fabulous programme planned and it would have been an event to remember. We are humbled by the response we had to what would have been our first ever Jekka's HerbFest.
We hope to run Jekka's HerbFest in 2021; please pencil in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th July into your diary. More details will be released next year.
In the meantime, we look forward to welcoming you to the herb farm for one of Jekka's Open Days or our new Jekka's Herb Hours. We are making bookable time slots using Jekka's Coupons for our Open Days and Herb Hours to control numbers and enable social distancing to be maintained. Alternatively, you can organise a Farm Collection to pick up herbs from the farm gate.
