Jekka's is truly a family business, Hannah and Alistair have joined Mac and Jekka so securing the long-term future. Hannah brings her skills as an illustrator and printmaker and Alistair brings his knowledge of the environment and his passion for food.
The history of Jekka’s starts back in 1984 in the back garden of our home in Filton, Bristol, UK. A passion that outgrew the garden and resulted in the move to Alveston in 1987, at which time the farm was growing just 26 varieties of herbs; this has now increased to over 400 varieties. Over the last three decades Jekka’s has evolved from supplying garden centres to an online mail order business and from 2013, when we created Jekka's Herbetum and school offering master classes and tours.
For those that have followed us over the past 30 years may have noticed that our original Letraset logo and name has changed from "Jekka’s Herb Farm" to simply "Jekka’s". This is to reflect the diversity of products and facilities now available at Jekka’s. Please see our timeline to see the evolution of the farm since 1984.
Jekka’s is continually growing with the development of new master classes, a supper club series and a cafe offering a seasonal herb-based menu.
We are also delighted to launch a new range of Illustrated Products designed exclusively for Jekka's by Hannah McVicar.
Whether you are starting out, an avid chef, a plant enthusiast or garden designer our collection is likely to have something to inspire you. We are growing a virtual Herbetum called Jekkapedia enabling you to browse and learn at your leisure. We hope you will find it both informative and useful. We look forward to showing you around Jekka's Herbetum at the Farm.Explore
