Phytofarm is a medicinal plant farm of renowned herbalist and naturopath Valmai Becker, dedicated to the growing and practical use of herbal medicine. This is where healing plants, kitchen pharmacy meet and medicine making begins.
Whether if you are from the area or travelling through looking for things to do: if you are interested in a healthy lifestyle when it comes to your garden, your nutrition or medicine cabinet – visit Phytofarm and its breath-taking location and views in all seasons!
One-hour garden tours (including tea blending), available October – July, cover the seasonal changes as well as a variety of medicinal plants. Take home inspiring insights for your own garden and cuisine! Pre-bookings are best but casual visitors are welcome.
Enjoy the beautiful Okuti Valley, with our purpose-built herb and drying sheds that are a light and airy for spring and summer workshops and warm and cosy environment for autumn and winter workshops. Through herbal medicine workshops you can learn herbal medicine with the seasons, correct plant identification of six plants for each season, the suitable growing conditions and medicinal action for each plant profiled, and the variety of products that can be made. Herbal Medicine is for healing, health and well being and has long been considered the medicine of the people.
