Welcome to the Blue Owl!

Blue Owl Garden Emporium herb farm offers locally and sustainably grown culinary herbs, edible flowers, herbal seasoning blends and teas, and a variety of other herbal concoctions. With about 200 dried herbs available during the winter and as many as 175 fresh ones during the summer, it's likely we can fill your every culinary herb need. All grown in Licking Co. Ohio without synthetic pesticides or artificial fertilizers.

We also offer culinary mushrooms, grow-your-own mushroom logs, native fruits, and various other forest edibles in season from our forest farm, Blue Owl Hollow. Our mushroom selection is seasonal and includes: shiitake, nameko, mukitake, several oysters, wine-cap stropharia, lion's mane, reishi, and maitake. Not content with mere comestibles, we have a growing line of forest-derived crafts, such as rustic "rosewood" buttons (cleverly created from that invasive shrub every forest landowner loves to hate, multiflora rose!), fatwood firestarters, and Swedish log candles.

Our fascination with unusual-but-useful plants ensures that we always have something of interest on hand. Blue Owl products are usually sold at several Central Ohio farmers markets and small businesses. Visiting the farmers market is not quite the same with COVID-19, but we still have food to sell and you can still participate in the local economy! Thank you for your patience and support as we all find our way through this challenging time.

News: COVID-19 changes to Blue Owl sales

We have mushrooms, fresh and dried herbs, grow-your-own mushroom logs, and lots of teas & seasoning blends. How can we get them to you? Blue Owl products are currently available in 3 different ways:

  1. The Worthington Winter Farmers Market has begun and is currently indoors at the Shops of Worthington Place mall. While we'll be there in person for our customers who wish to browse our full selection, Blue Owl will continue to use Square Invoice to accept credit card payments for pre-orders. Pre-ordering is an excellent way to spead up the process and minimize contact. Go to Blue Owl Products for current availability and further instructions.
  2. Keller Market House in Lancaster, OH stocks a variety of Blue Owl shelf-stable items like teas and seasonings in the store and has on-line ordering. In addition to what is available in-house, we are offering both fresh and dried herbs as well as a number of other items through on-line ordering only. Pick-ups are on Wednesdays. Visit the website or call Keller Market to order ahead, if you have specific questions about availability or would like to arrange curb-side pick up.
  3. Blue Owl Farm pick-up available. Finally, you may pickup "mailbox-side" directly at the farm. Pre-ordering is again required, but you are welcome to pay by cash (exact change please), check, or online pre-pay. We will then be happy to arrange a time for you to collect your purchase.
