The Herbary is a 15-acre property located five miles west of Belmar beaches that has been lovingly restored by local award-winning landscape architect Ron Springer. He purchased the dilapidated chicken farm in 2001 and has created a tranquil farm setting that is enjoyed by customers considered to be “friends of the farm” by his family and the Bear Creek crew.

The vision at Bear Creek Herbary is to embrace the local, health conscience mindset and provide likeminded folks involved in the “back to the farm” movement with a go-to place.

Upcoming events at the Herbary including a dinner in the greenhouse where all proceeds will go to a local charity.
