There are two branches of Barefoot Herbs in Gauteng, one in Muldersdrift and one
in Meyerton. Both have working herb gardens, and you can follow the progress of alterations
and seasons in our photo gallery. You are also welcome to visit, the Muldersdrift
branch is open Wednesday to Friday, 9.00am to 4.00pm. To visit the Meyerton branch
please phone to make an appointment.
All of our herbs are grown and harvested for use in health remedies, beauty products,
culinary mixes and gifts. The produce is organically grown - chemical fertilizers
and insecticides are never used.
In addition to supplying our own range of herbal products, we also sell the raw materials
for you to make your own. You can buy your herb plants, dried herb plus many other
things that you may need.
We publish a newsletter which covers two herbs in detail each month. It is sent
by email and is available on this web-site. If you wish to be added to our mailing
list please contact us. If you have just joined the mailing list, you can read old
copies in Archived Newsletters. All of the past recipes have also been sorted into
sections, so look at the recipes pages too.
We run several one day workshops, plus a comprehensive home and family course which
introduces you to the world of herbs. In just one morning a month for a year, you
can be learning how to successfully grow and harvest your own herbs, plus make your
own herbal products for medicine, cooking and bath and beauty use.
Our gardens are ‘working gardens’, and not purely decorative. Herbs and seeds are
constantly harvested for use in our products. Because of this the plants may sometimes
look straggly or untidy; you may wonder why a ‘dead’ looking plant has not been removed;
weeds may be growing where you think they shouldn’t and flowers may not have been
Don’t worry! It is all part of the life in a working herb garden and things are as
they should be!
