Established in 2019 by Lindsay Myron, Smoot’s Flavor Farm is a one acre drop in the bucket of a larger family farm on the Palouse. Rooted at the base of Smoot Hill, about 10 miles north of Pullman, Washington, this woman owned and operated business produces naturally grown flavor for direct markets and the local community.
Smoot’s Flavor Farm specializes in culinary and tea herbs. From culinary classics like basil, mint, and oregano to specialty varieties like epazote, fenugreek, and orange thyme, Smoot’s grows heaps of full-flavored herbs.
Founded on flavor, we are an advocate for inspired home-cooking. Incorporating herbs into your kitchen routine is a great way to make the most of seasonal produce and simple ingredients. Visit our blog for recipes and inspiration.
As a new farm, we currently offer fresh herbs, but we’re working on a food-safe dehydration facility for dried and processed goods like herbal tea blends, spices, bulk dried herbs, and infused salts. This facility should be up and running in 2021.
To ensure the highest quality and flavor, all our herbs are spray-free and grown naturally with zero chemical inputs. We use certified organic compost and practice no-till production to feed and protect our soil microbiome. Although Smoot’s is not yet certified Organic (it takes time), practice organic methods and use organic inputs. Our herbs are grown with utmost care and we strive for a healthy and balanced agro-ecosystem.
Second only to customer satisfaction, we steward our farm’s ecology by providing pollinator habitat, protecting our precious soil resources and offering our surplus production to local food pantries in Whitman County.
Lindsay was raised in Pullman, Washington, where she grew up with dirt under her fingernails and a love of the outdoors. Lindsay started Smoot’s Flavor Farm with a mission to grow the highest quality produce, diversify her family’s farming operation, and share with the community the power of a good meal. Her husband Ian Clark–a 5th generation farmer–and Lindsay both farm, albeit separately, but together they share a passion for growing things well, a deep love for the Palouse and for each other.
