Gathered Threads is a small family farm-based business located on 6 acres in Nelson County, Virginia. The inspiration and hard work behind our eclectic little farm comes from Katherine Herman. Her interest in farming began while she lived and worked in Tanzania as a Peace Corps Volunteer 2001-03.   She then spent 10 years as a vegetable grower in the northern Virginia area, Shenandoah Valley, and Central Va area from 2004 thru 2012 before venturing to start off on her own in 2014.  During this time, Katherine was also taking herbal Classes at Sacred Plant Traditions in Charlottesville, which helped spark the interest to grow and provide locally grown herbs.

Though not yet certified organic, we are personally dedicated to growing all plants sustainably without the use of any pesticides, insecticides, or chemical fertilizers.

Gathered Threads has been an amazing, difficult and rewarding journey. Katherine & Ralph, and our two children Nathaniel & Margaret, are looking forward to the adventure ahead!

Hope to see you at market!
