While messing around on the internet I stumbled upon a U-pick herb farm in Missoula.  Coming up on the 12th the owner will have a guided U-pick.  There are additional dates and more information at Urban Herbs.

Here is more info about that U-pick Fresh Herbs Event (from article):

A passion for growing herbs is blooming into a dream come true for Missoula resident Lori Elliott of Urban Herbs in Missoula.

Urban Herbs has recently expanded to 1/2 acre of garden space for growing over 100 species of traditionally medicinal tea herbs and about 40 culinary herbs.Urban Herbs grows and harvest outdoors so the herbs are organically home grown.

Here is what Lori has to say about her joyful dream:

I'm doing it! Who would have thought that growing some companion plants for my vegie garden about 20 years ago in Spokane, WA would turn into a half acre (so far) herb park in Missoula, Mt!

Each year, I take another baby step in my dream as time and materials allow. This season, I have 4 u-pick days planned and a possible Pesto Party TBA if crops and weather allow. Grow with me and enjoy the fruits of my labor!

Join Lori For U-Pick Days!
June 12, July 10th, Aug 14 , & Sept 11th.
Harvest your own fresh herbs!

Bring your gloves and shears and I'll provide the rest! I'll teach you what's what, what it's good for,

and how to harvest it. Choose from over 100 tea herbs and 45 culinary herbs.

The cost is $7 for a big gallon freezer bag of fresh herbs.


Start Time:9:00 AM End Time:5:00 PM

Myself and two friends went to it. It really is a great deal at 7 dollars for a gallon of herbs. Lots and lots of herbs, nicely arranged and labeled on the sheet so you know what you are looking at. We had a great time!
