A Family Commitment
Lynn Kirkland completed her herbal diploma in 1990 and began to make natural remedies from their family home. The demand for her natural and effective products grew until in 1993 The Herb Farm was established, becoming the home to The Herb Farm's 100% natural skincare and healthcare products.
After traveling the world as an international model and completing her business degree, Sarah Cowan, (Lynns daughter) joined her as a business partner in 2006 and took over the overall running of the business.
The Herb Farm is a family owned and operated business which can be seen in the old fashioned family values and a commitment to natural which is at the heart of the business and the Kirkland/Cowan's lives.

There’s an answer in the garden, its Natures pharmacy and what better way
Farm to Face
Our Farm-to-face skin care embraces the use of pure and fresh ingredients, that are locally sourced or grown right on our premises where our beauty products are made. This allows us availability of the freshest ingredients, all while ensuring the purist quality of said products. As pioneers of the farm-to-face approach, we are focused on the sustainability and transparency of our products throughout the production and manufacturing processes.
Now more so than ever, we believe consumers deserve complete transparency from beauty brands; know all the ingredients, where they came from and how the product was manufactured. Farm to face skin care means skin care products that are good for the planet as well as good for the skin!
Our commitment to sustainability has been recognised with the following awards:
'Trailblazer - Small & Medium Business' in the Sustainable Business Awards for the Central and Southern Region
'Trailblazer - Small & Medium Business' in the NZI National Sustainable Business Awards
'Sustainable Business' Award in the Manawatu Business Awards
Herbalist Lynn Kirkland founded The Herb Farm in 1993 to offer people the option and benefits of using wholly natural products - free of synthetics and chemical nasties; natural skin care products with ingredients that came from the bounty of nature - brimming with all its active goodness.
Many of our herb ingredients are grown in the tranquillity of our own gardens where they are picked as we need them, or harvested on the day they are at their very best. Their fresh essence is infused into each of Lynn’s formulations.
What we can’t grow we source from like-minded individuals and companies who share our vision. These ingredients along with the magic of our garden, our care and love, are hand crafted on site into beautiful, natural, products that heal, revitalise and nurture.
Every product that leaves our Farm is infused with the spirit of us, our attitude and our place - a secret ingredient that makes all the difference.
