Morningsun Herb Farm

Morningsun Herb Farm is a specialty nursery located on an old walnut orchard in beautiful Pleasants Valley, perched in the rolling hills on the outskirts of Vacaville. Morningsun propagates and sells more than 600 varieties of culinary, medicinal, and landscaping herbs, as well as a large selection of native perennials for hummingbird and butterfly gardening, scented geraniums, and heirloom vegetable starts. Spread throughout the property are carefully tended demonstration gardens and quiet sitting areas, and visitors also love to meet the resident donkeys. The farm hosts an Open House event each spring, as well as a popular Tomato Day celebration in the fall. Recently featured in Sunset Magazine, Morningsun Herb Farm is one of Vacaville’s most unique and special places to visit.
