“When the Williams family sold their suburban home and bought a small acreage on the outskirts of Melbourne, they did not realise what it would lead to.  Now, fourteen years later, their small venture has grown into a thriving herb farm in which four generations of the family are actively involved.  The enterprise provides expression for the varied talents and interests of the family, and these contributions, from Carey’s kiwis to Elvie’s posies, make up the unique ambience of Chamomile Farm.
The diverse species of plants which find a place there number five hundred.  They include medicinal and culinary herbs of all kinds, as well as flowers, fruit, vegetables and exotic and native trees and shrubs – and, of course, the chamomile lawn.  The Williams’ background as florists is apparent in the beauty of the garden design, and the care with which each element is placed.  The many visitors who come to Chamomile Farm appreciate the restfulness of these beautiful surroundings.”
