Our Name

Who doesn’t love a play on words?  But Big Thyme Farm is so much more than that.

Yes, we grow thyme: common thyme, creeping thyme, and lemon thyme. Each a delightful herb and the latter also a delicious tea.

Big Thyme is also a nod to Kate’s mom, Eleanor, an opinionated woman who loved accentuating her truths with “Big Time!” 


  • “You kids need to settle down. Big time!”
  • This pie is delicious. Big Time!”

As we debated names for our small farm, the memory of Eleanor, and her larger than life spirit, pushed us toward Big Thyme. 

Small farm, big attitude – just how she would like it.  (Thanks, Mom!)
