Known for its Mint Festival in August, Livingston Farms is proud to be a contributor to the St. Johns community’s annual celebration. Though there are numerous varieties of mint, we distill peppermint along with native and scotch spearmint. Not only can you use mint oil in recipes, but it also is known to have many therapeutic purposes. It has been known to be soothing to sore muscles. Personally, we use peppermint oil topically on burns and blisters and to relieve the side effects of the common cold, headaches and migraines. Our Peppermint and Spearmint oils are both essential oils, with nothing added. They are pure and a little goes a long way. You can buy our Essential Oils on the farm, at Fabiano’s Pizza and Deli, Phillip’s Orchard, OhMi Organics and the Country Store in St. Johns.

Mint compost is a great addition to any garden or flower bed and is used to provide valuable macro-nutrients to soil. Mint is high in nitrogen; one of three macro-nutrients that most plants need to grow and thrive.
We sell the product in a mulch form to help inhibit weed growth and retain moisture before breaking down into the soil over time and as a compost (more broken down state) to incorporate nutrients right into your soil.
We sell our Mint Compost for $20/yard.
We also sell it in 40lb and 20lb bags. These are available for purchase at the farm or The Garden Shop in St. Johns.
