How did we get started? In 1985, The Varney Family started Varney’s Chemist Laden, in Fredericksburg’ Texas. In 1991, Varney’s Chemist Laden blossomed into Fredericksburg Herb Farm. In addition, to the original retail shop on Main Street, the Varneys established over four acres of farmland with gardens, a commercial greenhouse, a bed & breakfast, a shop, a tearoom, a day spa, and a restored historic Texas home.
The business initially distinguished itself in a competitive tourist town by offering unique and natural products such as toiletries and small potted herbs. As time passed, demand grew for the shop’s other product lines, which included herbal vinegars and seasonings, as well as toiletries and potpourris. Selling our products regionally and then nationally seemed like a natural expansion opportunity for the business’s growing popularity and the public’s newfound interest in herbs.
In 2007, after 23 years in operation, we realized it was time to get back to our roots that gave their business its first sprout. Fredericksburg Herb Farm was sold and we reinvented ourselves as URBANherbal.
In 2022, URBANherbal moved to our current location in the historic Monte Vista neighborhood of San Antonio. URBANherbal continues to provide an intimate and personalized atmosphere, offering unique artisanal herbal products. Our products and herbal knowledge have won international awards and have been recognized by the press since 1985.
