It usually surprises people when they learn that we actually started Neem Tree Farms expecting to grow the trees, not manufacture or sell neem products. We’re dirt farmers at heart and we love watching plants grow. Since planting our first neem trees in 1992, we’ve become the nation’s largest grower of neem trees — although we’ll be the first to admit that makes us the big fish in a very, very small pond.
Neem trees will always be the heart of our business, but we’re growing more and more plants based on customer requests. We’re now growing gotu kola, betel leaf, chaya, holy basil, ashwagandha, and brahmi (Bacopa monnieri).
Some plants are so easy to grow — and hard to find — that we’re offering free seeds including Everglade Tomatoes, moringa and Daikon Radish. For the first time online, we’re giving away seeds for the plants we grow for caterpillars, which have very specific dietary requirements.
- Milkweed, the tropical species, although we’re working really hard on growing native species this summer.
- Dill and parsley, both of which are larval food for the black swallowtail
- Candelabra senna is not only a showstopper when it’s in bloom but hosts caterpillars for the giant sulfur butterfly so we almost always have them flitting from flower to flower.
We also have golden cosmos which have naturalized in our yard and are so spectacular that people regularly stop to take photos of them.

PLEASE NOTE: Restrictions in Hawaii and Puerto Rico prevent us from shipping living plants to those states. The state of Arizona also has made it nearly impossible to ship there. (We can ship free seeds, just not living plants.)
