Kim Berg and Kathe Kitchens know their herbs. In fact, the twin sisters grow more than 17 kinds in their organic garden in rural Belton.

The sisters started their herb, flower and vegetable garden more than a year ago with a small sectioned off area in their yard. This summer their garden, known as the Bestemor Herb Farm, expanded enough to support a growing number of customers at the Harker Heights Farmers Market.

“Right now we’re happy to sell our products at just one farmers market,” Berg said. “We hope to expand to support the local community.”

The sisters are happy to share their knowledge of organic gardening with anyone who asks.

“Every time we’re at the market someone will ask us questions about our style of gardening,” Kitchens said. “We love to share our ideas and knowledge about what we do.”

The sisters use no pesticides and pride themselves in a healthy, happy lifestyle.

“People need to start taking more responsibility for their own health,” Berg said. “Organic gardening is just one step to a better life.”
