The Herb Lyceum is a working 4-acre farm in Groton Massachusetts operated by the Gilson family since the 1800s. Aside from growing a variety produce, herbs, and flowers, David Gilson, the current head of the household and first to farm on the land, has spent decades massaging the landscape to host events with a cozy, familial, and relaxed feel.
The grounds surrounding the farmhouse are a perfect backdrop to your next event. Guests can explore the pathways through herb gardens inspired by Provence and Tuscany while grabbing a bite at food stations set up throughout the main area and sunken gardens. A casually elegant converted greenhouse will serve as your dining room for a multi-course, family-style dinner. Dancing and music under the permanent tent cap off the perfect evening.
The Herb Lyceum is run by the team at Puritan & Company in Cambridge, where Will Gilson is the chef.
