Just wanted to update you all on how the season is going!  Our first varieties of English Lavender are loaded with blooms and ready to be cut. These include the varieties  Loddon Blue, Imperial Gem and Folgate.  The flowers are just starting to open so now is a great time to cut them for drying on the stem!  They will continue to become more fragrant as more flowers open.  Next week our English variety, Royal Velvet will start being ready to cut.  Just after the 4th of July our hybrid, long-stemmed varieties, 'Grosso' and 'Provence' will be ready, followed by variety 'Super' about a week later.  Since about 3/4 of our field is comprised of the hybrid lavenders, our peak bloom time is around the 4th of July and the week after. 

We are open Monday through Saturday 10 am to 4 pm all summer long, including the 4th of July. We have lots of handmade aromatic products (made right here) in our shop as well as some awesome oatmeal cookies and lavender brownies, along with our lavender lemonade to enjoy while you're here.  Allow a little time to sit in one of our adirondack chairs in the shade of our hickory tree and enjoy the sights, sounds and lovely smells of our lavender farm.

Tell your friends!  Keep up with progress by liking our facebook page:

Thanks and hope to see you here!
