Mid-August Update

The kickoff to the 2015 lavender product selling season began in earnest with our first Family and Friends event on August 9th. In person and on-line shoppers enjoyed a substantial discount and the people who visited the farm had an opportunity to see the operation of our farm along with  a wide range of products including our essential oil, hydrosol mist, dried lavender bundles, sachets and decorative items in person.   To those who came, we hope you enjoyed the day. We sure enjoyed having you here!  A big thank you to all who contributed to make the day a success.

A few days after Friends and Family Day, we had a chance to visit with Marie and Len who own the  Olde Stanton Stores in Stanton (Airport Road south of Mansfield) and Blue Mountain near Collingwood.  Both stores will again be carrying our products as will the Terra Nova Sweet Shope  in Terra Nova.    We hope to have an outlet in Creemore shortly.

As we write this update, our soap creator in Dunedin is busy manufacturing some exclusive lavender soap for us. The first batch, made with Folgate essential oil, will be on sale in mid September.    Soaps made with Melissa and then Grosso oil will follow as soon as the oil and the soaps have cured.

The south or "Dawn" field has now been completely harvested. As the number of flowering plants diminished, the number of bumble bees per plant rose dramatically. Harvesting the last Grosso plant was a challenge. In fact, we left the final bunches out in the field to keep the bees happy.

Please check back to the website  often as we will advise when more new lavender products become available and hopefully, the number of retail outlets increases. In the meantime, please feel free to shop on-line. We now ship for a $12 flat rate all over Canada!
