LET’S TALK ABOUT PLANTS
One if the most exciting aspects of our farm is, well, our plants! That’s right, each plant on our lavender and herb farm has been carefully hand-selected and serves a very specific purpose for our farm, our business, and for our visitors.
If you think a lavender is just a lavender, then let us share with you that not all lavender plants are equal…or actually lavender at all! Sounds crazy, right?
How about an example to think about! When you think about apples, what comes to mind? Is that apple you are thinking of red or maybe it’s green? Maybe it is a yellow apple or a red apple that has a lot of yellow to it. Is the apple sweet or sour? Is it a big apple by nature or a smaller one? Organic or not organic? There are so many different colors, flavors, sizes and ways the apple was grown or processed. Each breed of apple was designed with a purpose and has it’s place.
Well, it is the same example with the wonderful world of lavenders and everything in their family. We grow and process premier varieties and cultivars of lavender, lavandin and other herbs for organic culinary use and other premier varieties and cultivars for bath and body products. The same is said for our organic essential oils and hydrosols that come from select varieties and cultivars based upon their properties and preferred uses.
