Harvest to Oil

It was a fabulous season at the farm this year. We had a cracker jack crew harvesting and distilling. Have fun watching these two very short videos from this summer’s work.   The first is the staff harvesting some Lavendula Angustifolia “Hidcote Pink”. The second is the wonderful sight and sound of distillate coming out [read more…]


  Lavandula x-intermedia is a hybrid cross between Lav. Angustifolia and Lav. Latifolia. The Lavandula Angustifolias tend to have a high quality but low yielding oil, whereas the Lavandula Latifolias have a poor quality but high yielding oil. So there are quite a lot of hybrid crosses of various varieties of these two lavandulas and [read more…]

Together they make each other pop. Hidcote Pink is a lovely lavender for contrasting with other, purple, lavenders. But, even on its own in a garden [read more…]

Folgate is Blooming

  Lavandula Angustifolia “Folgate” is the official name of this beauty. Out of 39 species of lavender and over 400 varieties within those species we grow 14 of the commercially on the farm.

Pesto Rollups

On the farm we grow garlic as well as lavender, so I needed an hors d’oeuvre for a party and wanted to use the garlic scapes (flower stalks) that are so tasty and have a beautiful color. These delightful bites of pesto with a crunch were a hit at the party last night. They are [read more…]
