It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce that we will not be opening this year for our U Pick season! We have waited and waited for the blueberries to ripen but Mother Nature had the upper hand this year! The wet and cold spring with record rains, a week of snow in April and daily hail took its toll!
We are deeply sorry we won't be opening and sharing the farm for the U Pick season this year. We hope you will keep us in your best thoughts and remember us during the holiday for some lavender products or for a gift for that special person.
We would love any visits you would like to schedule as we worked hard to get the farm ready for the season. We completed the Gazebo project where the old tool shed and kennel used to be off of the drive. The new barn is a joy for all of us! The "littles" (Jack and Diane are pigmy goats) and Daisy are enjoying their new stalls and have beautiful view and pasture area.
The gazebo has been a favorite for staff and guests alike as it provides a cool spot to enjoy the farm views and watch the crazy goat antics.
Our new kitty, Elvis was adopted from the city but he has settled in quite nicely and loves to meet and greet everyone who arrives at the farm.
The gardens are flourishing with fresh produce and herbs. The tomato house looks like a tamed jungle and we have enjoyed the early tomatoes and cucumbers already.
The dahlias are in the ground along with all the yacon starts. All have enjoyed the summer weather albeit a bit late.
Potatoes are almost ready for harvest, along with the onions and garlic.
We have started the lavender harvest with the culinary drying and finished the distillation of the first batches this week.
