This week, our walking tour includes your own cup of herbs to dry and use. Bring a hat and walk the farm with us!

Our demonstration will be at 1:00 and will feature an herb vinegar how-to, with recipes.

PICNICS are available between noon and 1:00 p.m., $8.50 per person. There are numerous outdoor tables and spots where you can sit and enjoy lunch with a friend.

May 13 is Culinary Lavender Friday!

Drying Culinary Lavender

The “English” lavenders, lavandula angustifolia varieties, are the sweetest lavenders both in character and in culinary quality. It is argued that many of the intermedias are just as good for cooking, but, we are entitled to our preferences! Experience has shown us that these sprawling beauties stay on the stem well, and hold their sweet ester.

This Friday, we will be cutting some of these while they are in their prime, and demonstrating drying techniques. We will be taste testing lavender chocolate powdered sugar and will show you how to make your own! Culinary buds will be for sale in the lavender barn.

Picnic lunches:

We don’t want you to miss out, so PREORDER by Thursday at noon, 706-595-5081, for your packed lunch to be ready on Friday!! Enjoy your picnic on the farm. $8.50 per person, includes lunch, dessert and tea.

    Tour will be at 10:30 this week and demonstrations will be at 1:00. Come on out to the Farm!
