Encounters

Just talkin'
Just talkin’

The deepest insights and blessings arrive by way of encounters, incidental or fated, unmediated by social devices and machinery. We committed to being open on Fridays to share our farm and its successes and disasters with folks who wanted an experiential visit to a little lavender farm. As is often the case, we have been given much in the sharing! We have met so many interesting and wonderful people this summer.

As our fresh lavender season winds up, we will be demonstrating the “sweet things” that may be created by including lavender in baking. Come on out to our demo event this Friday at 11 AM! Lavender cookies, lavender simple sugar uses and instructions, and a “how-to”, hands-on, lavender preparation for use in baking will be included.

Okay, really, there are only a few bundles of lavender left in the field. $7 cash and carry, LAST WEEK!

Summertime Herb Blendings

Nothing better than a vining tomato!
Nothing better than a vining tomato!

Wild garlic, fresh tomatoes and leafy basil are presenting themselves with gusto and it is PESTO time! This Friday we will be open from 10 AM until 6 PM and will be making pesto for our 11:00 demo. Our signature basil blend includes columnar, purple and leafy green basils, all featured in the basil arrangements we sell through Augusta Locally Grown and on Farm Fridays. Pasta and pesto samples will be featured along with fresh, lavender lemonade. Dress for some summertime sizzle and Come On Out To The Farm this Friday!

A few lavender bundles do remain, $7 each, and all you can pick garlic is still available, $5.

Dynamic Infusions

The Art of Infusion
The Art of Infusion

We are loving our Farm Fridays! What a great crowd last week, all picking lavender bouquets, gorgeous wild garlic bulbils and making basil top dressing with us. Lavender is such a multi-talented June dancer. She feeds the bees, paints the field and offers amazing calming esters with the pinch of a single bud. And, yes, there are still a few bouquets to be had. We will be harvesting long stem for those who missed us last week.

Our 11:00 demonstration this week will be a real introduction to herbal oil infusions. A formulaic approach to farm grown materials and an informed knowledge of carrier oils make for the best and most consistent infusions. Comfrey and Lavender will be prepared and packed on the spot. Come out and see infusion at work!

Our aromatherapy oils, balms, soaps and culinary lavender and herb blends will be available for sale. Bouquets, first come, first serve. You pick garlic, all you can pull, $5! All sales, cash or check and carry.
