Attention Friends!! Farm Fridays closed for the season!

Hello Friends,

We have had a wonderful lavender season at White Hills Farm. The development of our small enterprise has been enhanced tenfold by those of you who have come out and experienced our lavender beginnings. We are so grateful and loved meeting and doing business with all of you!

We do have news to share with you, however. Several family matters have steered us toward a decision to limit our season this year. Our seventeen year old niece, McKayla Creef, has been in a near fatal accident. We are going to be limiting some of our activities for the fall season to respond to the needs of our family. Our products will still be available for farm pick-up by phone appointment, and limitedly, through Augusta Locally Grown. Call us at 706-595-5081 or email, whitehillsfarm@gmail.com. and we will correspond with you!

All of your prayers and thoughts are much appreciated.

Sincerely,

Ben and Lisa Kessler
White Hills Farm

July 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th, Dog Days of Summer Happenings!

Dog Days Dahlias will be for Sale!
Dog Days Dahlias will be for Sale!

Memory. My maternal grandmother, standing on the screened porch looking out across the field on a hot summer evening. “Young’uns, the Dog Days of Summer are upon us,” she would declare, wiping her Irish brow with a cotton hankie. Those Dog Days have arrived in Georgia, and not the Bulldog kind! Our surprisingly early and gorgeous lavender bloom is coming to an end for the season, but our Farm Fridays will continue with new herbs and veggies coming on and several exciting Fridays of demonstrations, in spite of Dog Days!

A list is in order, so here goes!

July 4th, Open from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.. In our 11:00 demonstration, we will present a couple of tried and true herbal applications and teas for inflammation. Sounds serious, but it will be a fun, hands-on demo! Dried lavender bundles, many herbal bath and body and culinary items available for sale.

July 11th, We will not be open at the farm, as we are representing Georgia Grown at the Augusta, GA, state visitor center. Come out and see all your regional farm and agri-tourism options, along with other interesting local businesses at the Georgia State Line Visitor Center from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m..

July 18th, closed for vacation.

July 25th, Open from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. with a very interesting morning demo at 11:00, at which time we will be making vinegar infusions from interesting and wonderful farm grown herbs. Lots of tastings and veggies. As always, our on farm sales of lavender products and culinary herbs continue.

Come on out to the Farm!
