Lavender Festival - July 12 & 13, 2014, 10 am - 4:30 pm
2013 Harvest started July 15
A heart-felt thank you to all of the visitors to the Lavender Festival. It was a great event, made even more memorable by the many interesting - and interesting! - visitors. For all of those who missed the Festival this year - we'll see you in 2014 at the Lavendar Festival on the weekend of July 12 & 13!
A little bit of Provence in Ontario.
Overlooking a panoramic view of Lake Ontario and the Northumberland Hills, our field of Lavender is an intoxicating sight. We grow 16 varieties of Lavender all with distinctly different colours, tastes, and smells.
Pat Scott and her family will welcome you to our Festival.
Tour the field in bloom, then come up to our historic restored 1924 steel barn ( the first in our area). Sample our Culinary Treats : We offer our by now Famous Lavender Ice Cream, made with 5 distinctly different Lavenders. Try our Lavender Lemonade, so refreshing on a hot day, or have lunch. Try Linda’s famous and exclusive to the festival, Lavender cookies utterly Delicious. Sample Catherine’s favourite Lavender Chevre. We love to serve Chevre (goat cheese) spread on a piece of French bread lightly grilled. Yum. These delicacies should convince even the least adventurous foodies that it is time for Lavender to come out of the closet.
Speaking of the closet where Lavender is a natural bug deterrent and wonderful air scent. We sell our Dried Lavender in large bunches, The French Lavender varieties are sold in long cloth bags, ( the better for squishing to release the Lavender oils that are the scent) ,We also have Lavender stuffed Pillows made with 100% cotton pillow ticking , stitched locally of course. Create your own pillow covers or enjoy Veronica’s Vintage assortment of unique cushion covers each one newly made of vintage fabrics, each one a work of art.
For the last few years we have been offering Locally made Lavender Soap, and last year we introduced “Lavender Water” a fabulous Spray : Both have been amazingly popular we will of course have as many as Jane can make again this year.
We will of course have cards with beautiful photos of our Lavender and farm to sell and books and always some new things we like. Scotts Barn napkins and Aprons and perhaps some painted china (a big hit last year) all designed and made locally.
