A Wonderful Time Of Year: Harvesting Lavender

It’s hard to believe an entire year has passed since the last lavender harvest.

We grow this lavender at the farm and then sell the bouquets down at The Local Grocer. Curious about this magical herb?

Read all about last year’s harvest here AND here is a great read about anything you’ve ever wanted to know about lavender.

 

Seasonal Farm Bouquets. We’re doing a new thing!

Organic locally grown seasonal bouquets from our farm down the road, Mountain Flower Farm! This week’s bouquets are filled with medicinal and edible herbs like lavender, catnip, basil, oregano, yarrow, lady’s mantle, and wormwood. These edible and medicinal bouquets will change through the growing season as the herbs and flowers bloom and fade. We are super excited to share some our farm loveliness in this new way. Beauty makes the world go round! – We will have a limited supply of bouquets each week starting at $12 for sale at The Local Grocer.

JULY FARM UPDATE: WHAT’S HAPPENING UP AT MOUNTAIN FLOWER FARM?

So far, it’s been a pretty dry summer with stretches of heat. With little rain, we have been quite busy with watering that seems never-ending! That being said, our produce is starting to pop. We are harvesting lettuce daily, for sale in the market as well as for our salads made to order in the cafe.

Additionally, we are offering farm bouquets in the store, featuring fresh cut flowers and herbs. These start at $12- and make the perfect gift for a friend or yourself.

Here are some of our favorites from the first week of July:
