Here are more information about the lavender and our farm.
Fact: The lavender is always in bloom in July. Not in June, not in August, certainly not in September and definitively not in October. Should we ad the months of April and May as well? Lavender is a crop that comes once a year....in July. And when we receive a low rate review on Trip Advisor because the lavender was not in bloom in August or September or any other months of the year, we are sorry that you missed July, but there is nothing we can do about the fact that you did not come in July.
Fact: Due to Covid-19, we cancelled our festival that was going to be held on July 4-5 and 11-12
Fact: The festival is cancelled but our fields and boutique are open to the public. Just like it says on our main page, we, the boutique and fields are open 7 days a week from 10am to 5pm. No reservation is needed.
Fact: While in bloom, it cost $8.00 per person to access our fields. Children 12 and under are free and we also provide you with free parking.
Fact: While in bloom, in July, in order to ensure and respect the guidance and directives established by the Province of Ontario and the Public Health Measures, we will be implementing measures to address overcrowding and promote physical distancing during busy visitation times by limiting occupancy in our fields and our boutique. This will include limiting the number of visitors entering the fields at once. Safety of our visitors and staff is always our top priority.
We will be continually assessing our approach and may need to make adjustments to services depending on the advice of the province’s medical officials.
We ask you to keep a safe distance of 2 meters from other groups just like you do everywhere else.
Fact: It is not possible to cut or harvest your own fresh lavender when you come to visit at the farm. And not allow to pull either!
Fact: We will be harvesting lavender in our fields because it is our main ingredients in all of our lavender products you can find in our boutique. So eventually, the fields will have less and less lavender to look at. Usually by the first week of August, it is all harvested.
Fact: We do sell plants at the the farm. This year we have: Hidcote, Munstead, Folgate and Grosso
1 year old plant in 4"pot at $6.50
2 year old plant in gal pot at $16.50
3 year old plant in 3 gal pot at $32.00
Lavender takes three year to be mature so you can go home with a baby plant, a teenager or a mature plant. You should not let the baby plant flower this year in order to send the energy in the root system.
Fact: As stated on our main page, we have now closed our B&B since last fall. So we are not able to host you anymore. Please do your own search since we are not in the loop anymore and do not know which accommodation is open.
