Please note that our season is dictated by the weather and these dates are approximate.
Our farm is full of many different aromatic herbs and plants that we harvest by hand before drying or distilling to be used in our products. Throughout the growing season from May into September (and some years even October!) you can find us picking calendula, rose petals and rose hips, oregano, thyme, savory, basil, rosemary, lemon balm, lemon verbena, lemon grass, lavender, violas, rose geranium, Echinacea, lindens, sage…as they say, there’s always room for another plant in the gardener’s garden!
We use traditional steam distillation to extract pure essential oils and hydrosols from several aromatic herbs and plants on our farm. All of the distilling is done on-site in small batches to ensure we achieve the high quality of oil and hydrosol we desire.
We mainly distill 4 different cultivars of lavender and their pure essential oil and hydrosol is available for sale in our gift shop. We also distill spearmint, thyme, oregano, sage, helichrysum, rose geranium, douglas fir, lemon grass, lemon balm, rosemary and roses – many of their hydrosols are available to custom blend at our Hydrosology bar in our gift shop.
Our gift shop is open from May to December and our gardens are open from mid-May to mid-October for self-guided and guided tours. We love to see families at the farm – in our gardens you can find a small play area, a hedge maze and you can even try your hand at a scavenger hunt! (Please note that all children require adult supervision.) We also offer a variety of workshops and host several events throughout the season in support of our local community.
Please check our Farm Visits page for the most up-to-date information.
We accept groups by reservation only. Please note that we are a small farm and cannot accommodate large tour buses.
While we love pets, they are not allowed in our gift shop or gardens due to Health Canada Regulations (we are a food-processing farm and facility). We do have a small shelter and water dish in our parking lot that your pet is welcome to use and you can walk them in our rural area.
Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the property and we ask that you extinguish your cigarettes in your ashtray or in the bucket provided in our parking lot.
Due to BC farm regulations, picnics are not permissible in the garden. We have picnic tables in front of our gift shop that you are welcome to use instead.
We have two different lavenders that we sell as fresh or dried bundles. A bundle has approximately 125 stems and the cost is $15.00/bundle.
