Lavender Festival Excitement!

Westwind Farm Studio will be open 10am – 4pm Saturday, July 9 and Sunday, July 10. Our farm is located on Old Germantown Rd. Follow the signs to the parking lot. Grab some clippers and pick your own lavender. Hang out and make a lavender wreath or buy one that we made. Check out our freshly distilled oils and spray. Sample lavender syrup, lemonade, and cookies — all made with our organically grown lavender and organic sugar and flour. PURE GOODNESS!

The Day Before

We are getting ready for the lavender festival! here’s what our fields look like before they get “gussied up” tomorrow. We let grass, daisies and even things folks might consider weeds go to flower so that the native bees will be “in the neighborhood” when the lavender blooms. — Join us July 9 and 10, right here at Westwind Farm Studio.

What’s happening in the lavender fields?

Here’s a look at the current status of our lavender fields. It looks like we will have plenty ready early to make oils and lots of beautiful lavender left to pick fresh at the lavender festival, July 9 and 10, right here at Westwind! Our field garden will bloom early with the moonshine achillea, but we should get some nice dried stems out of it for bouquets. We are already attracting bees to our clover and irises, and it looks like the elk have been kind to the lavender and are focused on the grasses in our lower pastures.
