We invite you to visit our farm and enjoy freshly made Quesadillas.   Reservations required for the patio and are available on the hour from 11-3 for 1 group at a time. You may order in advance or upon arrival. QUESADILLAS CAN BE FOR THE PATIO, PICNIC, OR TO GO.

Quesadillas consist of: A golden brown super soft flour tortilla, two scrambled eggs and sharp cheddar cheese. Customize your order with: nitrate free bacon, spinach, home grown garlic or home fries. 

Try our Iced Cold Brew Lavender Coffee made with our Simple Lavender Syrup, Gourmet Coffee, Whole Organic Milk 

sprinkled with Phenomenal Lavender. It's fresh and refreshing and allows you to taste the lavender that we grow.

We grow and sell 3 varieties of Lavender: Big Time BluePhenomenal and Sensational! because they were developed for the Northeast climate. They are more likely to succeed than English, French or Spanish Lavenders which do better in cooler dryer climates but don't like humidity.

Field plugs will next be for sale April 5th, 2021.

Quart plants will next be for sale April 25, 2021.

  • Lavender Sensational! is the next generation of Lavender Phenomenal with incredibly large and thick flowers and sturdy stems

  • Broad SILVER foliage is thick, tough, and cupped

  • Dense habit with incredible branching stems

  • Extremely good heat and humidity tolerance along with cold tolerance

  • Sweet lavender floral aroma with low camphor.

Big Time Blue will flower several times in 1 season and is hardy. The color is a pleasure to behold.

 Phenomenal grows robustly with elegant long stems, will attract numerous pollinators and Praying Mantis when full grown due to it's large size and huge volume of flowers. It's a beautiful 4 season evergreen.

Events- Host your gatherings on our farm. We have a lovely patio and garden. Farm stand can be used as a back up if it rains. 

$10 per person for up to 2 hours.

Astilbes are pink fast growing perennials that thrive in part shade.  We dig them up and can show you how to divide them. We divide ours every year and it's very gratifying.  $20-$35. (September)

Coreopsis are a feathery green, hardy, repeat blooming perennial with yellow daisy like flowers that grow 18" high and 36" diameter. That's when we split them into 4 smaller plants in the fall. It is a satisfying exercise. We can show you how. Deer resistant, drought tolerant, full sun. (October)

We have variegated Marigolds. They are hardy fast growers reaching the size of a mum and blooming until frost. They are great for borders and very practical in vegetable gardens. They attract pollinators and are a valuable staple in every garden. The flowers produce large quantities of seed allowing you to grow your own next year. 3 for $10.

 

UPON ENTERING OUR DRIVEWAY TAKE AN IMMEDIATE RIGHT HAND TURN INTO THE GRAVEL LOT ON THE RIGHT, PROCEED TOWARD THE RED FARM STAND AND PARK FACING THE STREET.

Lavender grows well in good draining soil, hillsides, raised mounds or beds. Lavender does well with 1/2 - full day of sun. It's deer resistant.

 

We have a pasture with 7 kid goats. 4 were born March 1, 2020 and 3 were born March 1, 2019. They are very sweet and we provide food to hand feed them. We invite you to visit and spend time with Salt, Vanilla, Spice Girl, Spice Momma, Sugar, Cream, and Cinnamon.

Goats will be for sale starting November 1.

There is a meadow of tall grass and wild flowers next to the goat pasture where we have cut a maze/trails. It is lovely to walk thru and your kids will enjoy it.

You are welcome to picnic down by the goat pasture.

Please stop by the farm stand first, place your order, and then we will provide you with a cup of goat feed.
