This year our lavender was harvested on Saturday June 15. It typically takes several days to harvest our beautiful crop. Fortunately, this year we had a large harvest crew and we were able to cut the entire field, bundle the cut lavender and hang it up into the barn to dry all in one day! Plus, we were able to accomplish a few extra nagging farm chores to boot!

We would like to give an extra BIG thanks to our 2013 Harvest Manager Sally Bond...without your coordinating efforts Sally, we wouldn't have finished so quickly and efficiently! THANK YOU HARVEST TEAM!
