Hi, I'm Lora!
My inspiration comes from my daughter! From the time she was little she would be a princess in my gardens having tea with her dolls and younger sister, and sometimes her little brother! She will always live with us so we decided to have a lavender, herb, and flower farm where she could flourish.
We started out with some willow and bittersweet vine but because I have always loved lavender, we decided to give it a try in Alabama. It is not easy to grow here because of the moisture, but through some study and hard work we have 1200 thriving lavender plants in my front yard! We are expanding to an additional six acres where we have incorporated flowers and different types of evergreens we can use for drying and wreath making.
Our farm is local and run by my family and volunteers. Everything is made, packaged, and sold on the farm. We have bath and body products, blends of tea from our farm herbs and flowers, aromatherapy items, as well as lavender essential oil. We practice back to nature sustainable farming philosophy and handcraft lavender and herbal inspired products without harsh chemicals, detergents, or preservatives. We distill on site many of our hydrosols and oils used in our products. In June, we open our lavender field to the public to enjoy and pick a fresh bundle of amazing aroma-filled lavender.
What is your favorite thing about being a maker in the Huntsville area?
Our customers are wonderful and come from all over the country to settle here in Huntsville as we have. So many who have visited our farm have seen huge lavender farms in France and even in the USA in Washington state, and they comment on our place being a little piece of heaven. That warms my heart.
