Lads and Lavender

It’s harvest time again

One of the more pleasurable jobs at this time of the year is the harvesting of our lavender.

Try to imagine the giddy almost overpowering aromas that the boys are with all  that long summer’s day.

Nathan, Simon and Keith collect the lavender flowers with a Japanese tea harvester we have adapted for the job.

The bees, particularly bumbles, tend to view this with displeasure, so some care is necessary.

We then take the lavender to our lab, where we carefully distill the oil.  Two Paddocks is coveted by many, rightly so. We hope to be able to offer it for sale when we open our on -line shop.

Lavender Water is a by product, one that the Prop throws liberally into his bath.
