How do you like yours…..

Relativity. You know, some days you, well, give up. You've had it with those opposing internal arguments. You've scrapped with them long enough. You throw them in their corners, tell them to stay in their rooms for awhile until they can get along, put them in time out, untidy, niggling internal evaluations.

For example, the head game you play about multiple coffeehouse lattes without a thought vs. same shake of change and two days deliberation over breaking loose with the bucks for a gallon of organic milk. Not that you must choose. Not that there is a “right” thing. Take the independent research that NPR broadcast today about organic whole milk having greater than 60% more active omega three fatty acids than the same non-organic milk. Okay, I turned up the radio. I knew it would find an evidence base, I thought. I slapped the steering wheel. Let the information find a peaceable place within you, I told myself. Don't go out campaigning with this fantastic new pro-organics evidence or worse generalize the organic milk information without substantiation. Slap-my-own-hand.

After all, we all have to have a little latte splurge, now and then. And, who can drink organic whole milk all the time without piling on the calories?

What? Yes. Oh, yes. Uh, huh. I'll take a Green Tea Frappucino, with just a little organic whipped cream, please. Spring 025


Sitting on the porch that is the definition of home-grown comfort, Amy brought out a dish of pecans to snack on with our lavender iced tea. The pecans were sweet with a hint of salt and ... smoked! (Patrick throws a lot of stuff on the grill and in the smoker and the results are always spectacular.) The pecans were like heaven.

Between the lavender everywhere, the porch, the view, the company, and the pecans, we might just as well have been in heaven.

You'll want to go back again and again!

Among the gardens and 100-year-old farm house is a picturesque red barn where Amy and Patrick not only sell their merchandise but also entertain and/or put on workshops. I have had the pleasure of attending several of these events ranging from cookie making, to lavender harvesting and arranging, to yoga classes.

I am always looking for what they have available because once you experience the sheer beauty and peaceful feel of White Hills Farm you too will want to go back again and again.

For me, it's a place tied to fond memories

White Hills Farm is the perfect backdrop for any occasion -- it has this way of enveloping and elevating meaningful celebrations. For me, it's a place tied to fond memories and an eagerness to return. Year round, its something to behold, a slice of heaven run by the best of people.
