Drying Culinary Lavender

The “English” lavenders, lavandula angustifolia varieties, are the sweetest lavenders both in character and in culinary quality. It is argued that many of the intermedias are just as good for cooking, but, we are entitled to our preferences! Experience has shown us that these sprawling beauties stay on the stem well, and hold their sweet ester.

This Friday, we will be cutting some of these while they are in their prime, and demonstrating drying techniques. We will be taste testing lavender chocolate powdered sugar and will show you how to make your own! Culinary buds will be for sale in the lavender barn.

Picnic lunches:

We don't want you to miss out, so PREORDER by Thursday at noon, 706-595-5081, for your packed lunch to be ready on Friday!! Enjoy your picnic on the farm. $8.50 per person, includes lunch, dessert and tea.

Heavenly!

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.
