Every week, we plan a 10:30 a.m. tour that focuses on growing and utilizing your herbs. No, don't keep them for years as treasures in the cupboard. None of that oregano still in the can from your first year of marriage. Smile. USE herbs frequently and freely. They are taste enhancing and medicinal. Yes, you heard right!

This week, our walking tour includes your own cup of herbs to dry and use. Bring a hat and walk the farm with us!

Our demonstration will be at 1:00 and will feature an herb vinegar how-to, with recipes.

PICNICS are available between noon and 1:00 p.m., $8.50 per person. There are numerous outdoor tables and spots where you can sit and enjoy lunch with a friend. CALL us BY NOON on Thursday to order and leave your name, number of lunches desired, and your phone or email. Includes an entree sandwich, scones, 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.
