Nothing better than a vining tomato!

Nothing better than a vining tomato!

Wild garlic, fresh tomatoes and leafy basil are presenting themselves with gusto and it is PESTO time! This Friday we will be open from 10 AM until 6 PM and will be making pesto for our 11:00 demo. Our signature basil blend includes columnar, purple and leafy green basils, all featured in the basil arrangements we sell through Augusta Locally Grown and on Farm Fridays. Pasta and pesto samples will be featured along with fresh, lavender lemonade. Dress for some summertime sizzle and Come On Out To The Farm this Friday!

A few lavender bundles do remain, $7 each, and all you can pick garlic is still available, $5.

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.
