Mmmm … Lavender Honeycomb

In the New Year we teamed up with Anderdon Apiaries with the goal of bringing to  you our customers some 100% natural lavender honey.  Even though the spring was hard on our lavender plants that first crop of honey had the subtle delicate of lavender.  The bees gathered the nectar from those little purple lavender flowers and it transformed the flavour of the honey perfectly.  We have been wanting to offer lavender honey for a few years now and did not want to infuse the flavour of lavender into the honey.  We wanted mother nature’s pure and natural version with the help of our friends, the honey bees.  Our patience paid off and despite the damage we sustained to our lavender plants we were able to offer 100% natural unpasturized lavender honey, and boy was it delicious.

 

Once the lavender bloom was finished the bees moved onto to consuming the nectar from all those pretty wildflowers around the farm.  This honey was collected, placed in jars and is still available in our retail shop. It’s a wonderful product too, for all you honey lovers.

As the season  progressed our friends at Anderdon apiaries collected the honey comb and we are thrilled to announce that Honey comb is now in store!

 

Honey in the comb is pure, simple and its you to places liquid honey can’t.  It’s totally safe to eat and people have been doing so for thousands of years.  It’s fantastic over a bowl of oatmeal, slathered on a baguette with brie, finely chopped and topped on a salad with finely crumbled goat cheese or on your next charcuterie board.  It keeps forever and you can store it at room temperature.  Its good for you to. But best of all, it’s made from    he nectar of the lavender plants and wildflowers at Serenity Lavender Farm and tastes delicious.

Lavender Festival 2018 is here!!

Serenity Lavender is proud to host our 6th Annual Lavender Festival! This event was inspired by the beautiful aromas flavours and colours of lavender.  Mother Nature was not kind to our beautiful lavender plants this winter, with the freeze thaw cycles we suffered significant crop loss and plant damage, but with every hardship comes opportunity.  We took this opportunity to redesign our lavender gardens and to teach our customers how to assess plants for cold damage and how to prune plants.

This year the festival incorporates our recently opened hospitality facility and Bistro 42.  We’re offering activities for adults and children alike.

For adults there is a Tai Chi demonstration, Yoga class, Alcohol Ink class, Lavender Wand demonstration, Cooking demonstration, Lavender tours, Artists and Artisan alley, live music all day long, and of course artisanal crafted lavender culinary, bath and body products made with our farm grown lavender

We’re ready to entertain your children with whimsical storytelling and readings from local children’s authors, musical interludes, exploration of the lavender labyrinth, chalk art area, the magical wishing tree and if they’re lucky they may even witness the dance of the butterflies.

Come join us for a “Scentscational Experience”

 June 30th and July 1st

10 am – 5 pm

130 County Road 50 East Colchester

Free Admission

Food and beverages available for purchase throughout the day.

Reservations required for Bistro 42.

Save the date!! Lavender Festival 2018

Sometimes it’s best to brainstorm when you are far away from all the hustle and bustle of the daily routine of home an work.  Last year Serenity’s Lavender Festival exceeded all of our expectations.  The turnout was amazing, the weather was picture perfect but we did not yet have our new hospitality centre and so with a new building smack dab in the centre of our parking and vendor area, with  a full service restaurant open 7 days a week,  a brainstorming session was in order.  Over the next few months we’ll be rolling out the Festival activities.  A sprinkle of new with old making this an even better festival for all ages!

Lavender is, of course still  the star of the show and choosing a date can be a challenge not too early and not too late to miss the peak of bloom.  And then there are all the other wonderful festivals in Windsor Essex to keep in mind.  We’ve chosen June 30th and July 1st and we’re keeping our fingers crossed that mother nature is as kind to us as she was last year!  So pencil that date into your calendars and we hope to see you for another Scentscational Experience!!!
