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.
Come for this fun and interactive workshop and learn how to prune, plant, harvest and care for your lavender plant. We’ll give you a hands on demonstration of how to prune, give you companion planting ideas and discuss the culinary uses for lavender too! Workshop fee includes a workbook and a lavender plant to give you joy for years to come!
Cost $25.00 +hst. Tickets available on Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/twilight-tour-learn-to-prune-grow-lavender-tickets-50014640135
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.
