Naturally Produced Lavender, Sheep, and Families
We moved onto our farm in order to grow our family in a natural setting. We wanted our children to have room to roam free and play in wide open spaces. Country Garden Farm has emerged naturally as a byproduct of this commitment to nourish our family and provide a way to sow back into our community at large.
Our real farming adventure began with a 4-H project involving sheep. After our daughter’s third year raising lambs, she decided she wanted to keep some for breeding. Our flock started with a few ewes, then we added a ram, and now we have a yearly influx of lambs every spring.
Several years later, we jumped in with both feet and purchased a lavender business. We harvest our lavender by hand, hang it to dry in our barn, and use the lavender essential oil we distill in our workshop to create our soothing Country Garden Farm lavender products.
