From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We're a small sustainable and family run farm in Sherwood with a relaxed atmosphere. Come and pick six varieties of Lavender including culinary varieties in our field; bring a picnic and enjoy lunch at the picnic tables in the sun. U-Pickers are welcome to take lots of photographs.
What is the experience customers can expect?
We provide scissors and zip ties for you to cut your own bunches. U-Pick available until July 16 2016. Open days and times at www.sherwoodlavender.com. Please note we have limited shade so bring a sunhat and sunblock and comfortable shoes!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
After taking students to Provence for Aromatherapy Tours with ACHS.edu, we became addicted to lavender and set out to recreate a little patch of paradise on the mountain above Sherwood.
What do you love most about your job?
Lavender is a very sustainable plant - it needs no water once established and if treated correctly, isn't susceptible to insects or diseases. And it provides wonderful food for the bees! There is nothing like the aroma wafting over you on a hot day!
