Lavender is not only beautiful and sensory, it is a practical choice for your garden. Lavender is non-palatable to deer, drought tolerant, easy to grow and manage.
Before deciding to become lavender farmers, John and Sharon spent time researching, investigating and reading extensively about lavender. June 2018, Wilton Family Lavender Farm had its first test plants prepared and planted. Showcasing 12 varieties of Lavender. All the varieties chosen for their beauty, hardiness, oil, scent and color.
A well loved Mediterranean Herb, Lavender has been associated with cleanliness since Romans first added it to their bathwater. The name comes from the Latin word Lavanders, meaning to wash. Essential oil of lavender is now known to have many applications in aromatherapy.
Today lavender remains a favorite for scenting clothing, closets, soaps and even furniture polish. Lavender was traditionally inhaled to ease exhaustion, insomnia, irritability and depression. In the Victorian era, women revived themselves with lavender filled swooning pillows.
The calming, fresh, unique fragrance of lavender is available in potpourris, buds, oils, handmade soap, lotions, lip balm, hydro-mists, wreaths and much more in our marketplace.
