'Yule Love It Lavender Farm'
Situated on the back roads and rolling hills
of Northeastern Oakland county, on three acres of land, is a lovely little place called 'Yule Love It lavender Farm' Here you can explore the farm, take a tour, attend a tea under the pergola, or shop in the on site gift shop. The farm offers craft and cooking classes, as well as an internship where you can learn all about lavender and farming. On this farm the motto is, "Relax, Learn, and Laugh."
What struck me most as I stepped out of my car was the beauty that was all around me. It was as though God had taken cans of paint and splattered slightly different shades of lavender in blotches all over the landscape. It was truly beautiful and being the amature photographer I am these pictures just don't capture what it was I actually saw.
The only down sides to my visit were that NO DOGS ARE ALLOWED and the day I happened to visit the farm the gift shop was closed. I had originally went out to the farm to pick up some lavender to use in my cooking after exploring the 'Yule Love It lavender Farm' site on line.
I have provide a link here just in case any of you would like to check out the site as well. It includes an line store, recipes, and some interesting information about the farm and about Iris who is the proprietor.
Luckily for me I have found lavender at another place I visited recently. My plan is to make scones and lavender tea sometime in the future. When I do I will post it here. I have never used lavender in cooking before so I am looking forward to a new experience.
I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend!
With warmest regards, Carol
