Our two hundred lavender plants consist of Munstead, Grosso, Hidcote and Phenomenal. The lavender is harvested mid-summer, and we produce numerous products that include the lavender essential oil and hydrosol. Lavender plants are available in the spring.

We just finished putting the lavender plants to bed for the winter. We gently covered each one with pine needles for that added bit of insulation. Last summer was a great year for the lavender harvest. We have quite a bit of culinary lavender stored away and we also distill essential lavender oil and hydrosol.
Winter in Polson is the perfect time to stay inside and make soap! I started making cold process soaps last year, when I discovered that the glycerine content in home made soap is much higher than what you get in commercially made soaps, plus soap is just fun to make!
