Planted in 2021, the lavender field at Within You Farm features over 900 lavender plants across 5 cultivares. Grown with intention and enjoyed with gratitude in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania.
In the Spring, Lavender is pruned back and prepared for the growing season.
By the end of Spring, the days are getting longer and buds are beginning to form.
The lavender plants fill out and start to show their purple hue.
By the solstice, the field is alive with activity and enjoyed by all.
Into August lavender flowers are harvested by hand for fresh and dried bouquets, distilation, and culinary uses.
Lavender flowers are steam distilled in small batches into essential oil and hydrosol.
