Black & white floors mean only one thing.....Lavender Hill is now at Rainbow Gardens!


 We are toward the back in the "Soaps & Scents" section.
 On the right.....do you see it?

 Ta Da!  Our All-Natural, handmade, local lavender products.
We got our display done just in time to be part of their Open House yesterday. So now you can eat at the Greenery, shop and get a little Lavender Hill.
I will be restocking weekly because the display doesn't hold much.  So if there is something that has sold out, just come back and try again.  OR call me and I will bring extra and let you know the days I will be restocking.

Back to posting...winter is near.

 I haven't posted much this summer because things have been so busy.  We didn't do any markets this year, we had our place open for U-pick and tours.  Between wand classes, garden tours, 3 kids and keeping our gift shops stocked we didn't have much time for anything else.

My Dad finished the steps on Phase 4 and a few other rock projects.  The garden fence posts are in and ready for their cross sections.  The scrub oak trunks that we cleared from around the property make up the posts and beams, it is going to be really cute.
 We had quite the harvest.  The hot summer forced everything to bloom a bit early...right before Swiss Days.  So we had to harvest and prep for Swiss Days all at the same time. (pictures soon)
 We had Photographers out this year.  Because most of the major landscaping is done, we thought we would give it a try.  I'll put our photography contract on our blog this winter. 
We did private garden tours and we were open for u-pick.  3 times we had brides and her bridesmaids come out the morning of the weddings and pick lavender for their bouquets. They said it was the best way to start the day.

Now that the cold has come, I'll be inside more and have time to post.  I have so many wonderful pictures from this summer.

Stay tuned.

Lily On The Run

 Little Lily isn't so little anymore.  She loves being outside. The moment I open the front door, she is in the flowers. She keeps me on my toes more than her older brothers ever did. 
 She is into everything, you may even find a Cherrio in your gift bag. She likes to help behind the counter in the gift shop.
~
We will not be attending any markets this year, but we will be open for U-pick and classes by appointment.  Just give us a call and we will set a date. 801-745-2744


Visitors From Around The World.

Now that Lavender Hill is open for the summer we have had visitors from all around the world come and pick lavender.  

  American English Center
from Recife, Brazil
Mr. Wallace brings his students every year to Utah.  This year it was to visit Lavender Hill and see a "farm setting".  After our garden tour they went for a hayride at Bailey's and lunch at Huntsville BBQ. In my opinion it was a perfect line up for the day.

Being from the city they didn't want to leave, they loved the green and the mountains. The thing they loved the most was the carpet in my parents living room.

Directions to Lavender Hill - Eden, Utah

We are going to open Lavender Hill for U-Pick, 
classes and guests this year. Yay!  

If you have never been out to our place, you might need a map. Our physical address is:

Lavender Hill
2770 N. Nordic Valley Drive
Eden, Utah 84310
If you are using Google Maps use the below address.  For some reason (though we have asked them to fix it many times) our physical address does not locate properly.

Lavender Hill
2770 N. Nordic Valley Road
Eden, Utah 84310
And for some reason it works.  


For those of us without GPS, here are some directions with pictures.  You can print a map HERE. 

These directions will be coming from I-15 North or South.

On I-15 Head towards Ogden, Utah.
Take the 12th street exit and head East toward the mountains.

Staying on 12th Street you will cross the train tracks, Wall Ave., Washington Blvd., Harrison Blvd and head up Ogden Canyon 5.6 miles. 

Ogden Canyon
 Once in Ogden Canyon you will be headed toward the Wolf Mountain Ski Resort.
Traffic in Ogden Canyon
 There may be construction through the month of August, so be prepared.  It can be up to a 15 minute wait.
Pineview Dam
 After traveling 5.6 miles you will see Pineview Dam on the left. 
 Take a Left across the dam towards Eden, Liberty.
 Once across the dam, stay on the North side of the lake. 
 You will be headed toward Wolf Mountain.....NOT Wolf Creek.
 
The (only) road around the lake is SR 158 and will curve around the lake and come to this trail head and a major "Y" in the road. 

 At the "Y" stay to the Left and follow the sign and arrow to Liberty.
 SR 158 will come to a 4 Way stop. At this intersection you will see a Wells Fargo, Maverick gas station, The Valley Market and Pat's Place.
You will be taking a Left onto HWY 162. Travel 1.1 miles on Hwy 162.
 Staying on HWY 162 you will pass the Post Office and Snowcrest Jr. High School on the left.
 The LDS Church will be on your right.  This is a safe place to meet and consolidate your vehicles so you can carpool the rest of the way to Lavender Hill. 
After traveling 1.1 miles you might see this little camouflage sign on your right.  Watch for it because less than 100 feet away on your Left is the turn onto Nordic Valley Drive. I will put some balloons or a sign at this turn to be sure you won't miss it.

 Turn Left onto Nordic Valley Drive and follow it .8 miles up the hill.
 This is a blind corner so take it slow. There is no street parking because off to the right side of the road is a cliff and there is no shoulder on the left. 
 Immediately after the blind corner you will see our sign post on the Left.
 As soon as you come in the drive there is parking for 4 cars.  You are here!
Welcome to Lavender Hill!

The hammock is ready,
The lavender are about to bloom,

and our "Lavender Babies" are looking for homes.
Click HERE to view our calendar for the days we are open.  If you have a group and want to have a private class or tour just give us a call:  1-801-745-2744 and ask for Jackie.
U-Pick Fresh Bundles are $5.00.
Our gift shop will be open too.

Where Women Create Magazine - Lavender Hill

So the most recent COOL thing for us is the publication of the newest member to the Where Women Create Magazine Family.  
Its called Where Women Create Business!
 It was issued January 1st, 2013 and can be found at:
 JoAnn Fabrics, Michael's Craft, Barns & Noble and Costco.  (Cool, right?)
If you look on the front...it has our name! 
"On the farm with the Ladies of Lavender Hill"
(Cool, right?)
And if you open it up there is a 10 page article about
how we started our buisness.
There we are...so cool, right?  And at the same time a little weird. I was at Michael's buying some cupcake papers and was waiting at the register.  It was 8:00 at night and it had been a LONG day with the kids, we had been cleaning out closets all day.  I wasn't looking my best and I was ready for bed, when I turned and noticed less than 12" from me was this magazine.  And at that moment I hoped that no one recognized me or my debit card that said "Lavender Hill" right on the front.  Eeeeek.  I bought my cupcake papers and quietly slipped out of the store.  

Hey, but I guess that is what having 
a small buisness is all about right? 

Enjoy the read!
