The Colour Purple!

Posted on August 8, 2011 at 2:30 PM

What a lovely weekend! I've always thought purple was the greatest colour and it's my birthstone too but until a recent trip to a lavender farm I had no idea just how much it makes you feel great!  No wonder it's a royal colour!

Miranda and I visited Pelindaba's Organic Lavender Farm on San Juan's Friday Harbour...in a word, spectacular!  Pelindaba is a Certified Organic farm that produces over 250 products with their many varieties of Lavender.  We use their Lavender for our Sachets and in our teas and lotions.  Once you've experienced Lavender in it's purest freshest form it will change your mind about that old fashioned smelly stuff in the bottles from a very long time ago.  The people at Pelindaba are terrific too! Jessica in the farm store was so helpful and informative...made us feel very welcomed.  Jessica introduced us to owner Stephen and we chatted for a bit on retail.  We learned so much about harvest, production and the plants themselves which in turn we were able to pass on to our customers at the Market in White Rock on Sunday.    Their Chocolate Lavender Ice Cream Sandwich was ridiculously huge but of course we loved every bite!  Then, to further our sensory experience, we went to their downtown store and met Elizabeth.  It's common knowledge we Canadians are a friendly bunch but I'm quickly learning that's not always the case.  Elizabeth should give lessons on customer service because she's got it down. Gracious, friendly and so enthusiastic for her customers and her craft we were again inspired.  We'll be back!

As for our terrific Sunday Markets, we can't wait to put all our new ideas and products into action: Lavender Hydrosol and Sugared Lavender buds and more...but no chocoloate ice cream! We'll leave that to the experts at Pelindaba!  Enjoy a super summer! Laura and Miranda
