Upon retiring from the corporate world, Janice and Keith purchased a small farm in Riner, VA and soon succumbed to the lure of Lavender. The farm started in 2008 with the concentration on Herbs and of course Lavender. Within the second to third year the concentration was centered on only Lavender. As the plantings grew, Janice applied her interest in the many wonderful benefits of Lavender and along with Keith’s background and knowledge of chemistry, they started to handcraft a line of Lavender based body care products, lotions, creams, sprays, soaps along with a variety of other beneficial products. The farm now includes over 18 varieties of both Angustifolia and Intermedia Lavenders including several culinary types. With amazing vistas, the farm includes a serene setting to walk through and enjoy the wonderful and relaxing fragrance of Lavender.
