October Newsletter - 10/1/2021



Hello Dear Lavender Loving Friends, And just like that it’s Fall Y’all!! While I’m always sad to see the last of the summer blooms go, I do love this time of year. I especially enjoy the cooler temps and watching how Mother Nature turns the green leaves into magnificent fall colors all around us. It reminds me that nothing is forever. Don't take anything or anyone for granted. We have an update on our upcoming events. Sadly, due to the ongoing pandemic the Sussex County Harvest Honey Garlic Festival has been cancelled. Therefore, we will in fact, be open on October 9. In addition, we will not be participating in the Celebrate Fall Event which means we will be open on October 17. Below are our upcoming events: Saturday, October 16 - CLOSED for Private Event Saturday, October 23 – Sweater Weather Savanana Yoga – With the ongoing threat of COVID and the Delta variant we made the decision to postpone the Farm To Table Dinner portion of this event. Additional details about the Yoga portion of this event will be available soon. Friday, November 5 – Autumn Equinox Rejuvenation Event. We are thrilled to welcome our dear friend Vibha Rana of Green Tulip Healthy & Wellness back to the farm. Vibha is offering half hour sessions of her amazing Ayurveda Foot Reflexology or Ayurveda Head Massage. These sessions always sell out so don’t wait to make your appointment. Sessions will take place under the pergola. However, in the event of rain, sessions will take place in the newly expanded and renovated Summer Kitchen aka The Little Cottage. Saturday, December 12 – We will be participating in the Reeves-Reed Arboretum Festival of Trees. Additional information will be available soon.

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we are offering a Handmade Artisan Quilt Wall Hanging. This beautiful quilt was lovingly made by our very own Wendy as a way of supporting our daughter Raquel. As some of you may already be aware, Raquel was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer back in March. This beautiful work of art measures 38” x 38”, includes the hanging rod and is on display in our shop. Tickets are $10 each or 3 for $25. All donations will go directly to Raquel to help offset her medical expenses. The drawing will take place on Sunday, October 31, which happens to be Raquel’s favorite holiday.

For those of you who are not able to make it to the shop but would like to show their support, here is the link to Raquel’s Go Fund Me page. Prayers are humbly requested and greatly appreciated.

I normally prefer to keep my personal life separate from my business life. However, as a breast cancer survivor myself, I felt it is important to share our story in the hope that it will motivate you or your loved ones to get checked. For those of you who think you are too young to get breast cancer listen up!! I was diagnosed at age 42. My daughter was diagnosed at age 32. And, by the way, men can also get breast cancer. Consider this your Call to Action!! Make an appointment to get your mammogram and don’t forget to do self-exams!! It could save your life.

 

As a reminder, Face Masks, covering nose and mouth, are still REQUIRED in the shop regardless of vaccination status. Face Masks may be removed while outside. Please stay home if you’re not feeling well. We reserve the right to limit the number of visitors on the property and in the Shop at any given time to ensure everyone’s safety.

Our hours are Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays from 10 am – 5 pm – except when closed for private events. Special hours are always posted on our website, scial media and voice mail greeting. We ask that you PLEASE respect these hours.

 

We truly appreciate your continued support and we look forward to seeing you soon.

With Love and Gratitude,

Monica & Jim
