The story of Terre Bleu lavender farm, apiary and horse stables began in 2011, with the planting of our first 10,000 lavender plants in 2012. Our inspiration began years earlier while vacationing in Quebec. Visiting a lavender farm, we were immediately awed by the spectacular fields of purple and the perfumed air that swirled all around us. Inspired, we then spent years reasearching and learning all we could about lavender. Today Terre Bleu is an organic working family farm, we are not a botanical garden. We grow eight varieties of lavender and as such the state of the blooms vary continuously. Like any other farmed crop we experience crop damage and losses due to extreme weather conditions. We also harvest the beautiful blooms at peak times to be able to make our very best handmade lavender products, so please set your expectations accordingly.
Now in our fifth year, our first crop of plants have reached maturity, however not ones to standstill, we planted another 15,000 plants in 2015 and 12,000 in 2016 making us the largest lavender farm in Ontario. Our plans for the farm continue to evolve with addition of a large new farm store and gallery in 2015 and new ideas for the years ahead. Over the years we have added many new features to the farm to make for a unique agro-tourism experience. Elements include: outdoor yoga area, unique farm store; essential oil distillery; honey house; great new products, and an equestrian demonstration ring. Stay tuned as we continue to build on our vision.
We hope you enjoy watching us grow and will regularly check here to see what’s happening on the farm, and to see how we use the farm to do good things in the broader community.
