Welcome to the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire A new year brings many changes and challenges to Sequim lavender farming. With our new name and association comes a return to the original core principles and values which made Sequim lavender famous throughout the world. Our member farmers are proud and passionate about what we do, shepherding and coaxing our lavender plants to reach their full and exquisite potential. As you tour our farms, enjoy the sights, RAGSDALE scents and sounds of what is Sequim lavender. The blooms and scents you see and experience today soon will be harvested, distilled or processed into products produced by each of the farmers. In the world of lavender farming, we are truly special as each farm individually develops and produces its own products. You can rest assured that Sequim lavender plants and products produced and sold by our member farms are of the highest quality and purity possible. Enjoy the Faire and all that is Sequim lavender. The farmers thank you.

Steve Ragsdale President, Sequim Lavender Farmers Association

Wow!

I hope you are as impressed as we are with the abundance of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley! There have been so many changes this year, we want to do everything possible to make sure that your visit to the lavender events are relaxed and enjoyable … but we don’t want you to miss any of the magical and fun parts of this NAGEL great celebration of lavender. First, you’ll notice a stunning new venue for our “Lavender in the Park” celebration — Carrie Blake Park/Reuse Demonstration Park. It is here you will find many of the wonderful crafts, foods, family activities, music, and of course, lavender products that you could possibly want. But you know what is really amazing? This central event is only part of this one-of-a-kind celebration because the heart of this weekend is the world-class lavender farms and each one is a festival as well! With your lavender “passport” and button, you can take tour buses or bike or drive to the stunning founding farms that started this movement here in the Northwest. And then there are our community programs during the day and at night, including downtown Sequim where the Lavender Faire Garden Bistro party takes place every day and Jazz in the Alley on Saturday night. If I sound a little excited, it’s because I am. I have been involved in celebrating lavender for eight years in Sequim and this is the most exciting and diverse celebration I have ever had the privilege to work for. Come play and share the joy with us. I guarantee you won’t be bored!

Today, the Sequim Lavender Farmers Association grows and supports the production of premium quality lavender on family owned farms. These dedicated farmers are working toward a common goal of preserving and promoting lavender in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley and making Sequim the worldwide destination for lavender lovers.

CEDARBROOK LAVENDER & HERB FARM Tucked away at the base of Bell Hill, Cedarbrook Lavender & Herb Farm is sheltered from the harsh reality of Mother Nature. The farm — the first and oldest herb farm in the state — gets a little more sunshine and a lot less rain than the rest of the town, swears owners Marcella and Gary Stachurski. As a result, the beautiful rows of lavender remain mostly intact even after an exceptionally wet and cold spring. While some farms experienced some plant loss, Cedarbrook Lavender & Herb Farm reported only 10-15 dead plants. “We were very fortunate,” Marcella said, crossing her fingers and counting her blessings. For the seventh summer in a row, the couple welcomes visitors to the 8.5-acre farm to share the joy of lavender. The grounds house more than 100 varieties of lavender in purple, pink and white blooms. The historical Bell House Gift Shop is decorated with a French-country theme. When guests walk into the old farmhouse, their eyes are met with soft, earthy purple and green tones and their nostrils are filled with the unique, calming fragrance of lavender. The 1,200-square-foot home is filled with reclaimed items, such as a rustic sink found in the middle of a freshly plowed field on the farm and an old Maytag washing machine. Taking a special interest in recycled and antique items, the farm is celebrating the summer “faire” with a special vintage theme this year. “It’s something we’ve always had going on at the farm but are finally emSE QUI M LAVE NDE R FAR M FAIR E 2 0 1 1

Embracing their historical roots

phasizing,” Marcella said. “We’re hoping to draw an even larger and eclectic crowd than usual.” Cedarbrook Lavender & Herb Farm will have a vintage market — similar to the Ruffles and Rough show they participated at in the downtown Snohomish area last

February — and host a booth with rusty old farm implements and tools, antique chairs and classic linens for sale. Other more traditional vendors will include a jewelry maker, massage therapist, fiber artist, fused glass artist, watercolorist, beekeeper and more. Highlighted demonstrations this year involve wand making, children’s story time and a “Meet the Farmer” session. In March, the Stachurskis listed the farm for sale. They’re hoping to downsize by selling four out of five of the lots and keeping the vacation rentals and four acres of lavender fields. The Cedarbrook Lavender & Herb Farm name and business isn’t included in the sale. “It’s just too much for the two of us to do,” Marcella explained. “Our Realtor is pretty confident that something will

sell by August given the market and what the other farms have done and that pleases us.” If the farm sells, including the historical Bell House Gift Shop and the building being used as the Garden Cafe, the Stachurskis will take a year off from being on tour while they build a new, smaller gift shop on the remaining parcel and develop a revised business plan. They’ll stay involved with the lavender farmers association and have no plans to leave the area, Marcella assured. If the farm doesn’t sell, the couple plans to continue running it as usual and replace the current U-pick field with new plants. As the busy season approaches, there’s not much time to think about the “what if’s” though, Marcella said. They’re simply too busy pulling weeds, stocking up on inventory and preparing for the “faire.” “I’m ready for some nice weather and getting to our peak season,” Marcella said. “We like having people visit the farm and love this time of year.” With all the work that needs to be done, Marcella said she’s grateful for the help of good friends and loving family. “Thank you everybody who has helped us all these years,” Marcella said appreciatively. “Without you it wouldn’t have all happened.” Cedarbrook Lavender & Herb Farm and Cedarbrook Garden Café are located at 1345 S. Sequim Ave. For more information, call the gift shop at 360-683-7733, the café at 360-683-4541 or go online to www.cedarbrooklavender.com. See Cedarbrook Farm activities on page 56. 17

OLYMPIC LAVENDER The past few years have had their ups and downs for Mary Borland-Liebsch. In 2009, her husband of 37 years, business partner, soul mate and best friend Steve Borland died after a 14-month battle with a brain tumor. Despite the tragedy, Borland-Liebsch honored her late husband’s wishes and participated in the annual lavender Farm Faire, turning to her friends, family and the memory of her husband for support. One week after the 2009 Farm Faire, a friend introduced the widow to Bruce Liebsch at the Sequim Aquatic Recreation Center. Despite her initial resistance, she was pleasantly surprised to find she had a lot in common with Liebsch, whose wife of 43 years died after a battle with breast cancer just one month before Steve Borland. The two started spending time as friends and fell in love almost immediately. At Christmas, they announced their engagement and married Feb. 13, 2010. Now that the honeymoon phase has worn off, the couple has entered the “boring” phase, Borland-Liebsch said jokingly, and that’s just fine by both of them. Not one to stand on the sidelines, Liebsch dug out his gardening gloves and started learning the ways of lavender farming immediately. He discovered quickly that he really enjoys mowing the large farm. He discovered even quicker that he doesn’t much care for weeding between the 4,000 plants and multiple buildings. “It was interesting to be right in the

middle of it for the first time, that’s for sure,” Liebsch said about the 2010 Farm Faire. “I met people from all over and some had never even seen lavender before!” Now, Liebsch is excited to experience his second season during the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire.

In honor of their late husband and wife, all the proceeds from the U-pick field during the three-day extravaganza will be donated to the Olympic Medical Cancer Center. Last year, more than $2,000 was donated. The money specifically benefits the Patient Navigator Program, providing financial assistance in the form of meals, lodging and travel expenses for cancer patients. Olympic Lavender Farm is known for its emphasis on different types of lavender plants. The farm features 15 different planted varieties and even more in the store. Most people are surprised to learn

Interview by ASHLEY MILLER

that lavender comes in different colors, including pink and white, Borland-Liebsch said, and that each breed has a slightly different scent. Different varieties of lavender have specific uses. Provence has long stems and is good for making wands. Vera has a distinctly sweet scent. Dutch Mill is tall and hedge-like. Royal Velvet is dark and sweet smelling. Gross is popular for making wands, sachets and bundles. Fred Boutin is great for landscaping. Hidcote is used for cooking. Jean Davis has light pink flowers. Martha Roderick is a spicy favorite. Nana Alba is white and spicy. The list goes on and on. Borland-Liebsch will discuss the different varieties and uses of lavender during several talks throughout the three-day faire. At the end of the season, the couple plans to list the farm for sale. “I’ve been doing this for 16 wonderful and amazing years,” BorlandLiebsch said. “It’s time to move on.” If the farm doesn’t sell right away, they are OK with that, Liebsch said, and they will continue to operate the farm and participate in the faire. “We aren’t unhappy doing what we’re doing; we’re just ready for a change,” he said. If it does sell, the couple plans to stay in Sequim and enjoy retirement. Olympic Lavender Farm is at 1432 Marine Drive. For more information, go online to www.olympiclavender.com or call 360-681-3388. See Olympic Lavender Farm activities on page 58.

The lavender plant is a member of the mint family, specifically the Lamiaceae family, the genus containing 25-30 species of flowering plants, one of them being lavenders Lavandula. The other common names for this herb are common lavender, English lavender, French lavender, nder, Garden lavender, Lavandula angustifolia, Lavandula latifolia and Lavandula officinalis. The genus includes enus in ncludess herbaceous plants, sub-shrubs and small shrubs. S E Q UI M LAV E N D E R FA RM FA IRE 2011

PORT WILLIAMS LAVENDER FARM After a one year absence from everything lavender, Sue and Michael Shirkey are back in the purple. “We are up and running madly just like before,” Sue Shirkey said with an animated grin. Port Williams Lavender farm, 1442 Port Williams Road, was closed for business and skipped the annual Farm Faire during 2010 while Sue underwent and recovered from foot surgery. Now that she’s back on her feet, Sue is more eager than ever to get the farm in tip-top shape to share with visitors. Her renewed enthusiasm is good since the combination of taking a year off and a harsh spring hit the farm hard. With a beautiful and bountiful crop of lavender in previous years, the Shirkeys simply weren’t prepared for the loss of lavender plants due to an unusually cold and wet spring. What initially may have seemed like a disaster, however, has ended up being a good thing, according to Sue. “We have been talking about rotating our crops, creating a new U-pick area for our visitors and bringing in new varieties to expand the lavenders that we have available,” she said. “Previous years, it just seemed like more work than we were ready to tackle but with a little help from Mother Nature this year, we’re getting the opportunity to try out some new, exciting and creative ideas.” Like any farmers, the Shirkeys know that some things — weather included — are out of their control. Instead of dwelling on what has happened, the couple remains focused on all that they have and can share. “We are doing our best to present the beautiful and fragrant lavender farm that people know and love,” Sue said. “It’s just so beautiful here with the rolling farmland all around and we enjoy sharing our corner of the Sequim Prairie.” Surrounded by acres of farm fields, deer and elk are frequent guests at the Port Williams farm as well as eagles soaring overhead.

Better than ever: Port Williams Lavender farm rejoins festivities

During the three-day Farm Faire, visitors can expect live entertainment, vendors, arts and crafts, demonstrations on oil distillation — by none other than Michael Shirkey himself — and much more. Bella Italia restaurant will cater the event, well-known for its lavender sausages, and the farm will serve its amazing lavender ice creams. Back by popular demand is the “hearts

and therapy” session where participants can make lavender wreathes in the shape of hearts. “It’s a hoot, the ladies in particular love it,” Sue said, speaking from personal experience. “We get mothers and daughters, aunt and grandmas, friends and complete strangers all sitting at the tables and on the ground laughing and having fun.” Local musicians Crag Buhler with his jazz dream band and Denny Secord Jr. with Haywire are on the entertainment schedule. On the arts and craft front, people can look forward to a variety of activities for

children including rock painting and a treasure hunt. Jennifer Duncan-Taylor will be on hand demonstrating her pottery making and Lou Dawn Bunker will be teaching the art of tatting, a type of lace making, with those who would like to stop by her vendor booth. A number of repeat vendors will offer a wonderful variety of arts and crafts for visitors. In an interesting turn of events, Sue will be hosting “Meet the Farmer” this year instead of Michael. The Shirkeys purchased the Port Williams farm in 2000. Sue had just retired from her position in accounting with Horizon Air and Michael was working as an engineer at Boeing, which he continues to do. They both enjoyed farming and decided to look for property with about five acres for retirement. After purchasing nine acres in Sequim, the couple decided they wanted to do something with it so they planted a few lavender plants. Then, they planted a few more. Before long, they joined the lavender association. “There was no marketing plan or anything, we were just playing,” Sue admitted. “We’re still just playing. We do what we do because we love digging in the dirt and talking to people.” As they continue to create their farm, the Shirkeys have added a small greenhouse to propagate small amounts of lavender and are in the process of completing a blueberry patch. From lotions and potions to sachets and embroidered dish towels, the Shirkeys make most of their own products, relying on the help of friends and family. To check out the new face of Port Williams Lavender Farm, stop by the farm during the Farm Faire or between the hours of 10 a.m.-5 p.m. the rest of the summer, seven days a week.

PURPLE HAZE LAVENDER FARM If it’s not broken don’t fix it — that’s the motto Mike Reichner has developed over the years. So far, the laissez-faire attitude has suited him well. Which is exactly why when people ask him, “What’s new at Purple Haze Lavender Farm?” he replies with, “Absolutely nothing!” In actuality, that’s not entirely true. Reichner and his wife, Rosalind, are excited to show off the farm’s new covered distilling station during the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire. When Purple Haze first opened 16 years ago the distiller on site was a mere five gallons. After all, gardening was more of a hobby and the “farm” consisted of fewer than 20 lavender plants. A few years later, the farm continued to expand and the couple updated to a 60-gallon machine. Now, visible upon driving up to the farm, a 400-gallon distiller produces 1.2 million BTUs and is a popular attraction. For the first time since purchasing the industrial distiller four years ago, visitors will be able to observe the process comfortably rain or shine. “It draws a big crowd,” Reichner said about the distiller in action. “The ground rumbles when it’s going.” Other than the new covered shed, not much has changed. “If you liked what you saw during a previous year, you’ll probably see it here again,” Reichner said. Typically, the farm hosts about 25 vendors and artisans, most of which are “repeats.” Also on the schedule are six or seven bands, including the fan

Destination Purple Haze - more than just a stop on the map favorite Geoffrey Castle, famous lavender margaritas and cosmopolitans, seven flavors of ice cream, daily distillation demonstrations and food by Oven Spoonful and the Bushwhacker Restaurant. On more than one occasion, Purple Haze has been described as a “destination,” not just a stop on the map. “People have actually told us that they intended to visit all the farms but came

here first and stayed the whole time,” Reichner said with a chuckle, straightening his baseball cap that reads “Real men wear lavender.” “We create an experience for folks to remember for years and to tell their friends and family about.” In recent years, the 12.5 acre purpletinted farm has become a No. 1 spot for weddings, increasing from one or two a year to double digits. “Rosalind and I are people persons but we can’t take all of the credit,” Reichner said fairly. “Our staff is amazingly loyal, hardworking, dedicated and honest.” Most of the current employees have been

on board for a minimum of eight years, some longer. Everybody at the farm is instructed to reach out to guests and provide a pleasant Purple Haze experience while also sharing information about all the wonderful resources available on the peninsula. Reichner, a retired state park ranger, was promoted to Sequim Bay Park in 1985. Though the couple winters in Mexico for six months out of the year, they consider themselves Sequimites and have no plans of ever permanently leaving the area, Reichner said. Surrounded by rolling hills, ponds, orchards, peacocks and thousands of lavender plants, Reichner describes the “Purple Haze experience” as unforgettable. Also on the property is a three-bedroom, two-bathroom farmhouse vacation rental. In 2001, the certified organic farm expanded with a retail store downtown Sequim. The store is open year-round and ships Internet orders worldwide. The farm staff harvests the lavender by hand, distills it into oils, hangs it to dry in bundles and then prepares it for retail sale in the form of culinary goods, perfumes, soaps and more. Purple Haze Lavender Farm and gift shop is located on the east side of Sequim at 180 Bell Bottom Road. For more information, go online to www.purplehaze lavender.com or call 360-582-1131. The downtown store, 127 W. Washington St., is open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. MondayFriday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and noon-4 p.m. Sunday. See Purple Haze Lavender Farm activities on page 61.

Lavender is most beneficial for the traveling pet. Many dogs and cats dislike car travel and become anxious or sick. Put a lavender sachet, loose lavender bud, or several drops of lavender essential oil (augustifolia) in the car, under the seat or on your pet’s bedding. The natural calming properties of lavender will not only relax a nervous pet but also will calm an upset stomach.

SUNSHINE HERB & LAVENDER FARM Driving into Sequim from the east passersby can see a large red barn with white trim, a white picket fence and rows of carefully manicured lavender plants on the outskirts of town. The 10-acre farm — with 65 varieties and more than 8,000 plants — houses a gift shop, espresso stand, ice cream shop and more than 900 natural products including aroma therapy, soaps, culinary and handmade items for the home, individual and pets. Owners Steve and Carmen Ragsdale opened Sunshine Herb & Lavender Farm 11 years ago and have been on tours for the past six consecutive years. The couple started growing lavender on a 1-acre garden plot at their home in Kitsap County 16 years ago. When they outgrew that space, they started looking for land in the SequimDungeness Valley. Carmen has a background in cosmetology and a keen interest in cooking that helps her develop new products. Steve retired three years ago from his naval architecture job for the federal government but swears he’s busier now than ever before. The newest additions to the farm include two miniature Southdown sheep, a rare breed that originated in England and stand only 18-22 inches tall. Sir Royal Velvet and Thumbelina Leigh are named after lavender varieties and proved to be a main attraction last year. The Ragsdales intend to breed the pair and hope to welcome babies to the farm next spring. The couple also is in the process of expanding the greenhouse to include a second, larger structure for propagation. “We have so many varieties that one greenhouse just can’t contain everySE QUI M LAVE NDE R FAR M FAIR E 2 0 1 1

thing,” Carmen said. Starting this year, it will become a Sunshine Herb & Lavender Farm policy to replace aged lavender plants with new ones. “This is a working farm,” Steve explained. “Lavender plants have an average lifespan of about 12-15 years on a farm, so we plan to replace ours every

8-10 years to promote a high yield.” All of the farm’s products are manufactured from lavender grown and processed on site. Carmen has multiple published cookbooks with recipes she’s been gathering, creating and sharing for years. During the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire, the farm will feature antique tractors and cars. Other events include culinary demonstrations all three days, Dr. Crystal Tack discussing the benefits of lavender and its amazing everyday uses, beekeeping with Maya Bewig, rock painting, jewelry making, Lavender University seminars on how to care for lavender and a chance to “Meet the Farmers.”

Entertainment will include a variety of bands performing live traditional Hawaiian, country and three piece swing music. Food-wise, Sunshine Herb & Lavender Farm will cater the event themselves offering lavender ice cream, espressos, mochas, smoothies and more with all the main dishes’ sauces and rubs made on the farm by Carmen herself. As the countdown until the Sequim Lavender Faire continues, Carmen finds it increasingly hard to sleep at night. A combination of excitement and anxiety keeps her busy weeding, creating more products and preparing for the three-day extravaganza. But even after the fair, the Ragsdales have a busy summer ahead of them filled with lavender and visitors from all over the world. “The love of the farm keeps us going,” Carmen said. “We love what we do.” Steve describes life on the farm as a choice; a decision to play hard and work even harder. “We know we won’t make a million dollars doing this but we are having fun,” he said. “We’d rather wear out then rust out.” When things get tough, the couple simply close their eyes and take a deep breath, inhaling the calming scent of lavender. “We use the lavender oil to stay well lubricated,” Carmen joked, “like nicely running machines.” Sunshine Herb & Lavender Farm is at 274154 Highway 101.

GEORGE WASHINGTON INN & LAVENDER FARM If you’ve been waiting for an invitation to explore the George Washington Inn, now is the time. The bold and beautiful waterfront inn is one of six farms on tour during the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire this year. More than 2,000 lavender plants are planted in multiple fields and line the 1,200-foot driveway on each side. The contrast between the dark purple plants and the snow-white structure is breathtaking, not to mention the Strait of Juan de Fuca peeking out at guests from behind the inn. Owners Dan and Janet Abbott encourage guests to stop by the farm during the threed a y Fa r m Fa i re and to bring their friends, too. The Abbotts relocated from South Carolina to build and manage the Mount Vernon-inspired inn. They purchased the initial five acres in 2002 after reading an article in the Wall Street Journal about Sequim and later bought an additional five acres to open the bed and breakfast. While the floor plan is not an exact replica of the founding father’s home, the exterior is almost identical. The only really obvious differences are an enclosed veranda on the north side and the front portico with pillars. The main floor of the home serves as common areas for the guests and also houses one guest suite — Martha’s Suite. The upstairs contains the other four guest suites: the Presidential and General’s Suites and the Surveyor’s and Mount Vernon Retreats. Dan Abbott continues to split his time between Sequim and the East Coast and 32

will do so for the next six years. His goal is to retire from his job as a financial advisor after the inn becomes successful and profitable enough to support itself and the family. The Finn Hall Road property has a unique history of its own. A man-made

ditch in the ground not far from the inn once served as a machine gun nest during World War II to guard against the Japanese, according to neighbor John Jarvis, a Sequim resident since 1931. When people ask Dan Abbott, “Why lavender?” he responds with “Why not?” “Lavender is the most versatile herb out there, used for its anesthetic, aromatic and culinary properties,” he said. “There are so many ways to develop the product.” Once the inn was up and running, Abbott experimented with planting different berries and fruit trees, but it was lavender that thrived in Sequim’s unique climate. The couple joined the Sequim Lavender Farmers Association and come springtime, it was time to jump in full-scale. As the “faire” approaches, Dan Abbott admits to a crippling sense of “fear and trepidation.” Fellow farm owners have

warned him that the stress is like none other. Despite their anxiety about being “new kids on the block,” the Abbotts are excited to share the inn and lavender with the community and tourists. “When we bought the property nine years ago it was just a worn-out hay field,” Janet Abbott said. “We never set out to do this originally, it just evolved and it’s amazing.” The inn has a small lavender gift shop that will be open year-round. The couple also decided to close in the three-car garage off the carriage house and transform it into a larger, seasonal gift store. To start with, products will include lavender basics such as soaps, lotions, bath salts, candles, teas, spices, essential oils, sachets and eye pillows — all marked with the “Martha’s Own” label. “We will have a broad variety of products but maybe not in as many scents as some of the other farms,” Janet Abbott said. Like so many successful couples, Dan and Janet Abbott balance each other. He’s the “visionary” of the relationship and she’s the “one who makes it work.” As they walk the property examining the plants, they hold hands and smile at each other, admiring all they’ve accomplished together.

Long ago, lavender was associated with distrust because it was said that asps made their nests in or near lavender plants, so the plants could not be trusted as safe. This belief also drove the price of lavender up, since those who harvested it were considered risk-takers for their

willingness to brave the snake population. Sometimes referred to as “the good witches herb” lavender is said to avert the evil eye. Evil spirits quake at the scent of lavender, so it is considered to provide protection.

OFF-TOUR LAVENDER FARMS EVERY BIT A PART OF LAVENDER FAIRE While six lavender farms are on tour, four additional farms that are members of the Sequim Lavender Farmers Association, but not on the tour, are vital to the importance and success of the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire. Angel Farm, Moosedreams Lavender Farms and Victor’s Lavender will have a presence at the all-new Lavender in the Park, each offering a variety of plants and products. The fourth farm, Willow Farm/The Weary Gardiner, although a member of SLFA, will not participate in this year’s Faire.

Moosedreams Lavender Farms When Elizabeth Norris rescued Wolfie, a Labrador retriever mix, more than 10 years ago, the relationship turned out to be part of the catalyst for Full Moon Dog pet products made at Moosedreams Lavender Farms in Port Angeles.

Angel Farm Four years ago, Cathy and Leeon Angel decided to take their lavender farm off the tour portion of the annual lavender festival. That’s not to say the couple slipped into oblivion. Quite the contrary. They continue to work the farm’s fields on Old Olympic Highway, produce lavender and sell their products, both locally and, with partner The Weary Gardener, at their year-round All Things Lavender store at Seattle’s Pike Place Market. Not opening the farm for the tour doesn’t mean Cathy and Leeon are resting on their laurels, either. Now in their 11th year farming on the North Olympic Peninsula, the Angels have added a new crop — goldenseal, a medicinal herb. “Everyone who drives by wants to know what it is,” Cathy said of the fields of plants growing under shade cloth. Growing goldenseal is labor intensive. The crop takes four years to mature and after harvest, is sold and shipped in root form. The Angels moved from Issaquah in 1994. They purchased a farm off Blue Mountain Road where they raised llamas. Raising animals, Cathy said, tied the couple down too much, so they moved to the historical farm with amazing soil on Old Olympic and “got interested in lavender.” The rest, as they say, is history. For several years, Angel Farms was a popular destination during the annual lavender festivals. But, Cathy said, she and Leeon are excited about this year’s Lavender Farm Faire, and especially Lavender in the Park, a new venue featuring food, fun, crafting vendors and of course, lavender, at Carrie Blake Park. “It’s a lovely, green, open nice space,” she said. Offering a full range of lavender and culinary products, including their popular vintage linen pillows filled with lavender, Cathy and Leeon will create a “slice of Angel Farm in the park.” For more information, contact the Angels at angelfarm@wavecable.com. 36

creams, shampoo and candles will be available for purchase. All of Moosedreams bath and body products are goat milk-based. Goat milk has been used for thousands of years because of its skin softening properties and products derived from it continue to be among of the farm’s top sellers. Moosedreams products are made on site with ingredients that are vegetable-based, pesticide- and herbicide-free and never tested on animals, according to Norris and Landbeck. A constant goal at the farm is to become 100 percent green in product, packaging and bottling. A portion of the profits from Moosedreams animal products is donated to animal welfare and rescue organizations. A couple of years ago Dr. Michael W. Fox, world-renowned veterinarian and columnist, contacted Norris and Landbeck seeking products for a “green” catalog he was comprising. “We sent him samples of our formulas and the use of lavender in our dog products and he chose them to be in the catalog,” Norris said. Wolfie would have been proud, don’t you think? For more information or to make a purchase online, visit www.moosedreamslavender.com

Victor’s Lavender

It was a match made in, well, dog heaven. Not only was Wolfie one lucky dog — his previous owner apparently had shot the dog in the leg — but the lavender-based pet products have been a best seller for Norris and Barbara Landbeck, owners of Moosedreams Lavender Farms. Moosedreams has been making pet products under the Full Moon Dog line for more than 10 years and wholesale them to pet supply stores in the Puget Sound area. Their full line of pet products includes dog shampoo, conditioner, flea powder, the coat mist and for the kitties, a catnip pillow and catnip spray. “Lavender has been used for thousands of years for its healing properties, is a natural antibiotic and is especially effective on burns, stings, headaches and insomnia,” Norris explained. Moosedreams will offer its full line of Full Moon Dog pet products at its booth at Lavender in the Park during the Lavender Farm Faire. And for humans, everything from lavender soaps,

If you ask Victor Gonzales why, for the past 15 years he has been growing and propagating lavender, his answer is “That is a good question.” In fact, he admits to knowing next to nothing about lavender before he moved from California to Sequim in 1996. “Although I had never grown lavender before moving to Sequim, my family farmed so I grew up learning about different soils and farming practices,” Victor says. It was his lifelong background in farming that gave Victor the knowledge to develop growing practices that have allowed his lavender plants to thrive. Now, Gonzales not only grows nearly 100 varieties of lavender at his Sequim farm, but his advice for successful plants is sought out by lavender growers throughout the United States and indeed, worldwide. This September, Gonzales will travel to Africa to present a series of workshops regarding the propagation of lavender plants. When it comes to propagating lavender, Gonzales is considered the North Olympic Peninsula’s resident expert. He is a wholesale lavender grower and supplier, and has successfully S E Q UI M LAV E N D E R FA RM FA IRE 2011

will be at Lavender in the Park and give daily presentations at Purple Haze Lavender Farm regarding propagation and planting lavender. This is a busy time for lavender farmers, including Gonzales. It’s a 24-hour-a day process, he admits. But, to elaborate on the question, why does he grow lavender, Gonzales says he enjoys the process of propagating and cultivating lavender and helping people select plants

plants. He has been key for helping Sequim become so well known for its lavender. Gonzales’ farm is quite different from most of the lavender farms on the peninsula. There is no distillation of oil or production of lavender products. Instead, it’s all about the plants. Or, as Victor puts it, “My whole focus is plants.” He truly cares about his customers and what they want. He compares his consulting services to a personalized eight-hour workshop. “It’s not for people who just have a few questions,” he says. “When I go into a consulting session, I literally start from the ground up to find ways to make their lavender and busi- Above: A gift set from the ness healthier.” Weary Gardener.

Willow Farm/The Weary Gardener According to owners Lillian and Doug Gimmestad, Willow Farm is one of the pioneer farms of the Sequim lavender movement, having planted their first plants in 1994-1995. As the story goes, in 1998 Lillian turned 50 and renewed her quest to be more conscientious about being healthy. She decided to develop a line of body care products using the finest natural ingredients — pure vegetable and fruit oils, herbs and flowers, beeswax and pure essential and fragrance oils. No animal products. All Things Lavender, in Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market has been serving the Seattle community for seven years. The shop is the partnership of Angel Farm and The Weary Gardener and brings premier lavender and lavender products from Sequim. The farm is open by appointment only.

dedicated farmers are working toward a common goal of preserving and promoting lavender in the SequimDungeness Valley and making Sequim the worldwide destination for lavender lovers. Through their passion and dedication, the sweet smells of lavender in the valley have given the farms international acclaim.
