Fourth Generation Family Farm
HOMEGROWN LAVENDER FROM THE BEAUTIFUL COUNTRYSIDE OF CHARLEVOIX, MICHIGAN
A Family Farm
Our farm is on part of the original property that Craig’s grandparents, Jack and Frances Boss, purchased in 1930 as they began to raise their family. Starting with a few dairy cattle and cash crops, their family grew to 5 children who helped maintain the farm. Through the years, additional crops and livestock came to the farm, including turkeys, pigs, potatoes, and strawberries. Jack and Frances always maintained a commitment to being great stewards of the land.
After purchasing the property in 2009, we continued to lease our acreage to neighboring farmers. In 2015, when the youngest of our four children was soon to head to college, we decided to convert a portion of our land into a lavender farm. Initially, we were interested in simply adding another component of beauty to our property, however, as we continued to research lavender, we realized that we wanted to commit to more than just a few plants. After consulting with lavender growers, we planted our first 600 plants in 2016.
As the plants thrived in our naturally loamy and balanced soil, we began developing unique products that are now sold locally at farmer’s markets, festivals, and online. We take pride in using no pesticides or herbicides in growing our lavender.
The mission of our farm has always been to help nurture the love of lavender, protect and sustain our land, bring the highest quality of products to market, and to educate and empower our customers.
