Summer Wind Down

Summer Wind Down

Vermont may be known for its vibrant fall foliage and pristine winter skiing, but only when the sun starts to shine and the flowers begin to bloom, does the true magic unfold. From berry picking and campfires, to lakes and swimming holes, Vermont holds endless opportunities to escape reality and embrace the beauty that surrounds you.  

This summer on the Farm was filled with new endeavors and as always, the delicious fresh smell of calendula, lavender, meadowsweet and more. As we wave au revoir to August and summer starts to wind down, we're reflecting back on the past few months filled with nature walks, serene early morning coffees, and golden hour evenings in the countryside.


Summer on the Farm is the perfect place to rediscover yourself and what makes your soul happy. It is a place to escape the noise, to ground yourself, and to create your own little hideaway. Being among nature, wandering the gardens and having our hands in the soil, reminds us of all the little things that make life so beautiful. 


As much as we love traveling and discovering new corners of the world, a part of our heart is always back on the farm in Vermont. No matter where you are, a true hideaway is attainable to all of us - you just have to look below the surface.

Summer On The Farm 

Summer on the farm is also when our gardens are bursting with fresh blooms & botanicals. For Doreen and Steph, our head gardeners, this is their high season. We grow our Estate Grown Beauty Complex in the garden which includes calendula, borage, arnica, meadowsweet and alfalfa. This year we also grew roman chamomile, lavender, helichrysum, lemon balm, and echinacea. This year, our calendula wouldn’t stop growing! We were so lucky to have an abundance. This special blend is a key ingredient in our Tata Harper products. 


We have been working hard all summer long to batch the products you know and love. Key ingredients such as our Estate Grown Beauty Complex are picked straight from our garden, dried in our greenhouse where we then macerate them in olive oil, and then batched into your favorite products. 

Our Freshest Summer Ingredients 

Something we absolutely love about summer is how the soft countryside breeze is filled with the smell of our lavender harvest. Lavender is such a soothing, healing ingredient that is featured in so many of our products. Looking back on this past year, our Limited Edition Lavendar Eye Crème was one of our favorite products! 

Our head batchmaster, Jon, is an essential oil genius, so he lead our team through the whole process - from harvesting to distillation. We bought gorgeous copper vats and began the distillation process, starting with harvesting all of the lavender from our own patch. Once we had all of the lavender it was time to add it into our kettles! After about an hour, we had lavender essential oil. Be on the look out in case we bring back our Lavender Eye Crème again this year!
