Glendarragh Lavender

In the July issue of Downeast Magazine, Glendarragh Farm was noted for being the Best of Maine for lavender products. The 26 acre farm is in Appleton village, Glendarragh Farm lavender is used in the farm’s line of pillows, sachets, bath salts, seasoning, body lotion, and more. The company believes strongly in the many uses and beneficial properties of this dynamic plant. Take one step inside the store in Camden, be overwhelmed by the aroma, and it’s easy to see why.

Ah! Summer is finally here! My son was born on the first day of summer, so it is always a special day for us. This summer is already proving to be a busy one! I always seem to have extra kids running around my house, trips to the beach, sport camps, and lots of fun in the sun! My summer always seems short, as blueberry season takes up 3 or 4 weeks. I hope everyone enjoys their summer!
