<br />
The farm, over 10 acres, grows lavender, curry plant, lemon balm, sage, roses and rose hips, camomile, saffron and yarrow.<br />
<br />
The ethos behind the farm is to grow, harvest and distil the crops to then use the oils for various ointments and herbal remedies, hand creams and lip balms.
