Farmers' Welsh Lavender

The story of Farmers’ (and Wales’) first lavender farm began in 2003 with Bill Newton-Smith and Nancy Durham, wondering how their sheep farm might be put to new use under the blustery, grey skies of Wales. One fine spring evening in Wales, Nancy thought of the lavender hedge in their Oxford garden and wondered if she might be able to grow one on the farm. Never mind the hedge, by September that year an entire field of lavender had been planted. This is how they became farmers and distillers of lavender oil.
