Essentially Lavender


We invite you to come and visit us at our Lavender Farm and Lavender Boutique June 1st until September 3rd, Fri., Sat. & Sun. Essentially Lavender in Teeswater.


Essentially Lavender began when the owners, Bill and Cathy Kirk, purchased a beautiful farm in Bruce County in 2012 featuring rolling hills, pastures, woodlots, a pond and a river.  

The farm was originally settled in 1869 and has evolved with various crops and creatures, the most recent being horses, sheep, cattle and elk.  The newest evolution is, of course, lavender and bees.

Looking for a new challenge and a change in lifestyle, Bill and Cathy continue to work to create an oasis where you can come and relax in the luxury of lavender while enjoying a country setting.
