The old tobacco barns and spring house foundation (used to keep perishables cool with mountain springs) are still a part of the farm.However, we have now introduced a new crop to the land – lavender.
The initial planting of 4000 lavender plants, consisting of both “English and French” varieties, was completed in the Spring of 2011.
Surrounded by the beautiful mountain tops and bordered by the crystal clear mountain creek, Millbrook Creek.
Started by Larry and Pat White, the farm is located in Sevierville, Tennessee.
The farm produced many crops over several generations, mainly tobacco and vegetables; and provided a lively hood on these crops.
We lost most our lavender in the harsh winter of 2014-2015.
The prior summer the lavender had been weaken with a fungus and we believe the lavender was too weak to sustain zero degree temperatures the following winter.
Since then we have been experimenting with small test plots using different planting techniques, soil mixtures and winter coverings.
But plans are not part of Venice to spend one more day in silence. - I heard that last night you go out more often than usual. Hazard finally sat down, put my feet on a luxury carpet.
- It is likely – Hazard leaned on his elbow, his voice was as lazy as the pose.
He realized that this time he seems to be unable to keep quiet.
Millbrook Lavender Farm, is nestled in one of the most picturesque valleys of the Great Smoke Mountains in East Tennessee.
