the 2019 growing season held its usual amount of surprises and set-backs, yet, as we write this in early fall 2019, we are thrilled to note that it was very, very productive. we took growing and post-harvest handling to a whole new level this past summer as we introduced fresh cut flower bouquets. gorgeous, heaving beauty in each and every one ... so much so we basked in the many admiring glances/comments/photo-ops garnered and sold out every week - amazing!!! Not to worry! There is still much fresh-cut decor to come!! shhh, it's kind of a surprise but, yes, fresh cut beauty will grace our market stall right to the end of 2019. and ... that's not the only secret ... our processing capabilities combined with custom-designed manufacturing equipment means we can mass-produce the hottest personal care item on the market right now ... with, of course, our trademark Vauxhall spin on it.
the support to our late start to markets this summer was truly phenomenal. the sheer delight and gratitude triggered by our fiercely loyal little clan who showed up like a happy swarm at markets; the astonishment and appreciation to our wonderously diverse mail order recipients whose support not only blew our minds but website sales snowballed when our revamped site went live (thank you!!); and, personally, the ability to pour more energy and resources into what we do best: the growing of delightful botanicals for our customers enjoyment.
we look forward to seeing you at market this fall/winter season!
