We don’t know about you but we’ve been well and truly taken over by the spirit of Christmas this year! Our stall in the market, our farm shop and online shop have already been guided by Yuletide for at least the last month or so but in these days where we’ve been advised to be “jolly careful” rather than just plain old jolly, we hope that we’ve been able to spread some Christmas cheer through these various shopping channels stocked with seasonal treats.
We also hope that a Christmas tree that we donated from our farm to our local village is bringing much joy to our fellow residents. It has become a tradition over the last few years for us to select one of our homegrown trees to become the festive focal point of our village green. This year was no exception and we were lucky enough to pick a bizarrely balmy day to install it. Like most communal displays, the local parish council weren’t able to arrange the big light switch on but they’ve done a grand job of decorating and ensuring the tree is still lit up.
As this post will be our last for 2020, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of you so much for supporting us throughout this most challenging of years. As a small family run business, we’re so grateful that many of you still came to visit us or have chosen to shop with us.
If you still have any presents left to find, we still have a wide selection of our own gift boxes, lavender toiletries, candles, dried flowers, essential oils and new for this year – our own lavender gin. We also have locally produced jams, chutneys and pickles as well as locally crafted artisan gifts. Our farm shop is open until 18th December and you’ll be able to find us at our stall in the Hitchin Christmas market until 22nd December. Our farm shop is open Monday to Friday 10.00am – 3.00pm and the Christmas stall is open daily from 10.00am – 5.00pm and until 7.00pm on Thursday night. Our online shop is always open!
We’ll be able to fulfil any online orders to a UK mainland address placed by 18th December and will be able to squeeze in some last minute deliveries to local addresses within a five mile radius if you let us know before 22nd December.
We wish you a very merry Christmas and happy new year!
With all our best wishes
The Hitchin Lavender Team
