A Lavender Farm Between Forest & Sea
It all began with an idea: to bring new life to an old farm.
In 1851 Bilston Creek Farm made its mark on history as the first settlement outside of Fort Victoria, several years before Canada would be founded. For years it was farmed by the Witty family, and treasures of that time still remain, from heritage apple trees, to beautiful old barn board, to rusted tools found buried in the earth.
When we discovered the farm, it had been left fallow for decades, but we could see the beauty beneath the brambles right away. Those years of wild growth left behind perfect soil for growing lavender, the inspiration for our flagship crop.
Today our vision is to build a farm that will remain for centuries to come, where anyone can come to experience the magic of farming. We hope you'll be a part of it!

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and farm is the unceded homeland of the Lekwungen People (Songhees and Esquimalt Nations), shared with the T'sou-ke (Sooke Nation), Scia'new (Beecher Bay Nation) nəxʷsƛ̓ay̓əm (Klallem) Peoples. We humbly look up to these Peoples whose knowledge of agriculture, land stewardship and connection with nature have so much to teach us all.
Our line is made with pure botanicals, lavender, honey and apples, all crafted here by hand. Thoughtfully sourced, natural ingredients complement what we grow, harvest and distill on the farm, creating products you can use to uplift your mood, purify your home and nourish your body.
We blend ancient traditions, like small-batch alembic copper distillation, with natural farming practices, to produce quality products that we can we be proud to share. We use them every day in our homes and hope you'll enjoy using them as much as we do.
