How We Came To Be
Perhaps it was destiny that brought our family and horses to this farm that happened to have ideal conditions for growing lavender. To reflect the beauty that lavender and horses bring to our property, our logo represents a marriage of horses and lavender. It was certainly providence that my last name is Steed, the old English word for horse. From this, Steed and Company Lavender was born. We invite you to ESCAPE to Steed & Company Lavender Farm, the premier grower of lavender in Elgin County located along the Ontario South Coast, just outside of the historical village of Sparta, Ontario. The lavender farm is part of a 45-acre horse farm. It is nestled at the edge of a spectacular Carolinian forest on steep valley slopes, which has been designated as an Area of Natural Special Interest (ANSI) by the Ministry of Natural Resources. Steed & Company Lavender grows several varieties of English lavender landscaped into beautiful gardens integrated into the natural beauty of this rural setting. Stroll amongst the lavender flowers, enjoy the experience of the unique heady fragrance of lavender and DISCOVER the views of the outstanding natural features of this ANSI property where by chance you may even see our nesting pair of bald eagles in flight. Visit our lavender boutique and INDULGE in our handcrafted natural lavender products created from our hand harvested lavender using the strict guidelines of our philosophy.
