We are busy on the fields throughout the year and are happy to share some of our rose farm life with you.
This year by coincidence we had a true French workforce lined up. With Covid still present we weren’t sure how this year’s harvest and the help needed would turn out…
Magnificent views are just one of the perks of getting up early and picking this small but absolutely beautifully located field. Growing every year and adding new locations to our farm means more coordination with picking the fields. 2019 Harvest has been a whirlwind of a year. Thanks to all the amazing help we had from all over the world we managed to wrap up the harvest successfully.
This year was truly special to us – Was it an exceptionally high yield? No, not really. Were the fields in mint conditions? No, not really. But all that didn’t matter much this year – As we welcomed our new addition to the family.
Later than the last years but richer than ever – and not just in yield but also in sharing with volunteers – this year was truly special. As we expected the harvest to start a little earlier we had a great group of helpers eager to pick with no roses to pick yet – So we made good use of the time and dedicated some joined workforce to one of our fields that has many Black locust trees growing in between the roses as it is next to a natural forest.
With a manageable size and magnificent lake view it is pure joy to work on our new field. Although the thick and lush bushes had suffered from the severe drought this summer, they have stayed strong and produced new shoots from the ground.
Another wonderful picking season has come to an end. Many guests from around the world surprised us this year. Thanks to Virginijas interview on the Lithuanian Blog “Euroblogas” we welcomed several visitors from Lithuania for the first time. It seems like we are becoming popular in our village for having unexpected guests: More and more locals find themselves with the task of bringing our guests over to our house. “I think these people are looking for you” was a common phrase we heard this year.
If you would like to join us this picking season here is some useful information for you…
This year you had to be right on time to make it for the harvest. It was a rather short season and let’s say “relaxed” since nature has decided to give the roses a little rest and not produce too many buds. Luckily, all our guests got a chance to experience rose picking.
Our roses started blooming, it’s time to pick these beautiful blossoms! Let’s see what this year’s harvest will bring us.
Already worried in April that the roses might start blooming any time now due to the short and mild winter, plenty of rain and little sun kept the harvest going. Our longest picking season didn’t faze our guests: This year’s picking season was very Japanese having Yumi and Yuri as our guests.
