Day five of TME’s 5th annual Colorado road trip landed us in Paonia, Colorado. Paonia is favorite to be sure featuring rich agriculture and amazing people. Upon or arrival at our lodging, Big B’s Delicious orchards, we were fortunate to meet Kori Stanton. Kori is a local gal and her family owns a farm down the road.

The Stanton family, Campbell and Susan, and their daughter Kori work daily to provide the best products for the community of Paonia, Colorado. Their farm has lavender front and center. They distill it for use in lotions, soaps, and oil. They also make their own honey, mints, and medicinal herbs.

Kori asked us if we wanted to tour the farm Btw, you can visit Paonia Lavender at Stanton Farms too as they offer tours on Airbnb experiences and get the in-depth process in harvesting and distilling lavender products.

Check out this video where we learn how lavender makes it from farm to oil.
