About Our Sponsor Fragrant Isle Lavender Farm

fragrant isle lavenderFragrant Isle was founded on a dream by Martine Anderson. Martine lived in the south of France and long dreamed of having a large lavender garden. After retiring to Washington Island, in a remote area of Wisconsin that is only reachable only by ferry, Martine and her husband, Edgar, looked for a business in which to invest. When nothing seemed suitable Martine’s dream became a reality. In 2013 Fragrant Isle opened their doors with nearly 9,000 lavender plants and today their operation has grown to 20,000 plants, a retail operation, online shop and more.
