Are there barn owls living at the nursery? Does Barn Owl Nursery raise or sell barn owls?
No and no, this is a nursery that specializes in growing and using herbs, especially lavender! Barn Owl Nursery got its name because the owner likes owls. In fact, she has a collection of owl gifts that family and friends have given her over the years. The gift shop at the nursery is a barn-like structure. Occasionally owls can be heard and seen flying over the nursery, however, no real owls have made the gift shop their home. We suspect they prefer the easy access to the older, neighboring barns. In honor of owls, and to follow the owl theme, we have chosen a pair of barn owls for the nursery logo. There is an owl weathervane on top of the shop, and part of the owl gift collection does reside inside, to add to the theme. We think this is a wise and fitting choice for our little herb nursery!
