Teton View Lavender Farm


Husband and wife team of Tom and Linda Howell first got addicted to lavender when Tom lived in Provence.  Now, living near the Snake River in Idaho, the pair grow more than 2500 plants of many different varieties of lavender.  Offering culinary and and hybrid versions of the plant, they make soaps, spices, salts, scrubs and honeys. Like the old school version, grab some to stick in a vase and add a lovely scent to your home.

The pair, often donning the color themselves, are at the market each Saturday. Their farm in Saint Anthony is also open to the public through the end of September. Find out more here.


Teton View Lavender Farms offers a variety of lavender goods.

Old Fashion Peach Cobbler


  • Peach Cobbler
  • 7-10 peaches
  • 1 c sugar
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tbl lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon peel
  • 1.5 c flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 c butter (very cold)
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 c milk
  • 2 tbl sugar


  • Heat oven to 400º. Grease with butter a 8x8x2" pan. Blanche peaches in boiling water for 1 minute. Immediately immerse peaches in ice cold water to stop cooking. After cool peel skins off peaches, slice and place in large bowl. Sprinkle with mixture of 1 cup sugar, almond extract, lemon juice, and lemon peel. Place in oven. Meanwhile, sift together flour, baking powder, 1 tbl sugar and salt. With fork, work the cold butter into the dry ingredients until it resembles crumbs. Add milk and egg and combine until moist but not sticky. Add a tiny bit more milk if too dry. Remove peaches from oven and spread dough over the top. Sprinkle with remaining 2 tbl sugar and bake for 35-40 minutes or until dough is browned and peaches are bubbly. Serve warm with heavy cream, ice cream or whipping cream.
  • While the boats are baking, gently fry the onion and garlic in oil of choice for a couple of minutes. Add zucchini and your other veggies, and any seasonings you wish. Cover and cook for 10 minutes until veggies are soft. Add cooked sausage (optional). Stir in pine nuts and basil and set aside. Remove zucchini from oven and gently pour out water from pan. Fill the shells with the vegetable mixture and sprinkle with cheese. Place back in oven for another 10 minutes. Serve immediately.
