On October 10, 2011, a still that will be used to make our very own essential oils was dedicated by Tom Cato, Cathie Cato Renken, Hal Cato, Susanne and Todd Cato, Fred Grgich, and Bobby McAlpine in honor of Joanne Cato, a long-time supporter of Magdalene & Thistle Farms. On the occasion of Joanne's birthday, we consecrated the still with with joy, tears, and excitement.  This great act of love and generosity will allow Thistle Farms to be a commercial producer of essential oils as we continue to expand our line of healing products.  As the sweet smell of lavender fills the workspace, we are reminded again that our cup runneth over.
