Roger can talk me into almost any farm equipment. He used to farm, and has a variety of interesting implements decorating his office. I managed to turn down the 1940s tractor, but I was a sucker for the enormous copper essential oil extractor. With a graceful Arabic shape, coils of pipe, and the promise of all the lavender oil I wanted, I was sold from the minute I saw pictures. I don’t know exactly how this fits into the business plan. Daniel is willing to humor me on this, and hardly even asks where I am going to get the huge barrels of lavender required to get any meaningful amount of oil.
