Growing & Creating Colours

Vibrant Acres Colour Farm is a small farm for growing and harvesting natural colours from plants. Creating vibrant colour from plants combines a deep love for craft with a desire to connect with the land. The dye process requires slowing down, selecting plants, sourcing water, creating a colour bath, waiting while the goods are dyed, and hanging them on a line to dry. It is a whole process that brings with it layers of history, meaning, and connection with the local region.
