In 2014 we started our lavender farm with 250 plants. We planted the lavender on a whim thinking that it would be fun to see if it would grow here in Newport and it did! We fell in love with its beauty and planted 750 more plants in 2015! We have raised our 5 children here in our 1840’s brick home (they are all adults now) and we have had various animals and large gardens. In this season of life, our little lavender farm was perfect timing for me (Peggy)….I started making lavender products to sell on our website and at craft shows.
Summer 2017 – The lavender plants totaling about 1000 were so stunningly gorgeous that we couldn’t resist opening up our farm to visitors so we could share the beauty and peacefulness! And it was so much fun…we had over 1000 guests that first summer and lots of photographers. We never could have imagined how a small interest in lavender would result in such a dreamy venture! In 2018, we planted 800 more plants, we now have 8 varieties of lavender totaling 2000 plants and in 2021 we had 7,000 visitors!
We have a little cottage full of dried lavender and lavender products and gifts. We offer cut your own fresh lavender in season! Bring a lunch or a good book and just enjoy the peacefulness and beauty! Meander through the lavender and flower gardens and lounge in one of our many seating areas…our hope is that you leave our farm feeling refreshed!!
We hope to meet you someday, Doug and Peggy Moore
