Come sit in the sunshine and enjoy the fresh country air at one of our many cozy seating areas. Enjoy the flower gardens, secret garden, fountain and walking path. Bring some friends and have a tea party or birthday party…we provide the tables or blankets for picnics and we have a pretty white tent for shade!
We also have a little cottage full of lavender products: soap, lavender mist, culinary lavender, dried lavender, lavender flax seed neck wraps and eye masks (provides soothing relief from aches and pains), and many other products and unique lavender gifts.

Want to grow your own lavender?? It’s an easy plant to grow and care for, here are a few tips: lavender likes full sun and dry roots. We plant ours in a well drained gravely soil, it doesn’t need rich soil or compost. Not enough sun and over watering are the 2 majors reasons lavender plants die. Another thing to look out for when purchasing lavender from other sources, is making sure the variety is zoned for your area. We grow mainly English lavenders because they do well in our zone. We DO cover our plants in the winter, we use a white row cover – AGRIBON 50. We sell some here on the farm and we also sell lavender plants. We are excited to share any knowledge we have learned in order to help you grow your own beautiful lavender plants!
We’d love to chat with you about your experiences with lavender. Please like us on Facebook (we tend to post current happenings on the farm there), leave a note there or on Instagram or send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).We’d also like to know how you like our products or if there’s any lavender product you’d like to see us carry, we love suggestions.
