Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you allow weddings at the farm?
    We are honored that you would consider us for your special day but at this time the answer is no. We are currently developing the property to facilitate those special occasions in the future.
  • Are you open to the public?

  • When does the lavender bloom?
    We are hopeful for a beautiful bloom this season! Typically, in our zone, lavender begins to wake up from winter the beginning of May and will be in bloom by mid-June to early July. Several varieties of our lavender will re-bloom throughout the summer, but the biggest bloom is in July. We also grow sunflowers. The sunflowers bloom in late September and into October.
  • I am afraid of bees, how do I see your lavender up close?
    This is an active farm with nature in full swing so there is a potential for a occurrence with wildlife. The lavender is such a relaxing plant that the bees and butterflies happily dance from flower to flower, and it is quite a beautiful site. They are so busy pollinating that they really do not seem to notice visitors. We do ask that our visitors respect the nature among our lavender fields and not swat or bat at our friendly flying pollinators.

    Currently, we do not sell plants.

  • When is your lavender harvested?
    The lavender is harvested a few weeks after the bloom begins - usually late June through early August. How long does it take lavender to dry after harvest?
