Lavender Oaks Farm
Set to open in Spring 2017…Lavender Oaks Farm will be an organic lavender farm featuring several glorious acres of regal purple fields, historic barns that have been elegantly restored, woodland trails leading to an enchanting pond, and surrounded by 45 private acres of majestic oaks and pristine forest. A hidden treasure located less than 5 miles from downtown Chapel Hill, NC, and within minutes to the nearby cities of Raleigh and Durham. We are meticulously working to create a refined rural setting that will captivate visitors to experience the aromatic and aesthetic qualities of several lavender varieties and learn about the history and health benefits of this wonderful crop. Lavender Oaks Farm promises to be the place to gather family and friends for special events, tours, workshops, and enjoy lasting memories of our purple fields, heirloom barns, and green forest.
Lavender Oaks Farm is a member of the United States Lavender Growers Association, the North Carolina Agritourism Networking Association, and the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association. We are an official United States Farm recognized by the USDA Farm Service Agency and we have a Forest Management Plan (Woodland Plan) prepared by the NC Forest Service to properly and responsibly care for our 45 acres for future generations. Over the next 3 years, we will work towards achieving organic certification and will always practice sustainable farming. Lavender is a favorite crop of bees, so we’ll have an apiary on the farm and produce our own lavender/wildflower honey. Our farm is proud to be part of our local community in Chapel Hill, NC and we plan to provide opportunities to give back to local and national charities. As military parents, we have dedicated one of our picnic areas as, “The David Ellsworth Davis Veteran’s Memorial Park”, as a way to honor our veterans , all those currently serving, and as a memorial to Karen’s father, a World War II Veteran and Purple Heart recipient. We will proudly fly the American Flag in our Veteran’s Memorial Park!
So many plans are underway as we create our farm and we hope you will look to our calendar of farm events as we add, update, and open in Spring 2017! Lavender Oaks Farm is a working lavender farm, so we will be open by appointment only, or by registering for one of our farm workshops and events. We look forward to sharing the beautiful scent of lavender and the peaceful acres of our family farm!
