Lavender Oaks Farm Tours 2018

Lavender Oaks Farm is part of North Carolina Agritourism and we are excited to be promoting traditional farming techniques and our organic lavender farm in our great state.  Our farm is available to the public through private farm events, a variety of workshops from gardening to art, tours, farm to fork lavender dinners, and later in 2018, we’ll begin propagating our own lavender cuttings in our greenhouse.   Please go to our Contact page to request information on Lavender Oaks Farm and please follow our progress on our Blog.  It is our honor to be an American Farmer!

Visiting our Farm

As a working lavender farm, we ask for your assistance in staying with all children at all times during your visit.  There is large farm equipment located on our land, gravel roads, and several acres of forest, as well as a 3/4 pond, so please follow our safety and directional signs located around the farm.  Please park in our parking lot and keep our circle drop off area clear of all vehicles.  There is handicap parking adjacent to our Lavender Barn. Our lavender is planted on long rows with white weed fabric protecting our raised mounds. Please stay on the pathways between the lavender rows and only cut lavender that is available to pick.  Lavender typically blooms from late May to early September, so please allow our lavender to rest during its dormant months from October through April. Lavender is an evergreen, so it is quite beautiful during the winter months.  Our farm is smoke-free, and we provide receptacles for your garbage, so please help us to keep our farm clean and healthy. If you have any questions regarding your visit, please email us at: info@lavenderoaks.farm.  We look forward to welcoming you to our family lavender farm!
