2020 Lavender Season Update: CLOSED
We have made the difficult decision to remain closed to visitors for our 2020 lavender season. Every year we have hundreds of daily visitors to see our blooming lavender and we do not have our staff available this summer to monitor correct social distancing and manage large groups of visitors in the most responsible way. We hope to offer online sales of fresh lavender bundles in June for farm pick up only, and we’ll post more details here and on our social media.
We plan to offer Culinary Lavender Dinners, Workshops, and Lunch Tours in 2021, and we would love to schedule your group for one of these very popular farm events! Please email Karen at Karen@lavenderoaks.farm for more information.
In these difficult times, we wish you good health, happiness, and we can’t wait to welcome you back to our farm! 💜
Wedding Tours/Special Events: Email Karen at Karen@lavenderoaks.farm to arrange a private in-person tour.
We look forward to welcoming you to our family lavender farm when it is safe to do so.
In the words of Thomas Jefferson:
“Cultivators of the earth are the most valuable citizens. They are the most vigorous, the most independent, the most virtuous, and they are tied to their country and wedded to its liberty and interests by the most lasting bonds.”
Here’s what you can do with fresh cut lavender:
1. Dry it: Hang it upside down in a dark place such as a closet. In about 2 weeks your lavender will be dry and you can either display it, or rub the buds off the stem and use it as culinary lavender.
2. Display it fresh: If you put your fresh cut lavender in a vase it is best not to put water in the vase. The stem becomes moldy very quickly.
3. Bake or Cook with it: Fresh lavender is wonderful sprinkled on fruit, made into a simple syrup, or added to salads or soups.
