Visiting our Farm
DIRECTIONS: Our farm does come up in Google Maps if you have updated your App. Please use the following address for GPS: Lavender Oaks Farm 3833 Millard Whitley Rd. Chapel Hill, NC 27516. When you come down our gravel road, Millard Whitley Rd., drive down the gravel road until the road forks, stay left at the fork and drive through our stone pillars/iron gates and follow the road around past our farmhouse and around to our main parking lot. Please park in our main parking lot, or drop off your passengers at our main barn, then continue back to park in our main lot. There is handicap parking adjacent to our main barn, but please keep the circle drive area clear of all vehicles.
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: firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to welcoming you to our family lavender farm!
