All adult guests must wear a mask while visiting our Farm Shoppe, using our restrooms, entering our Barn, or in close proximity (within 6′) to other guests. You may remove your masks when outside more than six feet from other guests so you may enjoy our aromatic lavender fields, fresh air, and beautiful nature that will surround you. Our lavender fields are full of butterflies, honey bees, bumble bees, and birds. The lavender makes them very sleepy, and it’s a beautiful dance of nature to behold. Please enjoy watching all our tiny farm friends in our fields, but please do not swat or bat at them as they perform their much needed work of pollination.
We kindly ask that you NOT visit our farm if you have been diagnosed with COVID within 14 days of your visit, or have been around anyone with COVID OR SYMPTOMS OF COVID.
We will begin allowing a small handful of guests to cut some of our blooming lavender in June. Please understand we use our lavender to create our handmade products, so until we know how much lavender will bloom we can not guarantee that all visitors will be able to cut some fresh lavender, but we’ll do our best to have some ready for you in our Farm Shoppe.
We must close our farm during inclement weather, so please ALWAYS check our website or social media stories for any closures due to weather.
Entering our Farm:
Please DO NOT ENTER our Farm if we are not open even if our front gates are open. We frequently leave our gates open for appointments, private events, tours, or deliveries, and since we live on our farm we hope you’ll respect our privacy and not enter if we are closed to visitors.

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.
