Our lavender farm is now closed for the 2020 harvest season. Thanks to everyone who supported our curbside pickup for three weekends. Next year we hope to hold our normal U pick operation at the farm.
We’ve been working really hard to transfer our gift shop items to our online store for the 2020 harvest season. Finally, it’s ready and you can now start placing your orders for curbside pickup on May 30 & 31 June 6, 7, 13, & 14 from 1:00 pm-6:00 pm.
If you are viewing this site from a mobile device, please scroll down and click on “view full site”. Choose the SHOP tab and browse thru our store. We are offering many new items this year. At the point when you have entered your payment info it’s important that you follow the STORE PICKUP INSTRUCTIONS!! If you are ordering fresh bundles please choose the pickup date accordingly to the approximate bloom dates. Please note that the exact bloom date is totally dependent upon mother nature and your bundle order will be filled with the availability for your pickup date. If you have ordered plants, they will be reserved for you regardless of which date you choose.
APPROXIMATE BLOOM DATES
May 30 & 31-Lavender bundles of culinary varieties that will have short stems and may be limited in supply.
June 6 & 7-Lavender bundles should be some culinary mixed with non culinary short stem bundles.
June 13 & 14-Lavender bundles will all be the longer stemmed, more aromatic varieties of Grosso, Phenomenal and Provence. We should have a lot of these. These make the best bundles!!
Our farm will be closed outside of these dates. We ask that everyone please stay in your vehicle and photographs will not be allowed this year. We realize this may cause some disappointment for some of you but it’s the only way we feel we can still offer our products to you this year due to COIVD 19 and our family having underlying health issues. Thanks for your understanding and patience this harvest season.
Orders to be shipped will not be available until June 25 for the items that we can ship.
Due to COVID 19 our annual upick event will be a bit different this year. On May 15th our website will go live and you will be able to place your order of lavender plants, pre picked bundles of fresh lavender as well as all our gift shop items. We have several new items this year that I’m sure you will enjoy. On the site you will be asked to specify which day you choose to pick up your order in our driveway (curbside).
The dates available will be May 30 & 31 June 6, 7, 13, & 14 from 1:00pm-6:00pm each of those dates. Keep in mind the weekend you choose to pickup your order will depend on the lavender in bloom for your fresh bundles ordered. We will ask that you remain in your car for the pickup as you will not be able to pick your own bundles this year.
On May 15 we will list the bloom dates on our website so you can coordinate your curbside pickup accordingly. If you are using a mobile device you will need scroll down to click on view full site for best results.
The good news is that our lavender is greening up and we will begin to give it’s annual haircut this week. The bad news is we are not sure quite how to handle our annual U-Pick operation this year due to the COVID 19. Today our thoughts are leaning towards being open for 6 days, Saturday & Sunday for 3 weekends in June. The process might sound like this; You would need to place your order thru our Facebook button shop now or thru the website and prepay for your order including the number of pre-cut fresh bundles of lavender that we would pick for you. When you drive up we will hand you your order. At this time, unless this change, no one will be able to pick their own bundles this year or get out of their cars. We might come up with other ideas before June. We will be getting our full gift shop loaded onto our website soon. Hoping everyone stays well and that this all is just temporary. Please check back in a few weeks for new post and more definite plans.
Thanks to you all, we had a great 2019 season. Our attendance totaled 1900 visitors to our lavender hillside. Our farm is now closed and we plan to open in June of 2020. For purchases throughout the year, please visit our online store or the local retailers listed on this site.
