Our Upick lavender farm will be open June 4, 5, 11, 12, 18 & 19. Each of these weekend days the hours will be 10 am to 5 pm. Be sure to mark your calendars so you don’t miss our short season. Much more to be announced.
As most of you may know, our farm gift shop is only open during the blooming season, weekends in June. Year around all of our items may be purchased at Annabelle Market, 300 South Main St, Anna, IL 62906. Be sure to check their Facebook page for store hours. It is a great shop with many vendors and full of many wonderful items and gifts. Our booth is fully stocked so be sure to check it out.
We now offer The Republic of Tea tins of tea bags in many flavors. Our online store carries our most poplar varieties but the gift shop has many more. The Silver Forrest earrings are very popular and are very high quality earrings. Each month I add more to the rack so keep checking back to see the latest styles.
Another new item is a lavender donut shaped hand soap that is very cute!! Donut shaped bath bombs are a real hit with the kids. The new soap lifts let your bar soap dry out and it comes in oval and butterfly shapes. We have added three new bath bombs to our lineup; Oatmeal Milk & Honey, Eucalyptus and Cucumber Lavender.
We ask that you wear a mask inside the gift shop and practice social distancing while on the farm. If you have your own scissors or flower clippers please bring them with you. Four varieties of lavender plants will be available for purchase when we open.
Our online store is open for orders by clicking on the tab “shop”. Most orders can be shipped out within two days of your order via USPS. We have a wonderful retail booth located inside Annabelle Market, 300 South Main St, Anna, IL 62906. Our booth is fully stocked with our popular lavender products plus we now carry Silver Forest Earrings, The Republic of Tea and many more items. Be sure to like the Facebook page for Annabelle Market so you can see their hours of business. You will love the store with many booths and fabulous home decor for sale throughout. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you and thanks for supporting our small business during this difficult year of 2020.

Our farm is closed until June of 2021 and hoping for our usual U Pick season.
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.
June: 1st & 2nd, 7th – 9th, 14th – 16th From 10 am – 5 pm
