Will the Lavender and/or Sunflowers Be in Bloom during the festival?
Mother Nature is in total control of bloom times.
Lavender typically blooms in this area between mid-June and mid-July. So, providing Mother Nature does her job, the lavender should be in peak bloom.
We are a relatively new lavender farm, we have 2,500 plants that will be 4 years old, and 1,500 plants that will be 3 years old. Lavender reaches its peak maturity at 3-5 years, so our plants are just reaching maturity and they sure smell wonderful.
Our Sunflower fields will be planted with the intention of reaching their peak bloom during our Sunflower Festival which is the last weekend in August, first weekend in September

Due to insurance reasons and the health and safety of your pet and our farm animals, we do not allow pets. Services dogs are allowed, BUT because our lavender is used for cooking, service dogs are not allowed in the lavender fields.
