Can I pick lavender?
In order to maintain the beauty of the fields for all days of the festival, visitors are not permitted to pick their own flowers. A limited quantity of fresh lavender will be available for purchase.
What varieties of Lavender grow on your farm?
We grow 25 Varieties. Each area will be marked with the variety and what its used for. Lavender comes in many colors, including white, pink and various shades of purple.
Will the Lavender Be in Bloom during the festival?
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 2 years old, and 1,500 plants that will be 1 year old. Lavender reaches its peak maturity at 3-5 years, so our plants still have some filling out to do. However it is beautiful and smells wonderful.
Can I bring pets?
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.
