Can I dig up the lavender?
No, lavender is a perennial and will come back every year. The plants on the farm are large mature plants which have a deep root that does not like to be transplanted.
The walking paths on the farm are mostly grass and gravel. You can push a wheelchair but please know it is uneven ground.
Do you sell lavender plants?
Yes, lavender plant sales begin in mid-April and continue in early spring until we sell out.
Do you sell lavender seeds?
No, lavender is very hard to grow from seed, it is best to use a starter plug which is what we do on the farm.
How long does fresh lavender last?
Once lavender is cut it is very fragile. It will last a day or maybe two if kept refrigerated.
When is the best time to come?
If you are looking to see the full lavender in bloom, the best time to come is the first or second week in July.
Which lavender tastes the best?
While some lavender has a more soapy taste, they are all edible. We do not use any chemicals on the plants so you can use any of our lavender for culinary purposes. We cook with mostly Phenomenal.
Which lavender smells the best?
Everyone has a different opinion and each lavender variety has a slightly different aroma, smell them all and let us know which one you like the best! We use the Grosso variety to make our lavender oil.
How do I take care of my lavender plant?
Lavender does not like to have wet roots, so a good rocky or sandy soil will help drain the water and keep them happy. All plants will need a little extra water than normal when they are first planted but after established they do not need much. They also like a LOT of sun!
How does UPick work?
You will purchase a "Upick Bundle" when you arrive at the farm during business hours. The last Upick bundle tickets are not sold past 30 min prior to closing. You will receive a flower band and scissors to cut your own lavender. You are welcome to mix and match the lavender varieties until you have a large enough bundle the flower band will wrap around. Once you have finished cutting you will return the scissors and enjoy your lavender!
Can I bring food on the farm?
Yes, you are welcome to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy on the farm during business hours.
How do I schedule a presentation?
Presentations are available on the farm during lavender season as well as in person at your location during the off season. Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule.
