Season Summary & Exciting Updates
The farm opened for the first time on Friday, June 20th, 2014 and closed for the season on the 4th of August. Our inaugural season was shorter than expected due to weather conditions, which affected the lavender bloom. Nevertheless, we had a wonderful (although HOT) summer in our little chicken coop farm 'boutique.' Many friends, old and new, stopped by to pick fresh lavender, purchase our homemade products, or just relax, chat, and enjoy some lavender lemonade and cookies.
We learned a lot about what visitors want and enjoy. Many were very interested in purchasing lavender plants as beautiful, drought tolerant additions to their own home landscape, so we are working on propagating our plants. Elizabeth discovered that she really enjoys sharing her knowledge of the many different varieties of English lavender, planting and growing tips, and various uses of the plant. As a result, we are now offering private group tours and private sessions to learn from "Liz the Lavender Lady!" Call or email us to book a private group tour of the farm.
In 2015, we moved our farm shop to the other side of the property. For those of you who visited previously, you will now follow the driveway all the way around the lake to the grey two-story cottage. For newcomers, just follow the signs. Our new shop is larger, less dusty and COOLER. We will, of course, still offer "U-pick" lavender from the field, but we just ask that you check-in at the shop first.
We closed up shop for the season on Sunday, July 26th. However, we opened our shop again for all weekends in November and the first two weekends in December for your holiday gift shopping needs!
In 2018, we open Mother's Day weekend and will be open through July 1st. Our days and hours are: Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
Our Holiday Boutique this year will begin November 24th (the Saturday following Thanksgiving) and will end December 16th. Same days and hours as the bloom season-- Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
Additionally, we continue to welcome photographers and their clients (by appointment) for photo shoots, as well as groups for private tours and gatherings...see our On the Farm tab above for further details on those two options.
