Farm hours during harvest will be 10AM to 5PM each day of the event.
It’s time for one of our yearly harvest events. These two weeks we will be hosting the Harvest event. You can come out for a variety of farm activities all orientated around the harvest of the lavender.
The main activity is picking your own lavender. During this time the lavender buds are fragrant and full, not having bloomed into flowers just yet. They have the most oils and aroma of any time in the year, and so this is the moment most people desire to harvest the lavender stems.
Come out with your baskets and take to the fields, clipping lavender stems off the plants. The pricing for this is .10$ a stem. We recommend getting a bouquet of 300 stems collected. This gives you enough of the buds to work with in any personal projects, and for display purposes you have plenty of options. For those who want the lavender but don’t want to go into the fields picking, we do sell pre-picked bundles. Each visitor will receive a pamphlet on instructions and advice for using lavender in crafts and preserving the buds for long time use.
There will be wreath making classes that start at 45$. With the lavender in hand we will show you how to construct a wreath of 12 inches out of the picked lavender, how to weave decorations into it, and the best ways of preserving it. We encourage visitors to bring their own embellishments that they wish to add to their wreaths to give it an even more personal touch. These make for amazing gifts and they retain that signature lavender smell. Wreath classes will persist until supplies run out.
We have lavender wand classes through out the entire harvest. The cost is $6.00 per wand , we provide the lavender, ribbon and instrustor. Wands can ONLY be made these two weeks while the lavender is fresh.
During the harvest event we also highly encourage visitors to the farm to bring a blanket and picnic basket. We have plenty of open space under the large shade trees for you and your family/friends to have a nice meal in the peaceful quiet of the backwoods.
All visitors, please bring sunscreen and bug spray. Sunscreen is especially important if you intend to pick your own lavender.
