Garden lovers, join the fun!
Another outstanding bus trip planned for garden lovers. It should be a relaxed, fun filled day for garden lovers as we stop at one garden sensation after another.

We specialize in growing and selling lavender flowers and plants, and our farm-made lavender products, featuring our sensational Lavender Honey (just the way the bees make it) and our farm-distilled lavender essential oil and fragrant lavender water.
U-Pick Lavender Season runs from late June through July or until the flowers wane, Mon. - Sat. 10 am to 4 pm. During U-pick, we supply scissors to cut the stems, and twist-ties to fasten the stems into a bunch. The number of stems that can fit in the twist-tie are considered a $5 bunch. Our eight varieties bloom in sequence from late June till mid to late July or possibly later, depending on the weather. Come on out and see how much fun picking your own lavender can be!
