Get the latest updates on blooming and fruit picking:

Lavender Update:  There is no lavender blooming at this time.  Due to the heavy freeze that we experienced this past December, the Sweet variety was replanted this month. To our surprise, we are seeing some plants that are spiking and have new blooms. At this point, we are not sure if there will be any to cut since the plants are so young. We will keep you updated if this is the case. The primary varieties that we grow are Sweet, Provence and Phenomenal, however, we are testing new varieties to see if they can sustain the heat and humidity. All of these varieties produce blooms with longer stems which make them better for cutting bundles. We will keep you updated as they grow and develop for the next several weeks. The best way to stay up to date on events, plants and fruit ripening: When a pop up box appears on any of our pages, just enter your email address and you will automatically be added to our newsletter.

 We have fresh plants available each week for sale - $3.95 each.  We are receiving a variety of plants each week and they all require the same care. Hurry out and get your plants while supplies last.

General Information: One of the primary questions that we get asked is "when is the best time to come and see the lavender in bloom?".  We grow two varieties and each one of them bloom at different times. The Sweet variety is our spring bloomer and usually blooms in May/June. The blooming progress is always affected by sun, rain, cold and heat so therefore the actual blooming varies a few weeks either way.  The Provence variety is our late summer bloomer and generally blooms at the end of July and through August and September.  

  During the blooming of either variety we allow visitors to the farm to cut bundles.  Each blooming cycle lasts for 6-8 weeks. 

Blackberries:  We are adding more blackberry plants this month and we generally have berries ready for picking in June. The blackberry bushes have lots of fruit but the berries are not ready for picking. We are monitoring each week and we will keep the website up-dated. Stay tuned!

Peaches:   The peaches did not produce this year. We think the reason could have been due to the hard freeze that we experienced when the trees had their new blooms. What few peaches were on the tree fell off early in the growing stage. Mother nature has not favored us this season and most of that was due to the December freeze.

Figs: The  fig trees are full of fruit so we will see how they progress now with warmer weather and sun. Last year's crop was sparse so we hope to have better success this year. We will keep monitoring the progress and will update often.

Keep checking the website for current updates and even if you’re planning a trip out to the farm in the next few weeks or months, remember that the drive and landscapes are gorgeous in Washington County! The farm is beautiful even when the lavender is not blooming. Stroll the fields and enjoy all of the handmade products and culinary items in our gift shop “The Lavender Patch”.  Relax in one of our rocking chairs and drink a glass of cold lemonade on the porch.  You can also visit our three miniature goats, Fonzie, Oreo and Moonshine.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
