RED OAK LAVENDER FARM is located in the North Georgia foothills close to vineyards, river waterways, and the historic town of Dahlonega. We've been growing lavender in Georgia for nine years - 4,000 lavender plants, Dahlias, Zinnia, and more flowers. And... expanding for 2022.
Hours: Wednesday-Friday 11-3, Saturday 10-4, & Sunday 1-4. Closed all major holidays.
Entrance fee to visit the fields for Only June & July: 5.00 per car of 4 people, not each person. To visit just the shop no charge.
We were able to accomplish the impossible here at our farm and our miracle lavender gardens. Our Cottage Shop takes our lavender from the fields and create over 100 different lavender products - from our farm to you. Natural, pure, and highest quality possible.
You-Pick Season is now closed!
We were able to extend our lavender bloom and you pick season the year for the whole month of June 2022 due to the different varieties of Lavandin Lavender we grow here at the farm allowing so many people to make great memories cutting their own fresh lavenders. We think the hot dry weather was also an advantage of all the blooms this year. We want to thank you all that came out to the farm. We feel very blessed to have so many visitors! Thank you so much!!
We also have Sunflowers!
Summertime is a great time to visit the farm with our many other types of flowers - from bright and cheerful sunflowers, big fancy Dahlias, Zinnias, and other flowers! Great spot for photos and take in a little break in the country among the flowers. The lavender blooms may be gone, but oh La La the flowers that continue to bloom are amazing!
Lavender bloom season is only a few short weeks the first half of June here. Then we spend the rest of the month harvesting those amazingly scented lavender bloom by hand to hang and dry and later sell as bundles or distill to make our pure lavender essential oil and lavender hydrosol. Both filled with health benefits. We then use our oil to make our high quality products. So check out our lavender cottage shop or check out our Dahlias garden and sunflowers or our other flowers for the rest of summer into autumn. Shop is open from March through till mid December or online all the time.Shop Products
Our Flower Gardens are amazing from Summer until mid Autumn with all varieties of flowers from Alliums to Zinnas, Sunflowers and our 1200 Dahlias. On weekends we sale cut bouquets, if we get time.

I heard there are lots of butterflies and hummingbirds here in summer!

Why lavender and why try so hard to get lavender to grow in Georgia?
Lavender has many health benefits and more than just relaxing properties. For way too many years Georgia residents have not known about lavender and all the health benefits lavender provide for us. It is one herb that we can actually use all parts of the plant. Intermedias are for bath and beauty uses and Angustifolias (English culinary) is sweet and adds a bit of culinary complexity to any dessert or drink. Lavender is an antiseptic, anti-fungal, and probiotic.
In 2014 we started planting our first crop of just 500 lavender and 9 different varieties. This was a totally new adventure, since NO One had grown lavender in Georgia past year two without crop failure. But we had small parcel of pasture at our home and decided this beautiful herb was worth trying. Today we grow about 4,000 lavender plants of 19 different varieties, some plants 8 years of age. We have learned a lot through in-depth research, lavender conferences, visiting lavender farms in person and speaking with lavender growers from Arizona, South Carolina, North Carolina, Sequim Washington and also abroad to the Provence area of France and Ireland. UGA visits our farm yearly to check with us to see how we are growing lavender in this harsh environment and being successful.More Information
