to Red Oak Lavender Farm LLC
Established in 2014, Red Oak Lavender Farm is a small lavender farm (but largest so far in Georgia) located at the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains in historic Dahlonega, Georgia. We grow and use our own lavender to create some of the most amazing all natural lavender products.
Come walk among our miracle lavender and see for yourself what makes us so special.
Experts stated we could not grow lavender in Georgia, but when you have a dream to create something so beautiful you do not give up! We grow about 2,000 lavender plants and with our harvested lavender we make the best all natural lavender products that we carry in our farm shop and online. Our products are made here on the farm in small quantities in order to provide you with the freshest possible lavender products. Whereas in most places the products sit in warehouses for maybe up to a year before they are shipped to their stores. Our products are only made with 100% pure lavender, essential oil, never synthetic fragrance. So try some of our products today and smell the difference.
*Shipping is always USPS to provide our customers with the lowest shipping prices possible.

Do Not expect the rows and rows of lavender as in France or in Washington state. Due to our high humidity and amount of rainfall we must grow in test gardens to allow air flow. We have about 60 rows, each 100 feet long, throughout our 2.5 acres of lavender. This is a lot of lavender for Georgia! I know... it takes a week working in the fields every day, 8 hours, for 4 people to harvest what we have. We also live here, like most lavender growers do. We must keep a careful watch on the conditions of our lavender.
* Note: Lavender plants are only available for sale from May - July.
