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.
Entrance fee for June and July is 5.00 per car of 4 people. Pay at the at the entrance to driveway (see box) - be sure to have exact change. Or pay at the shop.
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.
We are trying a new method for U-Pick Lavender this year. Once we have a better idea of full bloom time we will announce dates and times to arrive and you just pay inside the shop. We will go over directions of how to cut and only where you may cut your own lavender. So watch for details to come. *Hint: last year it was the second and third week. Two years ago it was the first two weeks.
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

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
