*RED OAK LAVENDER FARM is a small family farm. We started in 2014 when experts, like UGA, stated lavender COULD NOT BE GROWN IN GEORGIA. We never gave up trying. We learned that we can't grow in rows and rows and some lavender varieties can't grow here due to our high humidity and rainfall, but we are still working hard today to provide people a chance to see and enjoy some lavender in Georgia and developed over 100 different products made with our Lavender we sell in our Everything Lavender Shop. We also have extended our flower bloom time with over 50 garden varieties of flowers.
So come visit! With life's tough, busy World it's time to slow down, get back to nature, smell the flowers, and cherish the moments.
Free admission to farm/shop during open shop hours.
Curbside also available - call to order 706-974-8230

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

All of our lavender products are made with current year lavender and in small quantities to keep quality high and fresh. This way lavender smells it best and produces the best quality. We make over hundred products from our lavender. What could be simpiler? We distill our lavender for pure lavender essential oil.
