No reserve tickets this year for You-Pick Lavender. We are watching closely the lavender spiking and will let you know when we have a better idea. Cost will be 10.00 for 35 stems (florist normal charge is $1.00 per stem). So what a great deal!
Parking charge for the month of June and July is 5.00 per 4 in a car. Pay at the gate - be sure to have exact cash.
We will state the dates and time to do You-Pick and we may need to limit the field space, so first come first serve. Thank you for understanding. Arrive on the date and times and go into the shop and we will let you know if space is available to purchase your u-pick. Once you have purchased your ticket/s in the shop you will be given instructions on where and how to cut and be given correct scissors. Once down getting your 30 stems bundle come back into the shop with your scissors to return and we will wrap your bundle for you. We have cameras - so no cheating when cutting. Sorry to wait, but only Mother Nature knows the correct time of full lavender blooms.
We will not have lavender ice cream this year, due to family surgeries. It's tough getting older. Thank you for understanding.
Photography: Whether you are a professional or amateur photographer taking photos in the field of full bloom lavender is a once in a lifetime event.
We do charge a fee for professionals doing sessions in the field with customers and have sign up either during open or closed shop hours. To book your session please contact the shop. Besides the lavender in bloom we also have sunflowers in bloom and the other flowers also begin to bloom.
