to Red Oak Lavender Farm LLC
Established in 2014, Red Oak Lavender Farm is a small lavender farm (but largest so far in Georgia) and shop, which is located at the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains in historic Dahlonega and tucked away in among the vineyards. So when you visit us there are lots to do in Dahlonega. 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 our shop to 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 also wanted to carry through with our harvested lavender to create the best lavender products. Our products are proven to be the best all natural lavender products around. We have many that return to our farm shop or our online shop for more purchases. Their comments tell us we are selling fantastic products that feel, smell, and actually work. Lavender is known for its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and healing properties. Research suggests that it may be useful for treating anxiety, insomnia, depression, and restlessness. Benefits: reduce stress, relieves headaches, promotes, and helps to treat skin conditions (based on research). Fresh lavender have been known to keep deer, scorpions, and moths away. Making it great for homes and gardens.

No matter the season, there is something special going here on the farm. Spring we have rebirth of lavender turning green and this is the season we begin our plant sales so others may grow lavender. Summer is the best with purple blooms of lavender and the scent of lavender fills the air, as well as visits from butterflies and bees collecting lavender nectar. Later summer is when we harvest our blooms and hang them up from the ceiling in the shop for drying, just as in the colonial and renaissance days. Fall is when we see a few more lavender spike in the fields to remind us of summer days. Winter is when the lavender sleeps and we have our open house with hot lavender cocoa and wreath making classes.

Our products are made right here on the farm, in small quantities in order to provide you with the freshest possible lavender products. They never sit in warehouses. Our products are only made with 100% pure lavender, essential oil, never synthetic fragrance. All of our oil is distilled only from the lavender. Come visit and see, feel, and smell the difference or check out our online shop.

*Note - Do Not expect the rows and rows of lavender as in France or in Washington state. We are closer latitude to the equator, so have hotter and more humid weather. Much harder to grow lavender in the South, but we do our best.
