Do I need Reservations just to Visit
You do not need reservations to just visit, Except you do need to visit during our open hours. Our u-picks for 2023 are done. We do have fresh flowers in shop while they last. Once our cold night temperatures arrive (usually October) our flowers are done for the year. Frost cause petals to wilt and die back. But the fall color in the tree leaves are beautiful then.

Sorry no dogs or pets are not permitted, except for service dogs.

Touring the Farm
When the farm is open we allow visitors to wander the grounds and explore the lavender and flowers (June bloom for Lavender and July - first of October for flowers). Farm is open from Valentine's Day week through the second week of December. Hours are: Wednesday - Friday 11-3pm, Saturday 10-4pm, and Sunday 1-4pm. Even though the lavender is only in bloom in June and the flowers bloom July through first of October - we do make lavender and flower products with what we grow here at the farm and then sell the products in our shop. We have visitors that come back very ofter to purchase our amazing products, so we keep the shop open so all can visit the shop throughout the year (mid February - mid December). January is pretty cold and we might even have ice or snow, so we are closed then and let the lavender sleep.
Anyone arriving while the shop is closed will be escorted off the property, since we live here at the farm and have chores that need to be done as well as relaxing.
