In June we usually have our lavenders in bloom. Based on our photos from last year with dates and this year spiking we are good to go with predicting peak times for purple blooms.
Begin June 3rd!
Times during You-Pick Days: Beginning June 3rd You-pick days will run Wednesday - Friday 12:00 - 2:00pm, Saturday 11:00 - 3:00pm, and Sunday 2:00 - 3:00pm. Having all these times worked well for all to enjoy you-picks without crowding the areas.
Tickets: Price $10 for 50 stems of lavender. Due to popular demand and so that you-picks will be enjoyable we have decided to sell tickets ahead of time. Only 12 people per field at a time. We will have 2 areas to do you-pick. You-pick areas will be marked and you can Only you-pick in these areas. Please bring your ticket with you - which you can save to your phone or print once you have made your online purchase for tickets. We will also have a list of names with dates and times for you-pick purchases at the you-pick tents. If you rather purchase your tickets in the shop it will be based on availability and we cannot promise there will be any available by just walking in at that moment. I would recommend purchasing your your-pick tickets online or calling the shop if you cannot purchase online. No refunds or exchanges will be given. This will be a rain or shine event.
Parking: Charge is 5.00 per car of up to 4 people in June and July. There is an extra charge of 1.00 per person over 4 in a car. This fee can be paid in cash in our collection boxes - as you enter the farm on a post and as you walk to the back field. If you do not have cash for parking - no worries - you can pay inside the shop. The parking fee allows us to replace and repair parking areas and reseed grass and walkway areas, as well as pay for our extra staff members during this busy time. If just visiting the shop and not the lavenders - there is no fee.
Overflow Parking: *If the front of farm parking is full we have another area just past our circle driveway at the driveway of our white trailer. Please be sure to park at this area on the grass - from the driveway. (Pull in to driveway and then park off driveway sideways so we can get more cars in on both sides of driveway.) Thanks
What's the best day to come and do you-picks: Weekends are busier- but usually slows down at lunch time and again at 3:00 pm. Weekdays are usually fine and are slower at lunchtime and after. Having our you-pick days through most of June it allows many opportunities to come and enjoy the you-picks.
What to do at the farm during You-Pick Days: Many people love walking around the farm to see all flowers and lavender, taking photos, checking out our farm chickens in their coop, visiting the lavender shop, enjoying lavender ice cream from the shop, and sitting and enjoying the day with family and friends.
Other Flowers You-Picks this Summer: Once the Zinnias are in bloom - which usually will bloom in July - August. We will have these days of Zinnia you-picks as soon as we know.
Dahlias - we may have also these for you-pick once we see the amount of blooms. We always want plenty in bloom for photos.
Tickets will be sold online for the Dahlias and Zinnias too. Watch for dates for these you-picks.
Sunflowers: We will have some sunflowers available in the shop already cut for purchase once they bloom. We plant the sunflowers close for their support against the winds and love to have plenty of blooms for photos. We will have 3 areas this year for sunflower blooms.
