We just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all of our solar eclipse visitors that came to our farm this weekend!! It was our closing weekend for the 2017 summer season and you all helped make it such a FUN festive occasion. We just can't compliment these visitors enough - everyone was SO delightful, engaging, polite and fun!! We hope you all had a wonderful time exploring our beautiful area and had safe journeys home :-)
Hi friends! We have been having so much fun this summer and enjoying all of our visitors!! Currently, we are very much under way with the harvesting of our lavender, which is pretty interesting to see if you haven't yet ;-) Not to mention, the aroma of lavender distilling is heavenly!
There are still many varieties of French Lavender in prime condition for U-pick, (see images below) and we do have a small selection of plants for sale. As our farm season is winding down for the summer, we did want to give everyone a heads up on closing times.
We will keep regular hours: Wednesday thru Saturday, 10am-5pm and Sunday, 12-4pm until the 20th of August - this will be our LAST DAY!
We will be CLOSED for the Solar Eclipse on the 21st of August.
You can also find us at the Culver Crawdad Festival on the 19th of August from 10am-5pm.
If we don't see you between now and the end of the season, you can always call us if you're in the area and want to arrange a time to visit our gift shop :-)
A Study in Day Lilies...
I just wanted to take a break from posting pictures of Lavender to highlight some of our delightful Day Lilies that are popping out all over at the moment...bring so much joy to our garden :-)
Many of you may not know, but Day Lilies were an inspiration to my Mother when she first envisioned the idea of having a flower farm when she retired. Living in Northern California at the time, she used to visit all the beautiful Day Lily farms in the area and dream of one day having a flower farm of her own. That dream turned to Lavender some time after moving to Central Oregon and learning how well it grows here and also falling in love with all the wonderful attributes of Lavender.
But it sure is nice to have some of these delightful Day Lily flowers in our garden now...they are so spectacular and surprising! I can see why Mom loved them so much :-)
Here are a few fun shots from yesterday on the farm. U-Pick is in prime condition with both French and English varieties ready to cut. Have a look at some of the beautiful bouquets some of our visitors cut yesterday!
Come join us this weekend for the Oregon Lavender Association Annual Farm Tour. We will be open our regular hours from 10am-5pm on Saturday and 12-4pm on Sunday. We still have plants for sale in our nursery, our gift shop will be open, U-pick is available or you may want to make a lavender wand try some lavender lemonade and cookies :-) We hope to see you!
Here's a few fun photos from the past few days on the farm...
Our U-pick lavender is ready to go with lots of varieties in full bloom, ready to be cut and taken home to enjoy! There are still plants available in our nursery and the gift shop has a wide range of lavender products to try.
