Lavender has become the farm's signature since our first block of 500 Munstead Lavender planted in 1987. Our first harvest was in 1988 and filled two wheelbarrows! We currently specialize in cultivating Sweet Lavender varieties (Lavandula angustifolia) for its scent and taste. Late blooming Lavender includes the True Spike Lavender (L. latifolia) and the new hybrid Lavadins (L. x intermedias). Each July we watch the emerging hues of blue, mauve and purple as Lavender Harvest time approaches once more. And the fragrance ~ Lavender Lovers come explore our site!

Dried Lavender
Basic shipping is $25 and includes the cost of shipping materials, boxes & insurance. Keep in mind; although Lavender is light, we are charged "dimensional weight" & for the longer Lavender it is usually a couple of dollars more for extra length of the box.

We have just finished replanting half our main field of Lavender!

Can't wait to see the new range of lovely purple Sweet Lavender varieties we added in called "Hidcote Beauty", "Elizabeth" & "Hidcote Superior".The other half existing of classic "English Hidcote","Violet Intrigue" & slender blue "Maillette". "Fred Boutin", a beautiful silver leaved Lavandin, is now tucked along the edge of my veggie block ... a favourite for Lavender wands, tall bouquets & wreath work. Always room to tuck a few new ones here & there!

Harvest time is every July ... Look for fresh Lavender bundles then, followed by dry bundles in August: fresh or dried all bundles $6 each.

*Important: All dried Lavender smells stronger when handled.
Squeeze your sachets now & again to break the tiny cell walls on the flower buds and release more naturally stored fragrant oils. Cooking with Lavender, Teas with Lavender or projects like Lavender Bath salts; release the scent/flavour through the action of heat or hot water.
When working with bundles where you are keeping the flower heads intact ~ it is easy to enhance the scent with a few drops of pure Lavender essential oil discreetly added on the bundles!
A little goes a long way.

A good source of Island essential oils is
