Happy Valley Lavender and Herb Farm


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!

Cooking Lavender

Our very best Lavender to use in any food or drink is our Sweet English “Hidcote” Lavender. It has the best fragrance and colour. Your Lavender jellies and syrups will have the deepest ruby tones when infusing fresh or dried “Hidcote”. (Keep in mind when using dried Lavender flowers do not over brew or the colour will go murky & taste become bitter) Typically use 2 TBSP dried Lavender per baking recipe (4grams) or 3 TBSP fresh…

75 gram packages Sweet dark Hidcote $10.00 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 our pure Lavender essential oil discreetly added on the bundles!
A little goes a long way.


Loose Dried Lavender
Loose, bulk dried Lavender has been rubbed off the stem and is the flower buds only. Screening removes any stem debris before packaging and weighing.

Our loose dried Lavender is the flowers only, it is the same quality as our Cooking Lavender & the same Sweet English “Hidcote” variety with a deep purple colour even when dry.

A full pound of Sweet Lavender is roughly 15 cups … $55.00
A Half pound costs $30.00

Basic shipping is $18 and includes the cost of shipping materials…boxes etc. 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.
