You must get a ticket to reserve your spot for yourself, family and friends. You will be asked to check in upon your arrival. Your support of the farm is greatly appreciated.
How did this event come about? The open farm weekend was originally planned as a thank you to the farm’s loyal farm friends and a means to invest in those who help to harvest the lavender when the field is ready. The farm is open just a few days a year. In June, during June Bloom, while the lavender is in bloom, and just before the crop is harvested, then again for the Lavender Holiday Market. (Stay tuned.) For your comfort, bring a quilt or lawn chair. A hat, water bottle (working hard to be a zero waste/no single use plastic event), sunscreen, garden shears and of course your camera too. No pets, please. We look forward to seeing you on the farm soon!
