Visit Victor’s Lavender Farm throughout the summer and during the Sequim Lavender Weekend.

Wander back behind the store entrance and explore acres of inviting lavender fields, drying barns filled to the rafters with over 8,000 freshly cut bundles of fragrant lavender, the finest u-cut lavender in the valley, retail store shelves filled with one-of-a-kind lavender products, workshops on growing and using lavender, and more. This is the place to relax, get away from all of the vendors and get some great food (everything has lavender): Uli’s special bratwurst, biscotti, shortbread, ice cream, and lemonade!

Dried Lavender

April 18th, 2014 by Jacki

English Lavender      Loose Lavender

Apparently everyone loves it. In bundles for that decorative touch and wonderful aroma, in sachets for freshening drawers and closets , and in cooking for the unique flavor. It’s a big favorite of lavender fans the world over. So much so that we are completely sold out of all of our dried lavender. (That was kind of a sneaky way to break the bad news to you wasn’t it?) No more bundles, no more loose lavender, no Sweet Summer Bud and no more culinary until August or September. But look at it this way…..it’s a great opportunity to try some of the awesome lavender products from our store.

To freshen a room – try our Forest Breeze Room Mist – I love the stuff.   ROOM MIST

If you haven’t already, you might want to try our cremes or lotion – it’s a great way to enjoy a variety of subtle scent combinations while your skin reaps the benefits of Goat Milk. What more could you ask for?
GM CREME 4
We also have some beautiful Goat Milk Soaps. The Lavender Lemongrass is a particularly nice one. PAINTED SOAP 2     GOAT MILK SOAP (2)  BEE SOAP
And there’s always our Lavender Essential Oil that has a multitude of uses.  OIL

So don’t give up hope….there are still lots of ways to enjoy your favorite fragrance. Bath Salts, Lip Balms, Hydrosol, Hand Sanitizer and for the gentlemen, our Northwoods Creme and Northwest Body Mist. And hey – don’t forget your pets. We’ve got lots of great products for them too. So go ahead – give them a try.
We will be sure to let you know when our dried lavender products are available again. We are sorry that we can’t supply them for you now but must say that we are delighted with the popularity of our products. Business seems to be starting off very well this year. Plants sales have been good and the lavender products are doing well. We hope that’s a good sign for our economy and that we have faith that Mother Nature will soon begin to cooperate and give some of you folks a much needed sign of Spring. Hang in there!

Find Folgate At Victor's Lavender Farm Beginning in April

Find Folgate At Victor's Lavender Farm Beginning in April

A tiny bush that packs a big wallop. This variety of English lavender is one of the best oil producers and is considered the best for producing high-yield crops for culinary uses, etc. Folgate is a tiny bush with narrow, small leaves and a sweet aroma. If you like cooking with lavender or enjoy the sweet smell in potpourri and sachets you will love this plant. Ever thought about Lavender Latte? Or Tea? How about Lavender Ice Cream. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination. Plant some in your garden and see for yourself.
