Hours

Extended weekend hours:

  • Friday 10am-10pm —  Barn Dance with Joy in Mudville 7pm-10pm
  • Saturday-Sunday 10am-6pm

Plants for Sale

We will have thousands of plants for sale. As one of the largest plant propagators in North America, we have the choice and selection you desire. And if you want fresh cut lavender, you can cut it in the fields, or we will cut if for you (same price) so you have the freshest lavender possible. 

Learning

Victor Gonzales

Victor will be here at the farm all weekend. When not conducting workshops you’ll be able to find him wandering the fields and chatting with visitors. A great opportunity to meet one of North America’s foremost lavender experts. Along with Victor’s workshops, Susan Harrington, CEO (Chief Education Officer as she likes to call it) of Labyrinth Hill Lavender will be joining us all weekend.

Do you want to start a lavender farm? This is where to start. Victor’s has helped more than 300 farms throughout North America and in other countries including Morocco and Mexico.

Lavender Experts Help You Out

We have lavender experts on hand throughout the weekend to answer all of your questions—real time with real experts. There is no one in the valley who has this much knowledge and experience and they are ready to assist you.

Drying Barn

We have one of the only drying barns in the valley where you can wander in and smell more than 6,000 hanging bundles – there is nothing like this smell to capture your senses! (and come to the Friday night barn dance and party under the lavender).

FREE Friday Barn Dance

Friday 7pm-10 pm – Barn Dance with Joy in Mudville!  Join us in the barn, surrounded by drying lavender, with one of our greatest bands. Food and beverages are available for purchase throughout the evening. Victor and Maribel produce this free dance to thank the community for your support over the years. FREE ADMISSION!

Products

Maribel manages the production of a fantastic line of lavender-based products made right here on the farm with the assistance of Beth Norris and Barb Landbeck of Moosedreams Lavender. Specializing in sought-after goat milk lotions and spectacular hand-shaped goat’s milk soap, our products feature year-round skin care. You can order our products year-round online, both wholesale and retail.

Why goat’s milk for skincare?

Goat’s milk is rich in essential fatty acids and triglycerides. The essential fatty acids have a unique PH similar to humans, so it is less irritating and more easily absorbed by our skin. These fatty acids and triglycerides are super moisturizing. But there’s more! Goat’s milk contains precious skin minerals like selenium and is loaded with vitamins, particularly vitamin A, the most important vitamin for the skin. Goat’s milk has unique nourishing properties that make it the perfect ingredient to add to anything which touches your skin. It is both an anti-aging wonder and a lifesaver for dry and sensitive skin.

Lavender fields

We have over 5,000 gorgeous lavender plants in our fields around the farm

On the Menu – Tamales and Lavender Sausages

What a treat! Maribel Gonzalez is making her family recipe tamales!
