SEQUIM’S NEWEST FARM
July 1, 2020 – Victor’s Rain Shadow Lavender, the newest lavender farm on the Olympic Peninsula, is now open for its first lavender season! Victor’s Rain Shadow Lavender features over 4,000 beautiful young lavender plants on 5 acres at the corner of Kitchen-Dick Rd and Old Olympic Highway in Sequim. The farm is open Wednesday-Sunday 10am-5pm thru September.
Three years in development by world-famous lavender grower Victor Gonzalez and new Sequim resident and partner Rex Kellso and Farm Manager Rob Kellso, Victor’s Rain Shadow Lavender offers a colorful variety of plants in a beautiful setting with the Olympic Mountains in the background. The farm store includes all of Victor’s Lavender products made by Maribel Gonzalez and hundreds of plants for sale, with the largest variety of lavender plants in Washington State — more than 30 varieties available in various sized pots, all grown by Victor, Rob and the staff.
The farm has a unique feature for visitors: The lavender will not be harvested until after the farm closes in September, so folks can see the full fields of uncut lavender all summer.
Lavender lovers will have an opportunity to learn from Victor this summer with workshops for the general public as well as commercial farmers during the month of July. Also featured will be soap making with Sarah Jones and Wreathmaking with Christian Gonzalez. Registration is OPEN and online. But HURRY, as class size is limited, and Covid-19 precautions will be in place.
With blooming lavender all summer, beautiful views, a wedding pergola, covered seating and full services, Victor’s Rain Shadow Lavender will be a great wedding and event venue available beginning 2021. Please send inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Farm is located at 1410 Kitchen-Dick Rd, the corner of Old Olympic Hwy and Kitchen Dick Road in Sequim. Victor’s Lavender, the original farm at 3743 Old Olympic Hwy is just a mile away and open thru August with mature fields of lavender, drying barn, and the full range of plants and products, Wednesday-Sunday 10am-5pm.
