Here’s the Scoop:
Lavender is $10 per bunch. You are welcome to purchase as many bunches as you would like. We will supply you with a premeasured tie and you can expect to fit 20-30 stems within the tie. Parking is very easy and is on gravel. We have several very clean and well cared for porta potties available. Please bring your own clippers, we do have a few to loan but in case ours are in use it might be best to bring a pair along. We will show you a brief video on how to cut the lavender stems and will be available in case you need help. Picking will be out on the Serpent Mound. The variety is called Phenomenal. It has nice long stems and is perfect for bunching or making wands.
Bees and insects love lavender. Please, if you have any issues with bee stings, take the proper precautions. Bees really don’t want to sting you and most won’t but to be safe please be prepared to take necessary steps to ensure your safety.
Best to bring some water, sunscreen and a hat.
We love people to stroll about the farm and enjoy the ponds and grounds. Please, don’t hop in for a swim.
