We purchased our 23-acre property back in 2016. Rolling hills with pasture and wooded areas with a creek meandering through the property and a spring fed pond. Our plan was to build a home, move out of the suburbs of Atlanta and retire in paradise. We were looking for a way to have our land provide us with a little income and to keep us busy. While watching an episode of "I Bought The Farm" on HGTV we got the idea to grow Lavender. After researching for 2 years we started planting in Spring of 2019. Our new home was completed in December of 2020 and we currently live there with our two horses-Billy and Princess, our donkey- Sarah, three Golden Retrievers-Layla, Tater and Charlie and our bunny-Chuckles.

My husband is in sales and I am a nurse. We are not farmers nor horticulturists. We both have limited experience with planting flowers and vegetable gardens. This is a "learn as we go" kinda thing. We have learned that it takes a lot of hard work and to expect set backs because nothing comes easy in this business. You are at the mercy of Mother Nature and limited by time and physical energy. We currently have 800 plants including 8 different cultivars (varieties).We have been fortunate to have help from family whether it be with weeding (never-ending), planting, making products and marketing. We appreciate their love and support.

We are so excited to share our lavender and our farm with you. We will do this through our events, our products and our photography. Our lavender blooms from late May until late June with peak blooms around the 2nd and 3rd weeks in June. Some varieties bloom again in late summer. We have planned family-centered events which include: picking your own bundles of lavender, purchasing your own products and plants, pony rides and fishing in our stocked pond. Go to the Events page for the dates and activities planned for our events. We have several products from fresh lavender to dried lavender, lip balm, sachets, candles, tick spray, mosquito spray, horse products and lavender-stuffed animals just to name a few. Go to our Shop to see all of our available products. During our events you are welcome to take your own personal photos or you may book a photography appointment with a professional. Please plan a visit to our farm during June, we'll leave the gate open for you!
