We moved to our turn-of-the century farm in 1993, which is located in the West Hills of Salem, Oregon. Our dream was to purchase enough land to plant lavender. Initially, the farm needed a lot of work and effort to make this dream a reality thus, we began our journey to restore and preserve this grand old place. There were wild berry vines to remove, fields to till and a barn to repair before we could begin planting the lavender. With determination and hard work, we began to see improvement.
Today, we have approximately three acres of lavender and every year in July we look forward to gazing at the stunning purple waves of lavender and breathing in the intoxicating fragrance that stimulates the mind and moves the spirit.
We hope you will take a deep breath, relax and enjoy your visit to the farm.

This years Lavender Festival will be a wonderful combination of new lavender products, plants, and lavender distilling demonstrations. Visit our Purple Moon Garden Cottage and enjoy shopping for lavender soaps, lotions, fresh and dried lavender bunches, culinary lavender buds, Sundance lavender infused honey and jams, lavender lemon cookies, lavender lemonade, and lavender infused syrup.
Our lavender oil distilling demonstration is a close-up look at how our essential oil is produced. Butch and Mike will be on site to answer your questions about different varieties of lavender used in the production of essential oils and the different scents they produce.
Come early and take a self guided farm tour out to the Garden Cottage to pick your own lavender. Picnic, walk through the lavender field Pergola and down Hornbeam Allee; check out the barn filled with dried lavender, and the water features and herbal gardens filling the air with their wonderful scents. A WONDERFUL time will be had by all!
