Apple Hill Lavender

About Lavender

Our interest in lavender began with thoughts about diversifying from an apples-only farm. Jan had first encountered this crop during her career as an agrologist. We are both botanists and it seemed a fascinating choice. In 2008 about 1/4 acre was planted in a spot where apple trees had been removed.

The following year we visited Sequim, Washington to see how the lavender industry had developed and prospered there. Fired up by the beauty and lore of this historical plant we returned home and jumped in with both feet! In 2010 we planted 3.5 acres on the East side of the farm.

Visit our century-old farm and enjoy a self-guided walking tour of the field, see how we distill and process our lavender into a variety of products, and admire the antiques lining the walls of our fully-restored Carriage House.
