Lavender vs Covid 19

Due to COVID 19 our lavender field is closed to the general public and u pick has been canceled.  We realize this may cause some disappointment for some of you.  However, we will be open for curbside pick up at the farm of fresh lavender bouquets for $7. We will be open only in this time frame.
Friday, July 3rd 10 - 4
Saturday, July 4th 10 – 4
Sunday, July 5th 10 – 4

CASH ONLY:  Please wear face masks and bring correct change.

Rhubarb Kitchen and Garden Shop in Skaneateles will also be selling fresh and dried lavender during store hours when lavender is in bloom.  For information call the store at 315-685-5803.

We have greatly appreciated your past support of our family farm and look forward to seeing you next year.

Lavender Phase

So many of you have been asking if we will be open this summer, and if so when? Please know we hear you and are giving much thought to the summer ahead. We are asking ourselves many questions: Will we open at all? How do we open safely? What can we offer under these restricted conditions? At the moment we are taking one day at a time and will inform you, our fabulous farm friends as soon as we have a definitive plan.

Rose Parade 2020

What do Lavender Growers do when the lavender is asleepy in the field?  They decorate floats for the Rose Parade in Pasadena, California.

The 2020 theme was "The Power of Hope". This was our third year working with AES covered with glue and flowers in decorating China Airlines, Pasadena 2020 Womens Rights (Won Best of Theme) and Honda.

Lavender Update:

Farming is never easy at the best of times. Our plants should be green and growing now but after an unusually wet fall and winter and now a wet spring, many of our plants appear damaged.  Lavender thrives in a well-drained soil, but when precipitation becomes inordinate plants suffer.  We have heard from many gardeners and other lavender farmers across Canada and the U.S. that are also experiencing the same loss after this winter’s polar vortex. Our reaction plan, the angustifolia we are pruning back and a large number of the lavandins will need removal and replacement.  This will be a year to propagate cuttings from the less damaged plants and plan for the future.
Over the 18 years that we have welcomed people to our farm (our home) it has always been our goal to offer the best of what we do. We will not be capable of representing ourselves at those standards in 2019.  
 We will truly miss our contact with our loyal customer base and new visitor friendships not yet cultivated. Our decision not to be open this year was not an easy one to make.
Thank you for your support and understanding💜
