About US
sunshine lavender farm is a small non-traditional farm growing exclusively lavender. Established in 2000, the farm really took off in the fall of 2002 when family and friends enjoyed the field planting disguised as a party! The farm has been embraced by the community and the idea of fresh lavender in summer and value added lavender products all year long.

Lavender is the herb of devotion, joy and luck, so it is the perfect flower for a wedding or special occasion. The fresh scent is soothing and can even ease headaches and induce sleep. In the garden, lavender repels moles, flies, mosquitoes and deer do not care for it. Lavender planted nearby roses, annuals, vegetables or other "deer candy" will deter them! Like many herbs, lavender is wonderful to cook with. When your recipe calls for rosemary, try lavender instead. It is wonderful in cookies, breads and cakes; in preserves, dressings and sauces and is tasty when grilling chicken, fish and pork.
