sunshine lavender farm is a small non-traditional farm growing exclusively lavender. The farm began 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.
Fresh lavender (perfect for late May through July weddings or celebrations) and preserved lavender bouquets, lavender plants, hand-crafted lavender bath salts, lavender bed & bath powder, lavender candles, culinary lavender, pure lavender eye pillows, lavender grill & fireplace bundles, lavender hand & body cream with shea butter, lavender lip balm, pure lavender sachets and lavender soap.
We share our farm through farmers' markets and special events. Since our farm is our home and we share a private road with neighbors, our farm is not open to the public.
