Throughout June and July we hold wreath making classes at the farm. For a fee of $50 you can sit down under the shade and our talented and ever-so-charming instructor Lorrie will impart her wreath making knowledge with good humor and a glass of lavender lemonade. The results are impressive to say the least. Obviously there is little chance of running out of fresh lavender as we are always available to cut more for the class if the students get a little carried away. ANy wreath making classes this year will be more distanced than those shown in the pictures but they will still be tons of fun!
Paint & Sip
There is an old adage that says if something sounds too good to be true then it probably is… Paint and Sip sounds that way but it really is a thing! Come and see us in the evening, after the visitors are gone and local artist Ashley Mendeswill sit with a small group and demonstrate how to paint in acrylics. It’s a bit more interpretive than paint by numbers but its way more fun than rocket surgery! A selection of local wines and nibbles are on hand to feed your hidden creative side. Space will be limited due to more spaced tables and food this year will be in prepared boxes rather than the previous buffet style.
Dinner in the Lavender
Our first dinner was in June 2018 and it was incredible! There is something entirely surreal about dining in the middle of a field of lavender! We had intended to tread lightly and have one dinner in June and a second in July in 2018. Sadly, smoke from wildfires put an end to our dining season after the first event. In 2020, as you can imagine, the dinners could not proceed. We are hopeful that we can find a way to make these work next summer. Please check back here for information on when we will be able to resume these great events in conjunction with the incredible Truffle Pig Craft Kitchen .

Events at the Farm
Events at the farm are usually held in June and July when we are open to the public. We try to expand the range of events each year and usually have “Dinner in the Lavender” dates and workshops with Paula Rice of Sunbird where attendees carve a block and use it in the class to print on fabric. Our wreath making classes are a firm favorite and, of course, our Paint & Sip series, a great evening adventure with Ashley Mendes. This years events went really well and for one paint and sip class we moved the event to Sunday morning to beat the heat.Below are some examples and pictures of past events.
The Rogue Valley never seems bigger than when you have to drive from one side to the other. To make our products more accessible we bring our products to you, or rather to your local farmers and growers markets or even local events. The table below will let you know what is going on and when we will be in your neck of the woods for markets or shows. Please check back now and then as this list is updated regularly. As restrictions largely dictate our schedule we will be updating this page often.
Events All Over
Visiting the Farm in the second summer of COVID-19
Summer of 2021 was outstanding! While we began the season with a booking system for our festivals in June and July, the govenors removal of the need to wear masks and limit visitor numbers allowed us to open without restriction and it was glorious to be out in the field with so many visitors.The heat definately caused issues for us and, as it turned out, it shortened our season by a week or so at either end and we scrambled to get the harvest in. We are enormously grateful to the visitors, new and returning who came to our little patch of purple and brought family and friends and enjoyed the sights and smells that only lavender can provide in such abundance.
During our summer season (June & July) we have a number of fun events. When these are available the booking links will be listed below.
