We're excited to announce the start of our English lavender bloom! Our English lavender blooms first, typically in mid-June. This year, the bloom arrived early. The English bloom is significantly smaller than our French bloom. We currently have approximately 4 acres in bloom In order to ensure social distancing and help control traffic flow, tickets will be sold in advance. Each time slot is 90 minutes.
Although the English is smaller, there is a wonderful variety of lavender plants. Did you know lavender comes in many different colors? We grow over 20 varieties in all types of color such as white, pale blue, pink, purple, light purple, dark purple. Some English lavenders grow to about 1-2 feet tall but some varieties are even taller and they all have varying traits. At its peak bloom, we harvest it for fresh and dried bunches.

Our French lavender is still in full bloom! We’ve started cutting it back for fresh and dried bunches so the fields are getting progressively smaller. The full bloom will last thru the weekend. Come now so you don’t miss your chance to see our lovely lavender fields! We’ve completely cut all of the English lavender back. We’re hoping to see a small second English bloom later on at the end of summer.
July 6th, 2018:
We are very happy to announce that our French lavender has begun blooming! Our French lavender fields have a fragrant, floral aroma. Come see (and smell!) for yourself. Please note, we start to cut our lavender when the flowers reach their peak for fresh and dried bunches, so, expect the fields to get progressively smaller during this bloom time. We’ll continue to post updates as the bloom progresses. Most of our English lavender has been cut and we hope to see a small second English bloom at the end of the summer. Keep in mind the below reminders while visiting our farm!
The lavender has started to wake up! The plants are now turning from grey to green. They are getting water when the soil is dry, however, we’ve seen quite a bit of rain on the North Fork so Mother Nature has been taking care of the watering for us. We planted an area of new lavender plants this year which are soaking up the water for growth. It is now just a waiting game until the lavender buds start to bloom! By the looks of it, we are on schedule to expect the bloom in mid-June. Stay tuned for more updates.
Spring has officially sprung on the lavender farm! We’re preparing for the upcoming season and are anxiously awaiting the bloom as we know you are too. Currently the lavender is dormant and should be waking up soon. We are expecting the first Lavender bloom in mid-June. However, the exact timing is in the hands of Mother Nature. Last year we saw our first English Bloom on June 15th, our French bloom on June 30th, and a second, smaller English bloom on September 1st. Each bloom typically lasts 2-2.5 weeks but in order for us to cut the lavender when the flowers are ready for bunches we start cutting to harvest after the first week. As you prepare for your summer trips out to our North Fork Lavender farm this summer keep in mind the below reminders and stay tuned here for updates on the bloom!

We are delighted to announce that our 2017 Lavender bloom has begun!Currently, we have our beautiful English Lavender in bloom (south field). As the season progresses, our French varietals will begin their flowering. As you may know, different sections of our 17 acreage bloom at different times. We cut the flowers once they are ready to be harvested and made in bunches. However, there is still time to admire (and inhale) the lavender before it's cut.
We can't wait to welcome you back, we hope you enjoy the view!
See you soon,
