Welcome to Hillcrest Lavender Farm, LLC
Looking for a great family outing?
Here at Hillcrest Lavender Farm, we are family friendly and are renowned for our fresh cut lavender along with our country-style service. Our farm is open for u-pick when the lavender starts blooming. The u-pick season generally run from mid-July to mid-August but is weather dependent. Stay updated on harvest time by following us on our Instagram or Facebook pages.
All of our products on our website are available for curbside pickup or shipping.
We wanted to share with you the progress of the lavender this season.
From the mid west to the east coast many lavender growers have seen their fields of lavender not wake up. Some of our plants survived while it appears many did not. Is it silly to hold out hope at this point? But we are still hopeful we'll see something with a hard trimming of the plants.
That being said, we go on!
We had placed an order last fall for 800 plants to arrive this spring. They are in the ground and starting to grow! We've ordered even more to arrive very soon!
While it seems this years u-pick is on hold there is still plenty to see if you'd like to stop up and visit. The gift shop is open daily 10-4pm. We're always happy to talk to you about lavender and you may see some planting happening. We have LOTS of dried lavender Eric put up last year that he will be distilling soon. I also stored dry lavender for dried bunches in our shop - we have lots!
Our products will continue to be made right here at the farm. As a lot of you are aware, Eric distills our lavender and makes all of our sprays. The lotions, soaps and lip balm have our own essential oil in them. We are thankful we were prepared for this unexpected delay in our lavender plants!
So take a day trip and visit! Sit on the swing, meet our sheep, Beau and Peep (possibly meet our four new lambs!), chat with us about lavender, life, farming or simply enjoy our fantastic view!
We want to thank all of the wonderful people we met who came out to pick in 2021. We hope to see you again soon.
