Bloom information: English Lavender typically blooms middle of June into July. The best time to see the French Lavender in color/full bloom mid-summer (July) . We harvest our English lavender for culinary. Dry and distill our French lavender for dried flower bouquets and our lavender essential oil which we use in our products that can be found in our Farm Store. As the season progresses there is less lavender flowers on the plants due to harvesting before the flowers dry on the plants. We typically have lavender flowers on the plant somewhere on the farm during the summer season. Our 2022 Lavender crop has been harvested.
We are a Certified Pennsylvania Pollinator Garden. This help feed our bees and keeps bloom interest throughout the flowering season on our farm.
Our farm store showcases many of the wonderful products we make with our lavender. At our shop, you’ll find all of our handcrafted lavender based products, as well as items created by local artisans, all proudly made in the USA. Many of the artists that have attended our lavender festivals in the past have their crafts available for sale in our farm store, also. We concentrate on our farm store and the beautiful items we can offer our customers year round no longer holding a one day lavender festival.
We are centrally located to Harrisburg, Allentown, Wilkes-Barre, and Lancaster. You can use Google Map to obtain directions to our farm. Check out Schuylkill.org to find other things to do in our area.
