We are a small, family-owned and operated lavender farm that began welcoming visitors in 2011. We are nestled along the Applegate River, 15 miles north of Applegate Lake near the little town of Ruch, Oregon. Our 5-acre farm nurtures 1,000 lavender plants of seven varieties (Ana Luisa, Ms. Katherine, Royal Purple, Alba, Grosso, Gros Bleu and Hidcote Giant), keeping the bees busy during the warm summer season.
We enjoy sharing our farm with the public and never tire of our guests’ smiling faces as they experience the stunning sights and smells of an ocean of purple. Our shop is in a large barn surrounded by shady walnut and maple trees. An open grassy area with a rope swing and picnic tables invites visitors to relax, unwind and escape life’s stresses.
We are committed to sustainable farming practices and minimizing single-use plastic in everything we do. We hand harvest and distill each lavender variety separately in small batches – using only the flowers – allowing the distinct characteristics to shine through. We offer a range of artisanal essential oils and handcrafted lavender products. Refreshing lavender lemonade and treats are also available. Visitors may harvest fresh lavender bundles, or we are happy to prepare it for you. We also offer a variety of informative classes and farm experiences.
Thank you for supporting local family farms -- we look forward to welcoming you soon! Applegate River Lavender Farm is open most weekends Friday – Sunday, 10am-3pm, starting June 17th through early August. Please check our website for specific hours and availability.
We are looking forward to meeting you.
