Yes, it's true. We've started a Lavender Farm in Port Murray, NJ which is located in beautiful Warren County. Our mission is to create an oasis of peace and tranquility where the heavenly scent of lavender and the picturesque rows of purples, blues and pinks will take away the stress of life and replace it with a sense of serenity and well-being. We are committed to growing our lavender using organic methods without the use of chemical pesticides and herbicides.
In May of 2015 we planted approximately 1300 plants. It is our goal to continue growing our farm each year. We currently have several cultivars of English and French. Lavender typically takes 3-5 years to fully mature and can get as tall as 50" and some taller depending on the cultivar.
We hope to grow our farm into a favorite destination where visitors can "cut your own" lavender when in season and visit our lavender farm stand. We offer a variety of natural, handmade artisan lavender products including bath and body, household, culinary, teas, sachets, wreaths, unique gifts, home and garden decor and of course, lavender bundles both fresh (when in season and while supplies last) and dry as well as lavender buds. We also offer two types of honey. Pure 100% natural honey from our hives and a yummy lavender infused organic honey we import from Oregon State. If you've never tried it, that alone is worth the trip. And, let's not forget fresh organic eggs from our happy pasture raised hens of the City Girl Flock.
Our farm is the idyllic setting for artists and photographers to capture the beauty of the lavender field and our beautiful surroundings.
We are also excited to offer our property for private functions including weddings and special events. If you're planning a small intimate gathering and are looking for a beautiful and uniquely special location please contact us to discuss your vision.
We invite you to join us at this little slice of heaven we call home. Pack a picnic basket, bring a blanket or sit in the gazebo or in the pergola and enjoy the peace and tranquility. Please like us on Facebook, follow us on Instagram and join our Newsletter List to get the latest news on our progress as well as information on future events at Orchard View Lavender Farm. We look forward to seeing you on the farm.
