All is well at Lavender Ridge as we are gearing up to reopen for the year. On Friday, April 6th, we will OPEN for the year.
Our hours are 9-5 and the café is open from 11-3. Although the lavender is not blooming, the beds are bursting with color after the much needed rains we have been getting.
The weather is continuing to be a prime time for a visit to the farm. We hope to see you.
Join us in the Café for lunch and enjoy the beauty that surrounds the screened in dining room. Along with our usual menu there will be a special each week. We will post the special on our facebook page each week.
This week’s special is:

We will be closed on Sunday, April 8th for Easter.
