Hello to all of our friends!
We are back and rested from the Ft. Worth Stock Show. Now we are gearing up for another great year at Lavender Ridge Farms! As always, this is planning and preparation time for a new year on the farm. Many of you have asked how the lavender faired through the extreme heat and drought last year. Well, we did lose a good amount of plants, but not to worry, we will replant the missing plants this spring and if there is not enough lavender to go around we will plant plenty of other flowers and herbs so there will be something available to cut.
The farm will reopen for the year on Friday April 6th. Our hours will remain the same as last year. With the exception that we will be closed for Easter Sunday, April 8th.
We will be open Friday-Sunday, 9-5 and

Each year garden clubs, Sunday school classes or girls who just want to have fun, enjoy having the farm all to themselves. We invite you to bring your group for a special day.
Tours are available by reservation only. Groups of 10 or more are welcome on Monday through Thursdays from 9-5. Our calendar does fill up quickly so be sure to call or email us with your dates as soon as possible.
Keep in mind the week before our Lavender Festival (May 21-25) is closed for tours. The cost is $10.00 per person and includes a guided walking tour, 1 bunch of lavender that you cut from the field or what ever is available for cutting at the time of your tour, and of course a refreshing cup of lavender lemonade. If your group would like to have lunch in our Café while here, we can make arrangements for that as well.
This summer we will be introducing a super cool and super fun event at the farm. We are partnering with Weinhof Winery from Muenster and Forrestburg to bring you a great way to spend your lazy days of summer Sunday afternoons. Once a month we will have live music. Wine and picnic/snack baskets will be available for purchase to enjoy while sitting in the shade, listening to local musicians bring us classical guitar, country and jazz and more.
