You would think that after we got those 3,000 lavender babies in the ground, we could rest. HA! Silly me hoped for a second - but don't get me wrong, watching these lavender plants grow, and our dreams come true is pretty satisfying.
We are always planning, and although we have the 'Lavender Lounge' onsite, it was more of a place for me to work and produce our products and hide out. We had planned to have our grand opening at our farm and Lavender Lounge + Boutique next year. But alas, that was out of our control, and since this farm was built on a whim, so was everything else.
We were flattered to be asked to be part of the Field of Dreams In the Hills Magazine feature that highlighted all the fantastic lavender and sunflower farms in our area (WHO KNEW!). If you want a day trip this summer (check their opening dates and time), here are some of our area's great lavender and sunflower farms.

The day the online article from In the Hills launched, we had people showing up, and instead of turning them away, we decided that we must now open. So it has been busy here prepping the space as a store and getting road signs up.
We proudly announce that we are open Fridays + Saturdays from 10 am to 4 pm. Please remember that our 3,000 lavender plants are new, so there is no big purple field for you to take photos in. However, you can check out a lavender farm that is just starting and see how it grows! We have also set up our Lavender Lounge + Boutique with all the products we make and sell. We plan to have some events out here, maybe a Make your Own infused oils day....so stay tuned as we work through this day by day and stage by stage! This is all new to us!
Visiting our farm is $5.00 per person. All dogs must be on a leash, and you must clean up after them. Please note we have three dogs on site (Luna is a Princess so you won't see her in the fields), but our 150-pound beast Bruno and our ten-pounder Nova will be out and about - so if your dogs do not like dogs, please leave them at home.
We look forward to seeing you at Hereward Farms and love bringing you along on our journey of making products from farm to skin.
