FAQ--Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT METHODS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
Credit, debit, cash, Apple Pay and local check are accepted in the farm boutique.
ARE DOGS AND OTHER PETS WELCOME AT YOUR FARM?
If you are visiting with a dog or other pet, please plan to walk them on a leash only in the parking areas. Though we love pets, they are not allowed in the lavender fields, the farm boutique, or in the common areas around the boutique. If you have a registered service animal, please announce it as such in the farm boutique. Emotional support, therapy, comfort, or companion animals are welcome in the parking areas only. Thanks.
HOW DOES LAVENDER U-PICK WORK?
We provide scissors, baskets and instructions explaining how to cut, where to cut and what amount of lavender constitutes a U-pick bundle--a chunky handful of stems in an 8" zip tie for $15. You are free to choose from the lavender and other flowers in bloom during your visit. We provide complimentary ribbon to give your bouquets that finishing touch. Most days we offer a selection of pre-cut lavender bundles for those who don't wish to cut their own. Click here for more info.
