June is the season for the heavenly scent of Lavender in Oregon's Mt. Hood Territory. Several farms will be showcasing this versatile and fragrant bloom at events in the coming weeks.
All throughout June, the public is invited to visit these four lavender farms, each featuring unique events, field tours and lavender products for purchase, including fresh and dried lavender (of course!). Participating farms include:
This farm is featuring fresh cut and dried English lavender bouquets. You'll find 100 varieties of Oregon grown lavender plants and herbs, culinary and fragrant lavender products, craft demonstrations, special vendors and information on growing, caring for and planting your herbs.
22999 SW Newland Rd. Wilsonville, OR 97070
Visitors have the opportunity to stroll through the demonstration field to learn tips for growing lavender or to enjoy a picnic with a fantastic view of the Willamette Valley. The Ravens Nest Gift Shop is open during these weekends offering lavender product gifts and culinary items.
14950 S Cinnamon Hill Lane, Mulino.
This farm on the banks of the Clackamas River offers so many things to delight the senses. Live music, scrumptious local eats and a plethora of creative and artistic vendors are great additions to their Lavender Shoppe filled with bath and body products, as well as lavender treats to try like ice cream and lemonade. Their wow factor is co-owner Bill's displayed collection of antique cars.
27525 SE Starr Rd. Eagle Creek, OR 97022
The view from this farm that sits along the historic Barlow Road in Oregon City is truly one of a kind. Mt. Hood stands tall in the background of endless rows of fragrant lavender. The view alone makes the visit worth it, but it's the sense of community that draws visitors in year after year. This festival was created to support and provide education on sustainable agriculture in the area and spotlight small Clackamas County businesses... and it has done just that, making an experience not to miss.
