Wander the Lavender Fields

The Applegate Valley may be better-known for wine, but an increasing number of lavender fields give this region a Provençal flair.

If you’re a fan, be sure to wander these purple fields and attend the annual Lavender Festivals! You’ll also find lavender products during the Applegate Valley Wine Trail’s Uncorked events.

Applegate River Lavender: U-Pick lavender, all-natural products, lemonade, classes, green grass, clear river, bumble bees, a fragrant field of heaven­—oh, and lavender brownies! Check website for business hours.

The English Lavender Farm: Set on a hillside, you’ll see nothing but lavender and mountain views for miles. Take a lavender wreath-making class, or attend a paint-and-sip event. Lavender products include shea butter, jelly, salves, soaps, oils—and more! Check website for business hours.

Kingfisher Lavender: This recently-planted lavender farm features 2,500 plants representing 21 different species. The farm also specializes in cut-flowers for bouquets. Visit during the Lavender Festival weekends, or make a reservation.

Goodwin Creek Gardens: This farm grows lavender, along with herbs, scented pelargoniums, everlasting flowers and fragrant plants. They also propagate Native American plant species in their nursery. Check website for business hours, or visit during the Lavender Festivals.

“It’s so alive,” says Applegate Lavender Farmer Marcy Rustad. “All summer long, the lavender nearly quakes with bees and butterflies—even lizards  find refuge under the flowers.”
