Evergreen Lavender Farm is a family owned business located in the rural community of Evergreen in Appomattox County, Virginia. In 2009, the farm began to transition from cut flower production to field grown lavender. The lavender harvested is used for our handmade sachets, eye pillows, lotions, and soaps. 'Provence' is our only culinary lavender, but other culinary varietes will be planted this fall. After July 28th, the farm is closed because the lavender has been cut, however if you would like to visit, please make an appointment. Lavender is not our only horticultural component, for there are several flower gardens to see. The farm will be offering scheduled workshops for successful planting of lavender, creating a lavender wreath, and making your own lotion, so "like" us on Facebook to know when they are or check back to our website. The farm is a wonderful outdoor venue to celebrate your special occasion, but remember, we are a farm, not a country club! We have many plans and are hopeful that visitors will discover Evergreen Lavender Farm as a relaxing, beautiful, and educational experience.
