Welcome . . .
to Red Oak Lavender Farm LLC
Experts stated we could not grow lavender in Georgia. But when you have a dream to create something so beautiful you do not give up! We now grow 2,000 lavender plants and with our harvested lavender we make the best all natural lavender products that we carry in our farm shop and online. Our products are made here on the farm in small quantities in order to provide you with the freshest possible lavender products. Whereas in most places the products sit in warehouses for maybe up to a year before they are shipped to their stores. Our products are only made with 100% pure lavender, essential oil, never synthetic fragrance. So try some of our products today and smell the difference. *Shipping is always flat rate to provide our customers with the lowest shipping prices possible.

Established in 2014, Red Oak Lavender Farm is located at the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains in historic Dahlonega, Georgia. All the experts told us that lavender could not grow in Georgia, because of our clay soil and high rainfall and humidity, but we have done it with a lot of hard work and a lot of amendments. We now grow about 2,000 lavender plants of twenty different varieties and the largest lavender farm open to the public in Georgia. Do Not expect the rows and rows of lavender as in France or in Washington state. Due to our high humidity and amount of rainfall we must grow in test gardens to allow air flow. We have about 60 rows, each 100 feet long, throughout our 2.5 acres of lavender. This is a lot of lavender for Georgia! I know... it takes a week working in the fields every day all day long to harvest what we have. We also live here, like most lavender growers do. We must keep a careful watch on the conditions of our lavender.
We will have lavender plants for sale beginning in May through June when the ground has warmed up.
Sorry, but we will not have any u-picks days due to all the rain we had over the last year and half. We cannot stress our lavender out, or they can die. This has happened at our farms, like in SC. Come to the farm and see what we have and you might be able to purchase a fresh lavender bundle the week of June 18 - 22nd. To experience fresh lavender in Georgia is a miracle.
