5th Annual Lavender Festival!  - June 15, 2019

 

 Click here to get tickets!- Admission tickets and make-n-take tickets are still available. U-picks are sold out. We limit u-picks so all can enjoy the lavender.

Interested in Volunteering for our festival? Check out information at bottom of festival information.

 It is going to be the best ever at the largest lavender farm in Georgia! we have about 2,000 blooming Lavender plants on one farm! That is amazing in Georgia, since lavender does not like our hot humid summers, large amount of rain, nor our Georgia clay! So it is a true miracle to see our blooming lavender. Come and see our beautiful lavender gardens, and get a small glimpse of the South France right here in our backyard.

Enjoy the lavender day, music, treats, and one of a kind art treasures!
