Red Oak Lavender Farm is the largest and open to the public lavender farm in North Georgia. Among the beautiful mountains and valleys of Dahlonega, Georgia with grapevines and wineries, lavender seemed the perfect crop to grow. We grow about 2,000 lavender plants of over twenty different varieties of lavender from the famous Buena Vista and Royal Velvet culinary variety to the popular Grosso lavender with its long stems and pungent smell. We have plans to fill our acres with lavender for all to visit and enjoy the beauty and smell of lavender. We also have a beautiful gazebo to sit in and view the fields, as well as a wild flower garden. In 2018 we are adding helichrysum flowers (noted as the everlasting flower) in two new fields. We will be distilling this flower to make our skin cream.
Please note that most United States Lavender Farms are simple farms with a farm house and different test gardens that grow lavender. In Georgia it is very difficult to grow lavender due to our acidic clay soil and our humidity and cannot grow the rows and rows of lavender you see in well known pictures when lavender comes to mind to most people. But we do our best and have created a miracle here in Georgia to grow the lavender we do in one place. *All of our lavender is grown organically and tended to by hand to provide the highest quality of our lavender products.
We also raise our own bees right here in our lavender field for the highest of all quality honey - "Lavender honey" and not just infused, but lavender honey made by the bees!
