About this event

Sunshine Lavender Farm's June Bloom Experience. Register today. New workshops!

You're invited to enjoy the farm for June Bloom. A private residence and a working farm since 2000, come to relax, inhale and experience the sweet, soothing fragrance of lavender.

June Bloom is your opportunity to get out into the country, reconnect with your family and friends, enjoy the fresh country air, this charming farm and just breathe. 

Outdoor experiences feel easier these days and we're excited to open the farm to you, your family and friends. You must reserve a timed ticket to visit the farm. Choose General Admission to sign up for time on the farm as you wish. While you're here, maybe take a farm tour with the owners to learn how to plant, harvest and preserve this amazing, soothing and sweetly scented herb. Tours will happen throughout the day.

You may also select from list of fun workshops requiring specific tickets. Get the details:

NEW this year!

  • Cooper-Lasley Farm. Young farmers, Daniel, Allison and their children, Rhett and Iva will offer seasonal produce and protein at their pop-up farm stand, so bring your market basket and cooler. Get farmyard photos for a donation with some of their animals while learning how some of the most flavorful and nutritious local food is grown and raised right down the road.
  • Water and the Well with owner Allie Doiron. Join Allie for yoga on the farm! She's a registered dietitian, a registered yoga teacher and a certified personal trainer. Each yoga class will vary based on the time of day it is offered. Choose your fav - or two! Of course, there's a soothing lavender-y experience included with each session with time to chat up your wellness with Allie.

BACK this year! Come to craft with lavender with the assistance of farm Ambassadors. Nab one of the limited spots to paint a barn quilt square for your garden or home. Also back, make a glass blown hummingbird feeder.

Discover hundreds of lavender plants and proven varieties for southern gardens ready to take root in your yard or a favorite container. You may wish to visit the shiny new Lavender Love Shop & Farm Market which will be stocked with handmade lavender items lovingly made in small batches to soothe body & soul, for the garden, gifts, home and weddings too.

Lavender items are created from the crop grown using natural practices where no synthetic chemicals, herbicides or pesticides are used. You will find many one-of-a-kind items unique to Sunshine Lavender Farm.

More details:

  • Paint a barn quilt square! For your garden space, a porch or for indoors, when you join this 2-hour workshop, you will choose from a variety of ready-to-paint designs and paint colors to create your very own 24-inch x 24-inch quilt square art at the farm. With the guidance from a local expert, this workshop is suited for adults and for children who will be accompanied by an adult. Space is limited. Register TODAY. Your General Admission ticket is included in the workshop fee.
  • Be a glassblower! Back by popular demand! A local master glass expert will be on the farm again. During June Bloom, learn about glassblowing with three other guests, choose your color combination and create your very own bird feeder. Space is very limited. Register TODAY. Your General Admission ticket is included in the workshop fee.
  • Create a fresh lavender wand, basket or mini wreath (fondly called a fairy crown by some) from various shades of sweetly scented fresh lavender stems and create a sachet with preserved lavender to take home. Your General Admission ticket is included in the workshop fee.
  • Pre-order farm fresh snack and lunch items from our exclusive June Bloom caterer. You'll discover lavender-themed treats from The Picnic Basket Catering folks rave about year after year.  Pre-order lunches as an individual or as a group on a single tab.

  • The Orange County Master Gardeners will help answer your plant, shrub and tree questions too. These volunteers are a wealth of knowledge! Special thanks to Orange County Cooperative Extension for their long-time support of this event.
  • The Orange County Beekeepers Association will join in too! They're an all volunteer member driven group in our community dedicated to raising awareness and appreciation of honey bees and other insect pollinators. They fundraise to provide financial support for research directed toward improving honey bee health, sustainable beekeeping, honey production and other areas of apicultural practice.
  • Calling all artists! Painters, are you looking for a plein air experience? Need a place to share your music? Please consider joining in.
  • The Poultry Palace is home to a lovely flock of hens and will be clucking in celebration of your farm visit too. Due to the concerns centered around the HPAI or avian flu, this area will be fenced off. You may enjoy the flock from afar!

You must get a timed ticket to reserve your spot and any workshops desired for yourself, family and friends. You will be asked to check in upon your arrival. Your support of the farm is greatly appreciated. If Saturday, June 11 is not a fit for your schedule, please consider a visit on Saturday, June 4. Click here for those tickets.

The farm is quite small, and a truly humble home. In its second decade, there are some grandmotherly plants that are holding on (we don't have the heart for taking out plants until they are fully expired). You'll discover that the farm is feeling spry with oodles of young lavender plants, both in the front field and near the barn.

How did this event come about? The open farm weekend was originally planned as a thank you to the farm’s loyal farm friends and a means to invest in those who help to harvest the lavender when the field is ready. The farm is open just a few days a year. In June, during June Bloom, while the lavender is in bloom, and just before the crop is harvested, for Spring and Fall Planting Clinics and in December for the Lavender Holiday Open Farm Day.

For your comfort, bring a quilt or lawn chair. A hat, water bottle (working hard to be a zero waste/no single use plastic event), sunscreen, garden shears and of course your camera too.

No smoking on the farm. No pets, please.

We look forward to seeing you on the farm soon!

FAQ's

What are parking options at the event?

Carpooling is encouraged since parking is at a premium on the farm. Drive slowly, look out for other farm guests on the property and make every effort to park your vehicle efficiently.

I require assistance walking. Is this an event for me?

Farm Ambassadors will help you with nearby parking. Most activities occur in a small area on the farm where the ground is mostly even. With assistance from a family member or a friend to offer support, you may experience the lavender farm too.

Is this a family-friendly event?

Kids of all ages enjoy the farm! KIDS up to age 5 are FREE. No pets, please.

What should I bring?

Bring your lawn chair or picnic blanket, especially if you're participating in the Lavender Workshop. Bring your hat, sunscreen, garden shears, camera and water bottle (working hard to be a zero waste/no single use plastic event).

What if my plans change and I'm unable to attend? We hope that this doesn't happen! In the event that you cannot attend, please update your status in Eventbrite so that another lavender lover may join in the weekend's festivities.

What else should I be aware of?

Your safety while on the farm is a top priority. The farm respects current COVID expectations and CDC guidelines. All workshops will limit the number of participants, activities will happen in outdoor spaces and will employ health and safety protocols.
