About Adrienne and Don
Get to Know Us
In 2012, when the future of our family’s 10-acre farm came into question, we saw the opportunity to fulfill our dream of sustainable living and to share our vision with a greater community. Once a popular “pick-your-own-raspberry” farm, our family’s crop was demolished by the ever-increasing deer population. In our search for a deer-resistant crop, we discovered Lavender. The more we learned, the more enchanted we became with Lavender for its beauty, variety, healthful properties, and resilience. We decided to become lavender farmers.
From our first crop of lavender in 2013
Seven varieties of lavender at the farm
In 2013, we planted our first crop of lavender on our sunny hilltop and it thrived beautifully. Beehives were brought in to pollinate our plants, and WWOOF helpers came to help us build our dreams. Years later, we have seven different varieties of lavender, a Lavender Labyrinth, and a lovely line of lavender products. All of our products are made by hand, here on the farm. Our honey and beeswax products come from Sweet Cheeks Apiaries. Everything is grown organically with absolutely no pesticides or chemical fertilizers.
How we chose our name
Why "Mad Lavender?"
We named our farm “Mad Lavender” as a nod to Lewis Carroll, ever calling us to inject a dose of fun and frabousity into our creations on the farm. Imagine sipping lavender lemonade under a flowering geodesic dome, cuddling baby Dwarf Nigerian goats, chickens that lay blue eggs, and taking a leisurely walk through a lavender labyrinth in full bloom. Our Tiny Shop is full of locally made artisanal lavender gifts and goodies. We invite you to come and enjoy!
