Pelindaba Lavender farm on San Juan Island Pelindaba Lavender farm on San Juan Island Lavender farm


Although the best time to see the fields at the “peak of purpleness” is July – August, there are many things to do at the farm May – October. We would suggest allowing at least 1-2 hours for your visit. During your visit be sure to…

- Stroll through our organically certified fields.

- Take a farm tour with Pelindaba Lavender Farm’s owner/founder Stephen Robins during July through September.

- Browse the over 200 lavender products we handcraft on the farm at our Gatehouse Farm Store.

- Explore the Demonstration Garden where we cultivate over 50 different varieties of lavender. Blooming begins in early May and some varieties are still in bloom in October!

- Visit the Distillery and Exhibits to learn how we distill the lavender essential oil from the plant — and about it’s many and diverse uses.

- Make your own beautiful lavender crafts in the Craft Workshop in July and August.

- Harvest your own organic lavender bouquets in the Cutting Field.

- Take home some lavender plants for your own garden from the Nursery.

- Bring a Picnic to enjoy and be sure try our lavender lemonade, iced tea, ice cream (gluten-free) or cookies!
