I just did a blog about availability of visits to our farm or "farmette" as I like to call it because we are a small lavender farm. We are not set up for large argrotourism events. However, we are interested in any garden tours that might be available for next season (2019) to share our fields and grounds.
This is a way we thought we could share our fields and also our natural wildflower meadow and other plants. We are working towards turning grass into meadows! We started a test plot this year and it has done amazing! We'd be happy to show people how we dry our lavender and our drying racks and also will have some various products on display.
If anyone has info on any such tours or garden clubs intersted in the Monroe County Michigan area please contact us through our contact form or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are looking to set up for next season.
Keep in mind we are a smaller farm and will need to stagger visits, depending how large he group, to allow only smaller groups (possibly 10-15 people at one time). Parking is limited, although we are across the street from a large park with parking.
More Info for Garden Clubs or Tours:
I would like to let you know we have our own small lavender farm right on the outskirts of Monroe. We have over 300 plants of different varieties of lavender and also a wildflower meadow/zinnia meadow with more extensive planting for next year.
We fill another niche with our planting. We do a lot of floral design and weddings and are working on growing all our own flowers our dried floral arrangements. We have a very active online store for traditional lavender products and floral designs. We also are a vendor at the The Vintage Market Home in Downtown Wyandotte (new vintage retailer). We were also featured on Toledo News 24 on Mother's Day! www.lavenderrosefarms.com is our website.
We would love to be involved with any garden tours next season. Late June to mid July is the best time to see lavender in bloom.
