Lavender Hills of Kentucky is a family owned and operated lavender farm established in 2005. Located in the northern Kentucky county of Bracken, this family farm was purchased in 1965 with tobacco and cattle being the main source of income. Now 50+ years later, our goals have changed to include the production of lavender.
Three generations have come together to begin the first commercial lavender farm in the state. Lavender is a lovely flower used for many decorative items as well as an herb used in a variety of recipes from entrees to desserts.
Our first year consisted of plans and plantings. We established our first field with Grosso plants in June 2005 with our first harvest in June 2006. We grew to have over 1000 lavender plants and 22 varieties.
Our on-farm gift shop also opened in 2006, and we carry a wide variety of lavender products for the kitchen, bedroom, and bath. We also carry cleaning products, culinary products, and beauty products. Fresh lavender is available during June and July, and our lovely dried bundles are available all year round. These can be found on this site through our gift shop.
Visitors are welcome during our season from the beginning of June till the end of October to view our field and our variety bed containing varieties in blues, pinks, purples, yellows, and whites.
Our fields were devastated during the back-to-back harsh winters of 2013-2014. We have since replanted approximately 150-200 plants to continue our product line. Please check the farm update below.
We are currently members of the Herb Growing and Marketing Network, the River Valley Agritourism Alliance, and Kentucky Proud. We gladly accept Cash or Personal/Business checks for any transaction and credit cards when online service is available.
When we first planted in 2005, we were extremely lucky to keep our field productive
for eight years with very few weather issues. We expanded to 1000 lavender plants and
over 100 lavender products in our gift shop.
However, the back-to-back winters of 2013 and 2014 killed all of our plants, and we
Since then we have struggled to reestablish our field plants. We plant and replant in the
hopes of getting those beautiful rows of blooms again.
Our heart is in it, but the weather has not been cooperating with us. We have only had one good
harvest since. The wet weather, warm Februarys, and cold Aprils is a formula for spotty, damaged
lavender, which results in spotty blooms and staggered bloom times.
We're still here, though!
While we have been dealing with Mother Nature, we have also been adding products to our shop, creating new workshops, and booking more lavender luncheons. These do require advance scheduling.
We now have an herbal tea garden planted behind the gift shop and will offer a workshop on creating herbal tea blends again this season. Our shop has several herbal teas to choose from.
One of our most popular new workshops has been the Spa Box Workshop. Groups may schedule to create and package four spa products to take home while learning about the natural ingredients that go into them.
It is our Lavender Luncheon, though, that has been the choice of most of our customers; and we appreciate you visiting more than once and bringing a whole new group of friends!
Our season begins June 6, 2020. Please follow us on Facebook for further updates and our 2020 event schedule.
To Our Photographer Friends,
We appreciate all the interest you have shown in our lavender venture. You have given us so many ideas!
We want you to know that we have been trying for three years to plant a special field just for photo shoots. We have the design. One year we had the land mowed. Then the rains came. Another year we had the land leveled. Then the rains continued. The land wasn't dry enough to plant.
The delays have just given us more time to plan and refine our vision. Please keep your fingers crossed that this is the year the vision becomes a reality.
