We will not offer Pick Your Own this year.
Picking your own lavender is a highlight of visiting our farm during peak bloom in June through the second week in July. Since bloom dates vary year to year, we post dates once we see the progress of the flowers. Bunches are determined by the size of a twist-tie for $10 each. Must be 12 years or older, and must be accompanied by a parent, not an appropriate activity for younger children.
About Our Bees
Sunny days fill the lavender with bees, this may seem intimidating. Not to worry—almost immediately you’ll see how bees are calmed by lavender just like we are! Moving with ease and refraining from swatting will keep them content and easygoing! Of course, if you have a bee allergy, take the necessary precautions.
We are excitedly awaiting the July honey harvest, Lavender Honey will be available by the end of July, you can pre-order by buying on our website.
Soleado Lavender Farm is open on weekends and select days seasonally. Our season runs May – July, closed during August, open again in September – November. All open dates are weather dependent, please check the website or call before you visit if there is any question about the weather.
