About the Lavender Farm

In 2005 Tim and Mary Hamer visited the lavender fields of Sequim, WA, during the Sequim Lavender Festival and it was love at first sight.  After much research, their vision of bringing the fresh lavender aroma and beauty to their home in the Loess Hills of Iowa was realized in 2009 when they planted 1,200 lavender sprouts. 

In 2011 the Lavender Farm’s Craft Store opened which features wonderful handmade items from over 40 vendors. In 2013, they started distilling their first lavender oil.

In the years to follow, a greenhouse was constructed, a working windmill was erected, a pergola was added, and the craft store building was expanded to host special event receptions. They continued to add plants and at one time, hosted 4,000 plants and 10 varietals.

In 2022 Tim and Mary officially retired with hopes to travel.  Our family purchased the Lavender Farm with aspirations of continuing their vision: 

    1. Maintain the grounds to be a place of natural beauty by integrating native grasses and flowers.
    2. Provide a place of relaxation when walking through the beautiful lavender fields.
    3. Hold special events for the public to enjoy the Lavender experience.

We are proud members of the US Lavender Growers Association.

NEW OWNERS

Tracy & Chelsea

As new owners of the Loess Hills Lavender Farm, we invite you to come walk through our small fields of lavender. There’s no entrance fee so come experience how lavender can tantalize your senses like few plants can. The Farm is also proud of its conservation acres (CRP) of wildflowers, grasses, and numerous pollinators. Come learn how important pollinators are to our lavender fields as well as crops, trees, and other plants.

We’ve added a fairy garden, gnome garden, troll bridge, educational area for “Birds, Bees & Butterflies”, and a very large chair where the Lavender Giant rests at the end of a hard day’s work.

We’re excited for you to visit and hope to see you soon!

What Visitors Are Saying

Future Plans at the Farm

We’re happy with our additions to the Farm but have plans for the future also!

  • We’d like to have beehives eventually and have talked to several beekeepers. This would allow us to have Lavender-Honey for sale in our store.
  • We plan to plant a new variety of Lavender next spring that will have longer stems than what we currently have in our field. We are very excited about this new variety!
  • We’re hoping to have a small church constructed by the outside wedding ceremony area. It’ll be available for couples to have wedding photos!
  • Down the road (probably several years!) we’d like to produce Lavender Wine.
  • We’d love to possibly add a deck from our venue and a waterfall to the pond. We can dream, right?!
