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:
- Maintain the grounds to be a place of natural beauty by integrating native grasses and flowers.
- Provide a place of relaxation when walking through the beautiful lavender fields.
- Hold special events for the public to enjoy the Lavender experience.
What Visitors Are Saying
“It’s great! A must stop in Loess Hills! Mary is a gem and I love their products. The farm is beautiful with its lavender and butterfly bushes. They have other artisan pieces for sale and sampling the delicious lavender sugar cookies, lemonade and chocolate was a divine treat!”
