  • Professional & Portrait Photography Policies

    We are delighted that you are considering Lavender Oaks Farm as the location for your photos. Our General Photography Policies listed below are intended for all guests, but a photography permit is required and must be purchased for those who wish to use Lavender Oaks Farm as a backdrop for posed or directed photography. We ask all photographers to please help us to maintain the integrity of our lavender farm by honoring these policies. They are intended to ensure that Lavender Oaks Farm can fulfill its mission of providing our visitors and community an enjoyable and educational Agritourism experience on our 60 acre farm in a beautiful natural setting of aromatic lavender fields, historic barns, and majestic forest. We love our furry friends, but we do not allow photography with animals.

    ABOUT OUR FARM AND LAVENDER BLOOMING SEASON

    Lavender Oaks Farm is home to 4,000 lavender plants in 9 varieties. Our blooming season begins mid- May, peaks in June, and continues through summer. There is incredible life in our lavender fields during blooming season and it is very common to see several varieties of butterflies, dragonflies, honey bees, bumble bees, and birds sharing a love of lavender, and fluttering about the flower buds in quite a relaxed and dreamy state by the calming scent of this amazing crop. Lavender is an evergreen and quite beautiful year-round, so capturing this plant in any season is breathtaking. In addition to lavender, we grow Cascade Hops that are planted in a unique form creating a frame of gorgeous vines. Our Cascade Hops peak in June and continue to remain an intensely thick verdant green vine until late Fall. Other notable sites found on our farm include: Elegantly restored century-old timber frame barns, 3 log cabins, a ¾ acre pond, trails, winding pathways, wildflowers, a pasture, garden, and an abundance of timeless settings provided by nature.

  • IN THE MOMENT PHOTOGRAPHY

    Photographs are a wonderful way to remember your visit to Lavender Oaks Farm. For your own enjoyment, visitors (including Professional Photographers without clients) are welcome to take in-the- moment photographs of plants, individuals and subjects that capture the events of your visit. These are informal photographs shot spontaneously and quickly without artistic intent. Guests should still observe our General Photography Policies listed below. You may share your photos of our lavender farm on social media outlets, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We would love to be tagged!
