Welcome to Braun's Riverside Lavender Farm, privately owned and operated by Retired Master Gunnery Sergeant Mark Braun and his wife Tammy.
At present, we have just shy of 6,000 lavender plants. About one third of these are Munstead (white, dark and pale). The remainder of our farm is dedicated to Lavender Phenomenal. We love the beauty and color variation of the Munstead and use these plants for craft classes, making wreaths, wedding bouquets and specialty projects. The Lavender Phenomenal, with its heady and strong scent, 24" long stems and large heads are used for fresh bouquets that florists seem to love and are also dried to be used in product.
Braun's Riverside Lavender Farm is proud to be a veteran owned and operated business. A tremendous amount of our personal joy comes from sharing what we have created here with others. From "drop ins" to open farm days, we LOVE VISITORS. We currently have a TENTRR site set up along the banks of the river for guests to book and stay here at the farm "glamping style". We are hoping to add a second site this coming year so that more folks can stay with us. We will keep you posted on this as we progress into the Spring.
In 2019 we are going to have MORE open farm days. We are looking at the second week of June through the third week of July. During these open house days we are planning to have classes to make wreaths and wands. The cost of the classes are $30.00 per person and we will NOT be taking reservations or allotting times. We will set up table areas with everything you need to make your own craft item and provide instructors to assist. We will also be offering "pick your own" for the very first time. Each pick your own customer will be given a lightweight "square" with a hole in the middle. When you have filled that hole with stems- you know you have picked the amount per payment made. We will offer multiple size "forms" for picking which will be priced by size. A specific area will be marked for pick your own customers.
We hope you enjoy a little peek around the farm through our website. If there is something you would like- that we don't have- please email or call us and let us know.
