Mt. Shasta Lavender Farms is a working farm and seasonal destination where the views of Mt. Shasta are as intoxicating as the fragrance from the purple fields. There are 7 acres with two kinds of lavender and upon your arrival you’ll be given a basket and scissors so you can cut your own. The owners will show you how to dry it, answer any questions you might have and even serve you some delightful lavender lemonade.
Mt. Shasta Lavender Farms, located twenty minutes north of Mt. Shasta City, California, on a 3500 ft. sunny slope, grows two types of lavender for oil, ornamentation, and culinary use. We now invite visitors seasonally and by appointment to cut lavender and to enjoy the magnificent views.
The lavender is watered from a deep well of naturally carbonated water with the same pH as rain water. It thrives in well-drained volcanic soil and enjoys a full southwestern exposure. Lavender is an extraordinarily versatile plant, known for its calming effect in aromatherapy. It also has antiseptic properties and is known to discourage insects. Mostly, it is enjoyed for its beauty and long-lasting fragrance. This ancient plant is making a modern-day comeback—perhaps to help calm a jittery and uncertain world.
