Welcome to Bald Butte Lavender Farm
Coming in 2023
During the past two years we have visited numerous lavender farms in the Pacific Northwest. The growers graciously provided their valuable time while sharing their wealth of experience and providing us with invaluable insights. In particular, we greatly appreciate the advice and guidance provided by Maggie Smith (Fleur de Provence Lavender Farm, Mead. WA), Tammy Lewis (Flannigan Creek Flower Farm, Viola, ID), Joe Downs (The Lavender Boutique, Wenatchee, WA), and Chris Mulder (Barn Owl Nursery, Wilsonville, OR).
Bald Butte Lavender Farm is located in Whitman County on the Palouse Prairie in southeastern Washington. On our 3-acre farm we produce fresh and dried lavender bundles, live lavender plants, dried culinary lavender, and hand-made lavender crafts. Last year we sold our lavender products at local Farmers Markets (Moscow and Troy, Idaho), the Artisan’s Barn Winter Market (Uniontown, Washington), and the Moscow Winter Market at the 1912 Center.
Our website is based on field experience, internet research, and conversations with other lavender growers. On our website pages we have links to products used while developing our farm. We don’t endorse those products, but instead offer them as suggestions. In general, those products are also available on-line in smaller or larger quantities, and in sizes and brands that could better suit your needs and budget.
