Hope Hill Lavender Farm

Vibrant Purples and Greens, and the Serene Scent of Lavender

 

Relax into a paradise for the senses.

Follow your nose and let the soft scent of lavender wafting through the air draw you into Hope Hill Lavender Farm in Pottsville. You’ll immediately begin to relax as you take in the scenic mountain views, framed by fields of the lush purple flowers and vivid greenery. Owners Wendy and Troy originally purchased the farm in 2004 as a home for their two rescue horses. In 2010, they converted the lands from a Christmas Tree Farm to a Lavender Farm. Now, this veteran-owned farm cultivates organically grown lavender for culinary, relaxation, and household purposes.

 

 

Appreciate the peaceful beauty of the lavender flowers while you learn about their life cycle. Pick up a map at the farm store and take a free, self-guided tour of the lavender fields, drying shed, pollinator plants, bees, and farm animals. Or, sign up for a guided tour Saturdays at 11 am in June, July, and August to learn even more about the workings of the farm.

You can’t leave without getting your picture taken in the big purple chair to commemorate the experience. Once the tour is done, head inside of the farm store to browse their selection of hand-crafted lavender products. Purchase top-quality lavender creations like essential oil, soap, candles, teas, vinegars, and more. And you won’t want to miss the chance to try their tasty lavender ice cream or raw organic honey.

 

 

Peak lavender flower bloom is mid-June to July, so check out their summer hours to see the fields in all their splendor. You’ll still catch breathtaking views in August, however, when their new acre-long Sunflower Field blooms. Luckily, once the summer season ends, you won’t have to wait until next year to get your lavender fix. Their farm store is open seasonally throughout the year so you can still access your favorite lavender products. And make sure you check out their website to look for upcoming events. They often hold activities like yoga, wine glass painting, book signings, or workshops for the kids.

We recently visited the farm to stop and smell the lavender. Check out our video to see our trip to the beautiful fields.
