The Lavender Farm of Shallowater Opens This Weekend!
If you are looking for the perfect way to start off the weekend, then look no further than the Summer opening of The Lavender Farm! The sea of gorgeous purple blooms dancing in the West Texas wind is an amazing sight to see and when you add in the intoxicating scent of lavender, you are guaranteed to find to find some reprieve from the stresses of daily life.
Run by the Hill family, this unique retreat found in the northwest corner of Lubbock County is a one-of-a-kind experience that is fun for the whole family. Ray Hill, one of the owners of the farm, notes that "we really just want everyone to get the whole farm experience on Saturday. We've got partial blooms on the plants. We'll have food trucks and Burklee Hill will be here. We also have a real fun family that's going to bring out some of their lambs."
Not only that, but you can purchase all of their wonderful lavender products during your visit! "Our essential oil is probably one of our biggest sellers because the properties of essential oil make you naturally calm down. In today's world I think we all need a little bit of relaxation and calmness." They also have soaps, lotions, candles, and their signature linen spray. "Spray it on your bedsheets and it will put you to sleep in a hurry," Hill said.
You can even buy live lavender plants to put in your own garden and they will have their fresh bundles available. Opening day is this Saturday June 25, 2022 from 10AM to 2PM. They will also be open on Tuesday and Thursday evenings for the next two weeks from 6:30PM to 8PM. These dates include June 28, June 30, July 5, and July 7, 2022. Visiting the farm is completely free! Just make sure to wear your farm shoes!
They are located at 4801 NCR 1500 in Shallowater, Texas and they can be reached at (806) 786-1447. You can also purchase their products and find more information on their website or you can visit their booth at the Wolfforth Farmers Market now through October!
