Mike is getting his bags packed and ready to go as he prepares for his next speaking engagement at the United State Lavender Growers Association Conference due to be held in Richmond, VA Oct 18-20, 2013. He will be sharing the “Purple Haze” story on how we began, trials along the way, and how we have successfully continued to farm the wonderful herb lavender for over 17 years in Sequim, WA. This is shaping up to be a great conference for those who have a love for lavender and want to grow it! There is still time to register and spend a weekend learning about all things lavender!
Recently we were lucky enough to be blessed with a wonderful visit from “foodie” blogger, Elena Fernandez.
Mike had a great time sharing our farm with her and it was a most delightful visit. We thought you might enjoy reading her blog post about her visit to the Purple Haze Lavender Farm!
Penny says now that the lavender has all been harvested, hung, dried and distilled it’s time close up the farm store and take a nap!
But that doesn’t mean that you can’t still pick up your favorite Purple Haze Lavender products when you come through Sequim-just visit us at our Downtown Gift Shop located at 127 W Washington Street….or if you can’t make it to Sequim visit us in our online store and do your shopping there!
If you have always wanted to see how our lavender oil distillation machine works-now is your chance! This weekend we will be distilling at 11:00 am. both Saturday and Sunday at the farm-it’s the last distillation of the season-yeah!!! Summer is winding down and now is the time to get that last lavender ice cream cone and see how we harvest and distill our lavender for oil! Hope to see you at the farm!!!
It’s time for our Annual Sequim Lavender Weekend!!! Join us at Purple Haze!

So pick up your button at any of our farms or online and come on over to see us

We have received a lot of questions about buses this year to tour the farms and the answer is: that due to rising costs Purple Haze WILL be the only farm that will be serviced by a bus. Pick up location will be the same as always at Lavender In the Park-should run about every 15-20 minutes!
Don’t forget there is always a chair waiting for you-see you at the farm!
Seems hard to believe that in just a little over 3 months the lavender will be blooming beautifully and it will be time for Sequim’s Annual Lavender Farm Faire! This event always falls on the third weekend in July (July 19, 20 & 21st, 2013). Check out our new brochure and the wonderful lavender artwork by Lee Oskar !
Make your plans now to join us and get your tickets early-you will save $5.00 ea.!! You don’t want to miss that Lavender Margarita and the best music in town!!!
P.S. Speaking of music….we have some great NEW acts lined up for our stage this year at Purple Haze….stay tuned for updates!!!
Our next door neighbors, David and Jennifer, have opened a new downtown tasting room just a couple of doors down from our downtown store. It features their wonderful Italian style wines from Wind Rose Cellars. A really nice atmosphere, great appetizers, and a superb line of wines. Rosalind and my favorite is their Dolcetto and the Hunter Red….wait, hold on here; they are ALL fabulous!
