That's correct, Lavender Falls Farm opened its doors at 10am this morning to the public. We will be open from 10am to 10pm the entire month of June. Come hungry, come thirsty, and come with the need for a stress free day. Parking is our biggest concern, so bear with us and arrive early with a fully loaded car. The cafe has lite menu items as well as lavender tea, lemonade and coffee. The bar is fully stocked with your favorite wines and beers. Don't forget to try a lavender champaign! Check back daily, as our special events will be posted. Here are some of our favorites:
1. Twilight at the falls, every evening from 6-10. There will be live music on special dates
2. Lavender crafts on the pavilion. Once the lavender is ready for harvest (starting June 7), we will have classes in the afternoon on wreath making, lavender wand making, and make your own bundles.
3. Bundles and braids. Have your hair braided with sprigs of Lavender and babies breath. Great for mothers and daughters.
Once the harvest has started, wander down to the waterfall and learn about steam distillation. This is how we get the oils out of the lavender flowers.
Finally... How do you get here? Ignore google and your iPhone. From the corner of Mt Vernon (hwy 14) and Nicolas Rd (hwy M) in Nixa, go south toward Jamesville (7 miles). Once you cross the James River, the farm is the third driveway on the left. Watch for the signs and drive slow pulling in. We will try and help you find a spot to park, so bear with us.
Cant wait ant to see you! Also, feel free to turn off you cellphone and enjoy, but if you do take pics, feel free to check in at the farm on Facebook.
