TOUR LAVENDER LOCATIONS, each with its own selection of different varieties of lavender, and each with its own activities arranged for the event. At lavender farms, you can cut your own bouquets of fresh lavender; at nurseries, you can purchase specialty lavender plants and speak to experts on growing and cultivating lavender. Each location has special events planned for the festive weekend.

Carol and Charles Tannenbaum manage their small lavender farm in the McKenzie River Valley about ten miles east of Springfield, Oregon. Located among the pastoral beauty of hazelnut orchards and pastures of grazing cattle or romping horses, the farm adds bright color and sweet aromas to the summer experience of the Valley. Carol had gardened for many years before they started the lavender venture in 2003. In 2011 we celebrated the opening of our Lavender Labyrinth. Join us for a meditative walk through our lavender field beside the beautiful McKenzie River.
Lavender varieties include Lavandula x intermedia cultivars: 'Grosso', 'Abrialii', and 'Provence' and Lavandula angustifolia cultivars: 'Hidcote' and 'Royal Velvet'. The farm's specialty lavender products include: 'Grosso' essential oil and hydrosol, handmade lavender soaps and lotion, organza sachets in various colors, dried floral bunches, colorful ribbon-woven wands, culinary lavender, dried buds and fresh bouquets in season. The farm is open to visitors during the Lavender Festival including the Friday before and will offer u-cut lavender, lavender plants, and lavender lemonade and treats. Artisan vendors will be selling handcrafted skin care products, jewelry, knitted scarves and garments, garden art and planters. Food and beverages are available or bring a picnic. A petting zoo will delight the kids. Relax by the river and enjoy live music to soothe your senses. Also open by appointment at (541) 736-8575 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Directions: At Eugene/Springfield from I-5, take Hwy 126 east to 40882 McKenzie Hwy (between milepost 15 & 16).
