A thriving lavender farm off Highway 101 in Laurel Grove, a small Oregon Coast community located just 4 miles south of Old Town Bandon is for sale. This is a manageable 1 acre farm zoned property with a 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, 2005 manufactured home and garage in a residential area near the walking trails at Lost Lake. If you have any interest in growing lavender on a low maintenance level, this would be a perfect start for you as the infrastructure is already in place including 20,000 square feet of fabric ground cover, a programmable auto drip system for watering and over 1,000 hybrid lavender plants.
“The 8 lavender varieties being grown are ‘Provence’, ‘Dutch’, ‘Super French’, ‘Grosso’, ‘Viridis’ yellow, ‘Madrid’ pink, ‘Willowbridge’ white, and ‘Spanish’ purple. They were chosen for their diversity of scent, color, hardiness, prolific oil production, excellent fresh cut and dried flowers for use in crafts and good flavor for culinary purposes. All of the plants are lavandins (lah-vahn-deens), an X intermedia hybrid which are superior in disease and pest resistance to standard lavender, or ornamentals from the Stoechas branch of the lavender family.” Visit the website Merritt Lavender Farm for more details about the Start up story of the lavender farm.
The Lavender Lady
The owner of the farm is well known in Oregon as “The Lavender Lady”. You can see her at the local farmers markets in Coos Bay and in Bandon. Please note that The Lavender Lady has plans to continue selling her products in the area and is only selling her farm property. She would be willing to make an agreement with the buyers to continue to purchase the crop for her products under certain terms that could be arranged privately and outside of the sale of the property. This being said…the business name, inventory, website and product line are not included in the property sale.
Ways to Make Income
You can make money from a lavender farm simply by the selling the lavender plants wholesale to nurseries, florists, restaurants and supermarkets or you can diversify and create your own product line, sell the plants retail at the farmers markets including dried bouquets and flowers. You can attend local farmers markets, make and sell honey, open up the garage as a retail shop June through September.
There is also an Oregon Lavender Association that provides links to 30 lavender destinations that participate in an annual Lavender Festival in July 13 & 14. I browsed some of these sites and thought they would be very helpful to someone who is considering starting up or purchasing a lavender farm of their own for creative ideas on making this small business opportunity flourish!
There are lavender farm destinations throughout Oregon, but none on the Southern Oregon Coast. This is a unique coastal location for growing lavender and this farm has proven itself since 2005.
Oregon Coast Magazine May/June 2013 has a Featured Article on page 52 about the Lavender Lady and the farm! View Article
