Warwickshire Lavender Farm started out in 2016, as a dream hobby for retirement, to provide a beautiful environment and to give Ian’s 3 bee hive residents some lovely foraging and to produce the much sought-after lavender honey. Pippa, being a psychotherapist, also understands how important fresh air, beautiful surroundings and essential oils for relaxation are for good mental wellbeing.
However, since the first strip was cut in what was an old pig pen during a cold snowy April, things have certainly grown to what we have today! A beautiful new site, a peaceful south facing field with a natural pond and old stone stable, nestled in the Warwickshire countryside is the perfect home for the Warwickshire Lavender Farm, of which 8 acres are planted up with at least 12000 lavender plants, 3 different varieties of lavender and some 1000 rosemary plants, as well as mint.
None of this would have been possible without some incredible friends, Martin, Stuart and John (affectionately known as the Lav Boys!) who have helped through sun and rain to plant the fields by hand and keep weeds at bay, together with further help from local village friends and neighbours and knowledgeable farmers, we have been extremely fortunate. It really has been a team effort! And way more work than was initially envisaged!!
Every plant has been lovingly planted and tended, and our dream of having an organically grown lavender farm, with essential oils distilled on site is well on the way now.
We hope you enjoy visiting on line or in person our beautiful little farm and cafe, that is on an ever improving journey.
We look forward to welcoming you

The 3 varieties of lavender we grow have been chosen for their hardiness and high quality oils.
