Wilton Family Lavender Farm, owned and operated by John and Sharon, welcomes you to visit their fields of lavender. Wander through the vibrant purples, white, and pink flowering plants surrounded by oak trees while taking in the strong, sweet fragrances of lavender. The working farm is situated on a rolling 5 acre property with a year round creek. Come pick your own flower bundles, or just relax and enjoy the beautiful sights and sounds. The pleasant scent will put you in a peaceful state of mind. Lavender is not only beautiful and sensory, it is a practical choice for your garden. Lavender is non-palatable to deer and pests, drought tolerant, and can be easy to manage.
We spent extensive time researching and investigating lavender then decided to become farmers. In June 2018, Wilton Family Lavender Farm had its first test plants prepared and planted. We are currently showcasing 14 varieties of Lavender and over 1,000 plants. All our varieties were chosen for their beauty, oil, scent and color.
A well loved mediterranean herb, lavender has been associated with cleanliness since Romans first added it to their bathwater. The name comes from the Latin word “Lavanders”, meaning to wash or cleanse. Essential oil of lavender has many applications in aromatherapy.
Lavender remains a favorite for scenting clothing, closets, soaps and even furniture polish. Lavender is inhaled to ease anxiety, exhaustion, insomnia, irritability and depression. In the Victorian era, women revived themselves with lavender filled swooning pillows.
The calming, fresh, unique lavender fragrance is available in potpourris, wands, buds, oils, handmade soap, lotions, lip balm, hydro-mists (hydrosol disinfectants), wreaths, candles and much more.
