Originally a strawberry & melon farm in the 1920’s & 1930’s, Lavender Ridge Farms opened in 2006 as a lavender, cut-flower, and herb farm. The land here has been in our family for over 150 years and will be home sweet home for many years to come. We are located just 8 miles east of Gainesville, Texas and just one hour from the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex.
The farm currently has 2 acres of lavender planted and over a thousand historic and modern bearded iris. A variety of herbs, perennials, annuals, and natives plants, handmade soaps, culinary, bath & body products are available in and around the gift shop.
Make plans to join us in our Café for a delightful lavender lunch. A screened in patio nestled among the tall shady oaks and overlooking the lavender field makes a perfect setting to enjoy our tasty lavender treats. After lunch, take a stroll through our acres of gardens designed to sustain the harsh Texas climate and provide food for butterflies, birds and bees.
