Welcome to Southern Hills Lavender

Thank you and Good Bye

2021: The end of our Era. We started preparing our lavender field in 2014 and planted in May 2015. By the end of that month, we received news that would change the trajectory of our farm and business (external source of disease in the soil, read about that here). We did what we could and changed from an agritourism business model to propagation in 2019. Now it’s time for us to focus outside of lavender. We are closing Southern Hills Lavender and are focusing on growing our family. From the bottom of my heart, Thank You to each one of you that helped make us a success.

As of 2019: As you may have read, due to an external source of plant disease, SHL had to drastically change business direction. Read all about that here. We are no longer open to the public but are focusing on lavender plant propagation. We are no longer holding Upicks, events or classes, allowing photographers or visitors in the field or producing products. We are starting and growing lavender plants for sale. We will periodically have plants sales or plants available. Please watch our website, social media and newsletter for that information.

Some FAQs:

  • If I bought a plant from you, do I have the disease?
    • The plants we sold were grown and tested (by Clemson) as disease-free. The disease in the field affects the roots and we can still use the top part of the plant that is alive.
  • Will you have any dried buds or bundles for sale?
    • We are not doing retail anymore and we will eventually be selling any leftover inventory, but I do not have a date for that. So, if you need buds and bundles for a special event, do not count on us.
  • Can I come just see the lavender?
    • We are not open to the public any longer.
  • Will you be holding any more Feasts in the Field?
    • We are no longer holding events.
  • Will you be having any classes?
    • We are no longer doing any classes.
  • Are you sad or mad or frustrated?…..
    • When we planted in 2015, we had no idea we’d be planting diseased plants (that came from a trusted source) or that the disease would forever change our future. Once we did get the diagnosis, we knew the plants would only thrive or live for so long, but the immense amount of rain from spring 2018 to spring 2019 (the writing of this) has spread the disease quickly and devastated the plants.
