Lavender Wind Farm, with a view of the Olympic Mountains and the Strait of Juan De Fuca, is on the wild west side of beautiful Whidbey Island in Washington state. The farm is within the <a href="http://www.nps.gov/ebla/home.htm" target="_blank">Ebey's Landing National Historical Reserve</a>, and maintains the farming culture of this special area. We have perfect growing conditions for lavender, only about 18 inches of rain a year due to the Olympic Rain Shadow, lots of wind, and plenty of sun. Come visit us during our summer blooming season.
The land it sits on has been farmed for over 100 years. Sarah Richards, the current owner, bought the original 5 acres from the Darst family who had raised potatoes on the land for years. The soil is a rich sandy loam. Later she bought an additional 3.75 acres and has been planting more lavender.
In 2012 Lavender Wind has expanded into Historic Coupeville at 15 Coveland Street, in a cute bungalow house that has been converted into a manufacturing facility and gift shop.
We are part of the greater central and north part of Whidbey Island.
