At Bluebird Hill  lLvender farm , they grow lavender using organic practices to develop unique, farm fresh lavender products for body, gifts and weddings. Creating memorable experiences to enhance your life and the lives of those you love is a priority. The farm pledges to employ sustainable agriculture methods, enhance community spirit and help preserve the North Carolina rural landscape as we grow this lovely, soothing and fragrant herb.

“Pairidaeza”, the Persian name for an enclosed scented garden is the root word from which our Paradise is derived. It is quite likely that lavender had an important role in scenting and coloring these ancient gardens, as some of lavender’s varieties are native to Persia.
Glorious gardens stimulate sight, color and scent. Lavender takes a prominent spot in pleasing all of our senses with its sun-kissed and wind-billowed purple spikes covering fields like a chiffon coverlet.

Lavender is a most richly fragrant shrub and its swathes of color release a heady perfume in the mid-Summer breeze.
The Lavender Garden is a field of lavender in Rowan County, in central North Carolina, which includes Grappenhall Lavender known for its long stems in early summer.
Grosso Lavender, especially bred for its high oil content and rich scent is also grown, along with Hidcote Giant, another of The Lavender Garden’s plants, which is a stately lavender with tall spikes. Provence Lavender, also grown at The Lavender Garden, is filled with the romance of Southern France along with Abrialii, a darling lavender of dark purple flowers. When in bloom usually in mid-June, the field is awash with purple color, sweet scent, the humming of bees, and the flutter of butterflies.

    My granddaughter, daughter-in-law and I enjoyed a sunny day at the lavender harvest. We gathered, bundled and enjoyed the lovely aroma of the lavender. It is a lovely setting in the country, the live band was great and the lunch delicious!

    Sue and I enjoyed the day--meeting folks from other parts of the state, smelling the lavender, eating lunch in the field, and seeing that there's a lot of work in harvesting lavender. Thanks for organizing this, Sharon.

    The Lavender Harvest was a great day. We learned how they made oil from the lavender. We were actually taking part in the harvesting. The gardens, people, lunch, smell of the lavender and entire event made it a fantastic way to spend a sunday. Thanks again Sharon for organizing it all.

    It was fun! The lavender smelled wonderful. I guess I didn't think about it was actually going to be work, though. Thank you, Sharon, for organizing this and tolerating me on the ride.
