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.

Blue Bird Hill Lavender Farm offers Lavender Wands & Fresh Lavender Bouquets.
You are invited to our Lavender Harvest event Sunday, June 2 ,2013, 9am to 3pm.
lunch with event $15.00!


Bring your garden clippers--- they are your ticket to this event! Harvesters will receive a wrist band to indicate they will have a free lunch and a fresh bouquet of lavender. The free lunch for harvesters will be available at 1:45 pm. This is a working event to help bring in the harvest. There will be no food sales on site--- only the harvesters' free lunch.

You are invited to linger and enjoy the farm and music afterward if you wish. Feel free to fish for Bass, Catfish, and Blue Gill in our pond during the event. The harvest and lunch is free for harvesters, CSA Members, immediate neighbors, and helpers from previous years.
