Lavender flowers are known for its beauty, charm, grace, resilience, calmness and elegance. It is a spiritual connection and appreciation of nature’s magnificence. Inspired by the memories of my mother and her love, I have created “Lavender Ally Farm” in Rogue River, OR. This is a peaceful place to start a masterpiece for all to enjoy. The “U pick” field, which has 13 different varieties of lavender with all unique fragrances, will emotionally resonate with each one of us. The different shades of lavender will be nothing but a picture perfect portrait from all angles. If you have ever looked out over a lavender field, you will enjoy the hypnotizing elegance of the different types of lavender. Our circular field is created with the “tree of life” concept. It symbolizes togetherness and serves as a reminder that you are never alone or isolated, but rather that you are connected to the world. Standing in the center of the gazebo will just allow you to absorb the unique foliage of the lavender blossoms. Our varieties of lavenders include: Grosso, Melissa, Dwarf White, White Spike, Seal, Provence, Betty’s Blue, Folgate, Royal Velvet, Silver Frost, Phenomenal, Hidcote Giant, and Munstead. We hope to see you during events and enjoy the fruit of our labor.

The ancient Greeks called Lavender nardus, after the Syrian city of Naarda and was commonly called Nard. Lavender was one of the holy herbs used to prepare the Holy Essence and Nard, or ‘spikenard’ is mentioned in the bible in the ‘Song of Solomon’ among other places.
