(Day visit tickets exclude Festival Dates of June 29 & 30th).
Come to your senses at our lavender farm. See the purple blooms, smell the perfumed flowers, feel the breeze on the hillside field, hear the country quiet and taste the lavender lemonade. We have something wonderful for all your senses! Pick your own lavender flowers, a variety of other perennial flowers to add to your bouquet and find a large variety of culinary herbs in our expansive herb beds. Take the perfect photo in the white gazebo in the heart of the field. Make sweet memories at Seven Oaks Lavender Farm, located less than an hour west from Washington, D.C.
Open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays during the season. We will also be open Tuesdays until 8 p.m. See below for details. You don’t need to make reservations, just come whenever you like. Mornings and weekdays you’ll have the farm more to yourself, especially early in the week. We will not be open until May 31st. (If you are having a lavender product crisis out of season, check out Messick’s Farm Market. They carry a lot of our lavender products.)

Till Twilight Tuesdays! For many years customers have asked for evening hours. We experimented with it is last year and it went well so we decided to firm up the idea this year with our Tuesday hours stretching all day from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. You can use any of your pre-purchased entrance tickets for evening hours or purchase entrance when you come to the farm. Dates for Till Twilight Tuesdays will be June 4th, June 11th, June 18th, June 25th and July 2nd. You can expect to find some special events going on these evenings. One event is already in place and that is Creative Crafts with Amy (painting class) on June 11th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. If you are having a photography session on Tuesday evening, you must still book the date and pay the sitting fee ahead of time.
Do we take credit cards?: Yes. All kinds.
Are we pet friendly?: Yes…one Monday mornings from 9 a.m. to noon you can bring your leashed pets up to the field. Outside day and time there are shady spots below the field you can tie you pet up while you go up to the field.
Farm Use: While we don’t host weddings at the farm, we do book small, special events in the evenings during the season. Pricing is based on attendance and length of time. (It’s affordable) Contact: email@example.com
When is the best time come? It’s personal. Most people don’t roll out until around 11 a.m. so anytime you come earlier in the day you will have the farm more to yourself. Earlier in the week is a more laid back time as well. Early in the season the English bloomers like Hidcote and Croxton’s Wild are going. The weather is cooler. Buy mid to late June, more lavender such as Phenomenal and others are blooming as well. Temps somewhat higher then, so bring your hats and sunscreen.
Can I bring a picnic?: Yes, you may. We have a variety of picnic tables, a shady porch and a big shady tree where you can put down a picnic blankets. We just ask you kindly to bag up all your picnic debris and take it home with you.
Do you have lavender snacks?: But of course! We serve lavender lemonade, lavender-mint iced tea. Lavender-lemon cupcakes and lavender cookies. We always have a cooler of ice water available for thirsty patrons at no cost.
Like us on facebook to get the lavender lowdown! Facebook is updated almost daily during the season. So like us to get the latest.
Do we sell plants?: Yes we will be selling Hidcote Blue and Pheonmenal lavender plants during the season. $10 each. See Cutting Lavender and Plant Care tab for more details.
Do you have bathroom facilities?: We have port-o-potties available during the season. We are very watchful to keep them clean and prepared.
How do you help folks with mobility issues?: There is a short walk from the parking fields up a hill to the field. About 500 yards. If you or a member of your party would struggle with that, you may stop in the farm shop and get permission to drive up to the top of the field.
How do I get there?: Whenever you do visit, please take a careful look at the typed out directions below....often the direction apps take you somewhere crazy or the long way.
Comments from Lavender Season 2018: Thank you so much for making our day so magical!! We had a blast chasing butterflies, feeding bunnies & picking lavenders. Everyone was so kind & informative. Loved the lemonade, tea, cookies and marshmallows. Can not wait to visit again!!
Comments from Lavender Season 2017: Such a therapeutic time at this place. There's a small gift shop filled with lavender lotion, perfume, room spray, tea, soaps and cute items. I appreciate how everything was organized and staffed. The staff were super nice and helpful. There's clean port-a-potties and a cute play area for kids. There's also lawn chairs to relax and picnic tables. I got to pick my own fresh lavender and herbs for a small, small price, too good to be true. I highly recommend this place if you are into nature, likes herbs and just want to get some new scenery from the busy DC routine. I shall return soon.
Comments from 2017-2018 Tea Party & Wreath-Making Event: We did the tea & wreath-making on Saturday. Loved it! Such genuinely friendly people run the farm. It's obvious they love their lavender. The tea was delicious and all the snacks very tasty. We made the wreath using greenery from the farm they had pecked. It was absolutely beautiful.

Directions: Double check your automated route on a map...sometimes folks are sent into a cul de sac in Gainesville by the dratted directions apps.
We're really an easy drive from the greater DC metro, Fredericksburg, or from Central VA. If you are coming out via Rt. 29 South...stay on it until you take a left on Rt. 605 "Dumfries Road". Then take a right on Rt. 603/Greenwich Road and go almost two miles at which point it will turn into Old Dumfries Road as you bear left on a curve and driveway will be 100 yards beyond on left. If you are coming via Rt. 28 South then turn right at the light at Catlett onto our road and proceed two miles and driveway will be on the right. (Address: 8769 Old Dumfries Road, Catlett, VA20119)
