The Growing Challenge
Growing lavender and cut flowers in the heart of the Central Oregon lavender belt is fun, but it's not easy. The biggest challenge is the weather and the short growing season. In an area with only a few weeks of guaranteed frost free time, growing lavender is a caretaker's task. Founding farmer, Amy Ochander, cares for each flower as one of her own on the way to a harvest. Sharing the knowledge, the successes, and the failures is just part of the journey. Check out some of the images from the 2023 season below.
