The Loess Hills Lavender Farm is owned by Mary and Tim Hamer. They are passionate about lavender and continue to make investments in the farm that help their lavender plants flourish. If you can’t make the festival, the farm offers tours and its gift shop is open to visitors seasonally. The shop showcases the work of dozens of local artisans and has plenty of wonderful lavender products for sale.
