Lavender Hill Farm of Niles, Michigan (est. 2001), is located in the scenic, rolling hills of Berrien County in southwest Michigan.  Our 1.25 acre lavender field has over 4000 lavender plants, of eight varieties. We specialize in growing and selling lavender flowers and plants, and our farm-made lavender products, featuring our sensational Lavender Honey (just the way the bees make it) and our farm-distilled lavender essential oil and fragrant lavender water. Our farm shop is open June - August, Monday -Saturday 10 am to 4 pm, with limited days and hours in spring and fall, starting in April and continuing till just before Christmas.  Check our event calendar for days and hours: Calendar   

Come visit our farm during lavender season for an amazing sensory experience.  Our various lavender varieties bloom in sequence from late June until  late July so there is always something at its peak.

Lavender is an extraordinary plant with a captivating scent, beautiful demeanor, and a multitude of uses.  Best known for its wonderful, calming and uplifting scent, lavender has been used as an anti-inflammatory, and anti-septic since ancient times. It is also known for its repellency to certain pests, such as mosquitoes, moths, etc. But many people are still unaware that lavender is a wonderful addition to many foods. It is increasingly being used in both sweet and savory dishes as well as alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks!  Come to our shop to find out more about the many ways to use lavender in cooking.

Our farming philosophy is to grow things using the most natural means practicable. Natural means for fertilizing, pest and weed control are being increasingly implemented as our practices improve the soils.   We are also working on ecological restoration projects on our 30 acre farm. A 2.5 acre native wildflower and grass planting and restoration was planted in Fall of 2008 to help create and preserve native pollinator habitat which is so important for our food supply. Each year we see more native wildflowers bloom, which we catalogue in photos on this site. We are continually learning and trying new things to help make the environment better for all.
