VARIETIES
The Munstead and Hidcote come in first.
These two are shorter stemmed, a tight bloom with a sharp fragrance.
By early July, the Provence and Grosso are ready.
These two are very tall stemmed, a sweet bloom, and quite showy.
All or our varieties are grown in native soil with no amendments or sprays.
Our lavender is organic and cooking grade.

PROCESS
At DeLaCour Ranch, we cut then dry our lavender on the stem.
We bundle the lavender and hang in a darkened barn stall for storage.
We sell the lavender as decorative bundles to specialty stores throughout the year.

DELIGHT
To sit and cut lavender in any of our patches is to simply float amongst the drunken buzzing bees in a soft purple sea. There are no hurries. Now and then you will glance out, in any direction, at the handsome shoulders of the canyon walls, at the rising granite of the Sierra crest, and across the vast valley below with the Inyo range beyond. The play of light and distance will tease the senses. The lavender will both excite and calm you, and make everything good.

Lodging is limited, so please, make your harvest plans early and reserve a spot!!
