We did a wine tasting in their small but charming wine tasting room. The full tasting was comprised of nine wines, which included several that were infused with lavender. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable, and the wines were overall quite pleasant. After having a glass by the lavender field, we visited the lavender shop. They offered a wide array... More

I have frequented White Oak Lavender Farm almost every time I am in the Harrisonburg area. I highly recommend it. The shop is wonderful and the aroma when you walk in is all encompassing and so relaxing. Truly lovely people work there and are very helpful. I actually bought some of the lavender plants that they sell. I had questions... More

Lavender fields greet you as you drive into the farm. Plantings around the gift shop are beautiful in the spring, summer and fall. The homemade lavender ice cream is well worth the cost. A variety of lavender items are available.

I really was not impressed? It was nice, but I'm not sure what the "attraction" to this is? They do have various types of lavender for sale, and to roam through the farm, there in an additional fee. Unless someone can give me reason, I doubt I will go there again. Sorry. Just was not impressed.

Thank you for giving a farm visit a try! As a family farm, we do work hard to create lovely gardens with hammock chairs, stained glass areas for soaking in the beautiful valley views and encouraging relaxation. Our animals are loved by many who know their names and interact with them on a regular basis. The very reasonable $3 day... More

Took my teen granddaughters here to harvest their own lavender stems to bring home and weave our own lavender wands. They loved it and they loved the gift shop and the little farmyard animals. Beautiful views of the mountains, too.

I am so glad that your girls found delight in their visit. Lavender is the type of plant that will leave a lifetime impression and has so many health benefits. They will remember being able to harvest and then create their own craft that will last for years! Thank you so much for the review! More

We visited in Winter which looks like a quiet time for the farm. There are animals and gardens that would be fun in warm weather. We were limited to the gift shop and wine room. The gift shop offers a dizzying array of lavender stuff with free tastings. The various teas and jams were predictably tasty. The basalmic vinegars were... More

It looks like a family owned lavender farm. They have not only lavenders but also many types of animal such as pigs, rabbits, turkeys, sheep and goat, pony and horse. the admission was $3 per person, which is a reasonable price for people to relax in a private garden. Not much lavender...

Thank you for visiting our farm this fall. I am so glad that you enjoyed are fun animals and our back gardens. I hope you played on the life size checker board and sat in our hammock chairs or our stained glass peace garden! It is true that in the fall the lavender is all pruned back and going dormant...

We visited in December so there wasn't anything in bloom but the farm is still fun and the shop smells amazing. They have lavender everything: tea, ice cream, jelly and jam, body products, everything. If you come in summer you can pick your own lavender. There is an attached winery that were able to see because it didn't open till... More
