White Oak Lavender Farm is owned and operated by the Haushalter family in Harrisonburg, Virginia. This is in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley near Massanutten Resort. We grow over 8,000 lavender plants and about 3,000 grape vines in many interesting varieties. We harvest our lavender plants in the summer to dry the flowers for buds and to extract the essential oil and hydrosol or floral water through steam distillation. We harvest our grapes in the Fall to make 10 delicious wines.
The farm has been open to the public since 2008 and has grown into a popular year-round agritourism venue. We offer a wine tasting experience, tours, lectures, classes, a petting area and a lovely lavender gift shop.
Our winemaker, Randy Phillips is the owner of Cave Ridge Vineyards in Mt. Jackson, VA. Randy has over 25 years of experience in winemaking and is well renowned in the Virginia region. Randy makes our wines from grapes on our estate, his estate or sourced in the Shenandoah Valley. We are continuously developing new combinations of grapes and lavender types for new and exciting flavors! We all enjoy this, as someone has to do all the flavor testing!
