We are temporarily "on pause" for further 2019 bookings for the types of activities listed below. We are committed to serving our customers to fully enjoy our farm. However, this year, our owner and CEO, has had a health issue and we are needing to set boundaries for what we are able to do so that she can get the proper time to receive the care that she needs in order to lead the farm in the next decade! She was diagnosed with acute leukemia and is receiving chemo and a posssible bone marrow transplant. We ask for your patience with us, prayers for our farm team and an understnding that we just need this season to be less stressful so that we can do our core activities well and to the excellent standards that define White Oak Lavender Farm.
