We are Pam and Mark Baker, the proud owners of Little Lavender Farm in Dundee Oregon. We are often asked, how we decided to farm lavender. Well, it all started, as many good things do, by accident. Mark and I had an area in our back yard in Escondido CA where we just couldn't grow anything -- a hot, south-facing slope of about 1/4 acre with terrible, granite soil. But after visiting a local lavender farm with similar conditions, we realized that maybe, just maybe, we could grow lavender on that slope. So we bought 50 lavender plugs that very day and got to work. And they grew. And we were hooked. And we bought more plants. And the more we studied this wonderful plant, the more we wanted to learn and grow and experiment.
Fast forward 2 years, and we got the opportunity of a lifetime to move up to Oregon. We were able to start up a slightly bigger version of our little lavender farm again, learning from the mistakes we made on our first farm and making completely new ones at our second farm. But we have loved every minute of it. We continue to learn and experiment and love this lavender dream. And we're excited to share a little of that dream with you
