Welcome to Big sky Country!

I was not born of a farming life, rather, at age 36 I was struck by a lavender lightning bolt of inspiration while visiting a lavender festival in the year 2000. I came away from that experience knowing in my marrow that I had to farm lavender even though I lived in Montana, had no land or any money. Timing is everything; fortune favours the prepared mind. Everything unfolded exactly as it should. I want everyone to feel, in all six senses what I felt while in the presence of this lovely plant that day at the festival.

by Lavender Lori Parr - on Thursday, December 07, 2017

This book began as a 'poor me' tale about having lost 90% of my 1100 plant crop to one freak storm after a 9 year success streak. In the four years it has taken to complete I have created, relocated, and reinvented the farm as well as the concept of farming this plant in a difficult climate like western Montana and in this global warming situation we find ourselves in.
