Our Story

Who We Are

Sherwood Lavender Farm is an agri-tourism destination in Sherwood, Oregon. We are a small, family-run sustainable lavender farm featuring over 1000 lavender plants grown using organic principles. We use chickens for pest control, a rescue horse and a flock of endangered shetland sheep for mowing and fertilizer and bees for pollination. In past years, we've produced lavender honey from our own hives and distilled our lavender and lavandin for essential oil using a copper still.

In 2018, we added our herd of Shetland Sheep and it turned out they have a taste for lavender, which has been a challenge in 2018 and 2019. The sheep love their farm and are a delight to work with. In good news, we will be selling our pure Shetland wool at our website shortly. We will also have several sheep for sale this year. 


In typical years, we are open during select days for u-pick.  We have honey and essential oil available for purchase at the farm from time to time and will put it here online until sold out!



Why Lavender? 

Erika got addicted to lavender in the fields of Provence while leading College tours studying essential oils and aromatherapy. We love all things lavender and our mission is to bring a touch of lavender-filled relaxation to Sherwood, Oregon. Once you have strolled through fields of lavender in bloom, you understand why it has been grown and used for centuries for cosmetic, household, and medicinal uses. Lavender is an ideal choice for small agriculture - it requires little water once established, is not susceptible to many diseases or pests, looks and smells beautiful while growing, and has a wide range of uses once harvested. Plus, gophers and moles don't like it and kids and bees love it! We love the idea of enhancing the agricultural landscape with our lavender fields. Surrounded by vineyards, our farm has sunshine and a gentle slope to ensure good drainage; we are lucky to have a perfect lavender location.


Other Farms we Recommend: 

We love all the lavender farms from our fellow farmers of the Oregon Lavender Association and they are a great place to start. In particular, we recommend our neighbors at Mountainside Lavender , on Highway 219 in Newberg and the new lavender field at Red Berry Barn at the corner of Chapman Road and Highway 99W.
