About This Location

Nestled amidst the picturesque hills of Vermont's Northeast Kingdom, Lavender Essentials of Vermont provides a serene escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Their custom line of aromatherapy products brings a touch of tranquility to any corner of the world, while a visit to their farm offers a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of Vermont's countryside.

Summer is the season of lavender, and if you're seeking the ultimate lavender experience in the Green Mountain State, Lavender Essentials of Vermont is the place to be. Tucked away on a breathtaking hilltop in Derby, this farm is a true labor of love, spanning 30 acres of farmland with two lush acres dedicated to cultivating lavender.

The moment you arrive, you're greeted by the enchanting scent of lavender that fills the air. While you can catch a whiff of its delightful aroma from the car, the real magic happens when you wander through the lavender fields. Lavender Essentials of Vermont cultivates three species of lavender – Munstead, Hidcote, and Phenomenal, catering to enthusiasts who appreciate the nuances of these aromatic plants.

What's even more remarkable is the farm's commitment to sustainability. A 140-foot Bergy wind turbine partly powers the operation, showcasing their dedication to green energy. Additionally, a natural spring-fed pond plays a vital role in irrigating the lavender crops, highlighting their eco-conscious approach.

The lavender fields burst into a vibrant tapestry of colors and scents, reaching their peak bloom around late July. However, you can revel in their beauty and fragrance throughout July, August, and September. Take a leisurely stroll through the fields to fully immerse yourself in the heavenly scent of lavender, and don't forget to take a piece of this natural beauty home with you.

But Lavender Essentials of Vermont offers more than just a sensory delight. They've also partnered with Harvest Host, Tentrr, and HipCamp to provide a selection of campsites for both tent and RV camping right on the farm. These spacious sites offer an exclusive experience, as they limit the number of guests, ensuring a peaceful and private getaway. For those who are willing to lend a helping hand on the farm, they even offer complimentary camping as a token of gratitude.

The farm's hilltop location provides breathtaking panoramic views, allowing you to gaze across the Vermont landscape for miles. Whether you're looking to replenish your aromatherapy supplies, explore the enchanting lavender fields, or embark on a camping adventure amidst nature's beauty, Lavender Essentials of Vermont promises an unforgettable escape into tranquility.
