 VISITING THE FARM

Welcome to Sunset Ridge Lavender Farm!  First and foremost, Sunset Ridge is our home.

We have been blessed to have so many wonderful visitors at our farm! Our goal is to provide a relaxing and enjoyable experience, whether it is rocking on our porch, sitting in the shade, sipping a lavender lemonade, or picking a beautiful bundle of lavender and enjoying the serenity of our property. When visiting during our open hours we ask that you respect our property and rules, and show kindness and consideration towards others.

RULES

  • Entering our farm outside of business hours is trespassing, which is unlawful and not permitted.  We ask that you respect our privacy even if the gate is open.

  • Our driveway is one way. Please do not exit through the entrance.  Follow the driveway to exit onto Jackson Road.

  • Park only in designated areas.  The main parking lot is flagged off.  Additional parking is beyond the main lot off the driveway out to Jackson Road.

  • We have moved the gift shop entrance to the south side of the barn, located near the handicap parking spaces.  Please use that entrance.  The shop exit will take you into the main barn.  The handicap ramp is on the north side of the barn, so those needing the ramp can enter and exit through the shop exit door. Our gift shop is small so we ask that you leave strollers and pets outside.

  • For U-Picks, go directly through the porch main entrance to the barn to pay, get scissors and instructions.  While we prefer cash payments, we are now accepting cash and credit in the barn.  U-Pick payments will no longer be accepted in the gift shop.

  • The only field we allow people to walk in is our U-Pick field.  Please stay off the plastic in the other fields around the barn.  No access is permitted in the flagged off areas in the fields.

  • No access is permitted to the area and field around our private residence.  We have plenty of space around our purple barn for you to enjoy!

  • Children must be supervised at all times and not allowed to wander for their safety.

  • Please do not move lawn furniture.

  • Please do not walk in the landscaped areas.  Do not pick up or move the rocks or decorative accents in landscaping.

  • We are a pet-friendly location but require all animals to be on a leash at all times and you are responsible to clean up after them.  No pets are allowed in the U-Pick field without prior authorization from management. 

  • Do not litter.

  • No smoking or vaping allowed.

 

                                                         PHOTOGRAPHY POLICY

We welcome visitors to take photos on their cell phones during business hours for personal use.  We are pleased that so many people love taking photographs of our farm when it’s part of their total farm experience, and we appreciate when you tag us on social media.

We recommend if you are wanting to take posed or professional photos that you avoid the weekends as they are particularly busy with our U-pick guests.   Posed photography includes family, senior photos, prom, pregnancy and the like.  The photographer does not need to be receiving payment for the shoot or be considered a “professional” for our fees to apply.  Professional Photography includes anyone who could make money or is considered a professional photographer, and fees will apply.  If you are taking posed or professional photography, please go directly upon arrival to the U-pick tables in the barn to sign in and make payment. The charge is $40 per hour. No mini sessions. No tripods or props allowed. NO DRONES.

This year we will provide a limited number of evening photo sessions.  We DO NOT provide the photographer. Each session will have an alternate date in the same time slot for weather related issues only. These sessions will be $75 per hour. We do not issue refunds. You must book and prepay for your session on our website before you arrive. Paying any fee does not give you exclusive rights or access.  On the date of your scheduled session, please arrive at your scheduled time.  If you arrive early, please wait in your car until your time slot, and instruct your clients to do the same.  You and your clients must sign in at the barn, as well as sign out before you leave.  No group larger than six is allowed per shoot.  If you have a larger group, please contact us by email for possible arrangements.

You can book through our website on the "Activities" page.  Sessions will be 6:30 to 7:30, and 7:30 to 8:30.  Dates for evening sessions will be as follows:

Sunday, June 16, 2024 - Alternate date is Sunday, June 23, 2024

Monday, June 17, 2024 - Alternate date is Monday, June 24, 2024
