Who We Are
How our Adventure Began
Doreen and her daughter Amanda embarked on this adventure by pursuing their passions. In 2016, Doreen and Amanda (together with their husbands) bought an 1840's farm that had been vacant for many years. They saw potential in this former dairy farm and began restoring the home and clearing the long overgrown fields.
With a lot of TLC, the lavender fields flourished. Doreen began with only two rows of six young lavender plants and after careful cultivation, now cares for over 130 plants. Come in for a visit today!

Co-Owner, Tractor Procurer
Without Manny, Lavender Sky Farm would never have gotten off the ground. He was the driving force behind looking for a property, making an offer, and seeing its potential. If you can dream it, he will make it happen - he is always on the lookout for new tools, equipment and additions to the farm and its future. Most weekends find Manny on the tractor or hard at work on any number of projects at the farm.
Co-Owner and Supporter
After asking Manny for permission to marry Amanda on the unplowed fields of Lavender Sky Farm, Joe knew he was in for an adventure. Joe appreciated the histoy of the property and set out to make something of the abandoned and overgrown fields. While not the biggest fan of chickens or lavender, Joe has taken charge of clearing and plowing the fields, exploring the wooded acres with his dog, and tackling any project thrown at him.
