RavenCroft Products in 2021: Given the slow roll-out of mass vaccinations, we do not anticipate opening the Raven’s Nest Shop out of an abundance of precaution with regard to Covid-19 transmission by human touching and sniffing of products. During a visit to the farm, you may request fresh-cut bundles, or ask to sample our lavender essential oils and blends. Outside of a personal visit, please contact us by email and we can communicate about your wishes and arrange for purchase and pick-up: email@example.com
RavenCroft can be open to guests by appointment; see phone and email contact information below. There are no admission or parking fees.
Nestled among the gentle hills south of Oregon City, RavenCroft cultivates lavender with an elegant, European sensibility. A multitude of varieties provides us with an unusually long bloom season, often starting in May. On-site distillation yields the varietal essential oils that are the core for our lavender fragrance offerings. Beautiful meeting facilites allow us to host special events pertaining to herb and lavender culture and uses, including culinary applications. You will enjoy strolling through the blooming lavender, learning tips for growing these plants and other herbs, and picnicking with a fantastic view of the Willamette Valley. Browse through the Raven’s Nest shop where you may sample our unique fragrance products, and shop for other lavender-themed items (subject to Covid-a9 restrictions).
SPECIAL CLASSES: Private group sessions are suspended for 2021 due to continuing Covid-19 restrictions.
BLOOM SEASON NOTICE
Here’s what happened in 2019 and 2020: bud-break for the earliest English-type lavender occurred early in June, opening the lavender season. Unfortunately, Mother Nature is a bit fickle, and we must wait to see what she dishes out for spring-time weather before guessing when the 2020 season will launch. We generally expect to be harvesting English-type lavenders in the latter half of June, followed by the French hybrids in early July. To best appreciate our wide assortment of lavender and lavandin varieties, plan a June visit, before too many of the flowers have found their way into the still.
