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.

BLOOM SEASON NOTICE: Bud break for the earliest English type lavender occurred on June 3rd, opening the 2018 lavender season. As of the last week in June, the English lavenders were being harvested, and the French hybrids had begun their bloom cycle. We recommend that you plan your visit before the July 4th holiday, as harvest of the French hybrids is expected to be well underway by the time the OLA Farm Tour rolls around (July 14-15).
