You won’t want to miss an east county exclusive event this year. The 5th annual Cowlitz Falls Lavender Company annual celebration is a great family fun day and a perfect way to experience the beauty found in the other side of Lewis County.
Founded in 2014, we dreamed of starting an Agritourism farming experience that others could enjoy with us. Back-breaking labor, determination and the many hurdles of life-changing events have shaped what we have to share so far. We are proud to continuously improve and grow and have such a great time sharing our small achievements and what we do.
This summer, the farm is starting to get back to normal operations, and the festival plan has been forming and building steam as early as January! Since our first harvest, we began to celebrate just prior to cutting it all down and wanted to share the purple field with as many as possible before it’s gone.
With the peak of the harvest in July, the celebration is always held the 2nd weekend of July. This year specifically is marked for Friday, July 9 through Sunday, July 12. While at the farm, you will find our farm stand products, equipment displays, close to 50 handcraft vendors set up in an open-air market, other local farm offerings, special speakers and guests and crafting for the kids.
Our star of the show is definitely the lavender field with over 5000 blooming lavender plants just waiting for our commercial harvest. So, stroll the field, harvest your own U-cut lavender, or just sit in our top field area far away from the festivities for a relaxing experience. In addition, we are pleased to have activities this year such as group meditations, bee-keeping lectures, and oil painting classes.
This year crafting with the kids is back, and to top it off, we have special guests Miss Washington and Miss Colfax, to help the children with their projects. Food, snacks, and beverages will be available at the farm, including cotton candy, espresso, kettle corn, wood-fired pizzas, and more!
The full event schedule can be found at our event calendar and you can follow us on Facebook for the most up-to-date posts. Also, be sure to check out information on any of the special events that require preregistration, but the general event is open to all, and as always, it is free to attend.
