Lavender Festival Hours: 10 am to 6 pm
Open to the public only on Festival weekend. Plants and products available throughout the year; contact via e-mail.
On the banks of the North Yamhill River, in what remains of the old town of Pike, lies Wild Rain Farm, where we grow 12 varieties of lavender, bordered by several varieties of poppies and 26 acres of tall fescue. There is also a display garden with single specimens of around 50 lavender varieties. The main field of 1500 lavender plants overlooks a small park on the banks of the river, where you can relax in chairs or at picnic tables. Our atmosphere is very low-keyed and pastoral, with minimal commercialization. Bring your own picnic lunch or pick up snack at the lavender festival in Beulah Park in Yamhill and eat while relaxing to “music” from the bees and the streaming river. Lavender lemonade, snickerdoodles, and shortbread will be for sale at the farm during the festival.
Learn to make lavender wands, wreaths, and other crafts. Cut your own bunches of lavender, make your own sachets, or purchase fresh or dried bouquets. Dried loose lavender, wands, sachets, bath and skin products, essential oil, lavender blackberry jam, lavender jelly, lavender infused honey, lavender chocolate, and lavender plants will also be for sale. 100% of the proceeds from the farm sales and the craft lessons will be donated to Homeward Bound, a no-kill animal shelter in McMinnville.
Directions: Drive 4.5 miles west of Yamhill on Pike Rd; turn left on Rockyford Rd; take an immediate right on Old Railroad Grade; first driveway on the right.
