A Photo Essay: Mt. Shasta Lavender Farms

We didn’t have an opportunity to visit Mt. Shasta Lavender Farms last year, so I was incredibly excited to see the farm on Saturday. Logan and I walked around for hours taking photos and staring at the beautiful scenery around us.

On our way home, Logan said I was “being funny” at the farm and I asked him what he meant by the remark. Apparently, I was walking around with my mouth agape all morning. I was very enamored with the landscape and the lavender! Also, the farm was peaceful and magical. I’m looking forward to visiting again and taking more photos.

If you live in Northern California, visit Mt. Shasta Lavender Farms this summer. They are open everyday until August 3rd and there is no entrance fee. Also, the farm will be closed during 2015 and it will reopen in 2016; all the more reason to visit this summer.

Enjoy the photos!

    Enchanting! I’m pretty sure I’ve dreamed of this place. Thank you for the gorgeous images Tammy!

    Amazing! What a gorgeous place. Maybe the aroma of the lavender was going to your head. 🙂

    Just beautiful images of the Mt Shasta Lavender Farms. I love the close up of the stonework of the building with that cart and its gorgeous red wheel. What a stunning area with the snow-capped mountain in the distance.

    Isn’t this a wonderful place!
    I was there a couple of years ago and probably did what you did – walked around in awe. 🙂
    It is such a great setting with the mountain in the background and all the wonderful purple lavender flowers.
    Your pictures brought back some nice memories.

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if everybody else encountering issues with your website.

      Things look okay on my end. I’d suggest rebooting your computer. When I run into tech troubles that usually helps. Thanks for reading!

    Just beautiful! Lavender is my absolute favourite herb.

  • Lynda June 17, 2014, 5:23 am

    This is just perfect – had to see the images at larger scale after admiration on Instagram.
    My love of lavender has just been indulged – thank you so much. I can almost smell the scent in warm sunshine, and hear the buzzing of contented bees.

    Positively blissful….

    Hi Tammy, I love the images with the water fountain included, and that you caught the water droplets! Wonderful! I enjoy viewing all of your photos, especially the ones including your cats! 🙂 I bought your book too, so I can escape to your “morning view” anytime!

    • Tammy Strobel June 17, 2014, 12:44 pm

      Thank you, Carla! I appreciate your kind words & support.

  • Diana June 17, 2014, 12:17 pm

    Adding this to my bucket list.

  • Jo Anne Richardson June 17, 2014, 3:02 pm

    These photos are lovely, as always. Honestly, following your work makes me want to move to California! Also, thanks for adding in the camera you used. The Nikon shots are great, but I’m constantly amazed at what the IPhone can produce. Best wishes.

    This place looks so magical and I love your shots with the mountains in the background. Love that you managed to sneak a coffee cup in too!
    p.s.s.s.t.t.t… these shots would look great as postcards… 🙂

    Beautiful views. Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you so much for sharing these beautiful pictures. I admire your talent.

  • Martina June 17, 2014, 11:06 pm

    You live in a gorgeous spot of our planet – Mount Shasta is amazing for me every time I see it on your photos, and now even with lavender beds in front!
    Did you get some lavender for your porch/ garden? Even if you should not be able to get it over the winter, a little pot could bring you lots of happiness now.

    Breathtakingly Beautiful.

    That lavender farm looks like a wonderful place to spend an afternoon. The blooming flowers are really pretty and I like the contrast between the brown earth and the green and purples of the lavender plants.

    • Tammy Strobel June 18, 2014, 10:02 am

      It’s a magical spot, Eric. I purchased gifts for friends and family last weekend. I’m going back soon and will get some lavender goodies for myself. About a month ago, I started a lavender plant from seed and I’m hoping it will keep growing. 🙂

  • Ky June 18, 2014, 8:00 pm

    These pictures are lovely. I feel so calm looking at that landscape. Thanks for sharing.

  • Hannah Corson June 19, 2014, 9:00 am

    These pics are astounding. I must go here! My friend showed me some pics of a lavender farm she went to in New Zealand, but honestly, these pics make Mt. Shasta Lavender Farm seem much more beautiful! Not to mention closer to visit 😉 Thanks for sharing!!
