Willakenzie Lavender, LLC is the lavender farm Debbie Gorham and Bob Applegate operate just outside of Yamhill, Oregon - right in the heart of wine country.  Much of the soil type on this 20 acre farm is ‘Willakenzie’ type soil; hence the name.  Beautiful, panoramic views surround the home along with rose and perennial gardens.  Visitors are always encouraged to tour the gardens.  Many varieties of beardless irises, peonies, lilacs, ornamental grasses and roses are featured.


Just beyond the landscape is an extensive lavender display bed.  On both sides of the display bed path are three each of 17 different cultivars.   Re-planted in 2013, this bed is a spectacular showcase of true lavenders for visitors to experience.


In the lavender fields you will find large plantings of the following lavender cultivars:  ‘Royal Velvet’, ‘Maillette’,  & ‘Violet Intrigue’.   ‘Avice Hill’ and ‘Folgate’ blocks were planted in late Spring 2011.


Willakenzie Lavender, LLC specializes in growing Lavandula angustifolia, also known as ‘true lavender’ or English lavender.  It has the softest, sweetest scent of the lavenders.  The essential oil is used in aromatherapy and premium quality personal care products.  Our bath and body care products as well as our culinary lavender products are handcrafted using the lavender we grow and the essential oil we distill. 


“U-Pick Lavender” begins once the lavender flower buds open, usually mid to late June.  Bring cameras, but please leave dogs at home.  Shop online or visit Inner Oasis in McMinnville, Red Ridge Farms in Dayton, and all Made In Oregon stores.


We’re sure you’ll enjoy the dazzling photo above - we think it’s truly spectacular.  This is a photo of a very large, oil pastel painting of our lavender farm by the outstanding Oregon landscape artist Jane Aukshunas.  See more of her work at www.janeaukshunas.com.

We grow the lavender, distill the essential oils, & handcraft the products.
