NileGuide Expert tip:
They have a cute gift shop.
- Lavender Ridge Gift and Garden Shop is Nevada's only commercial Lavender farm located just West of downtown in the small community of Verdi. There is a large field of lavender, plus a large array of hand-crafted lavender products including body and bath items, candles, lavender plants, soaps, culinary seasonings, herbal teas & much more. The products are formulated, bottled and packaged on site.
Lavender Ridge was established on the remnants of an old farmstead dating back to the 1920's. Owners Mike and Kristen Harris traveled extensively visiting other lavender farms, some as far away as New Zealand to learn the art of cultivation, distillation and the many uses for the varied types of lavender and flowers.
Tours of the farm are available as well as special events and rental facilties.
Lavender Ridge grows many varieties of Lavender including "Royal Velvet", "Hicote", "Provence", "Violet Intrigue", "Gene Davis", "Munstead", and more. The 3,000 plus Lavender plants in out fields are free from pesticides and irrigated with the natural, crisp, clear waters of the Truckee River with its source; Lake Tahoe and High Sierra snow pack.
