In 2015, in lovely Hamilton Montana, my stepdad had the wild idea to start a lavender farm. He made a few calls, poked and prodded around, and next thing you know, we were in the field planting 2,000 lavender plants. Thus, Lavender With Love was born.
My mother and I worked tirelessly for the next 7 years, and with the help of our most trusted friends (Kitty and Jessica – just to name a few) we tended plants, went to seminars, developed products, went to shows, and immersed ourselves in all things lavender. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve quit, then un-quit, and now, after these 7 beautiful years, my husband Seth and I have taken the reins so Lavender With Love can continue to expand, develop, and prosper.
LAVENDER WITH LOVE
Here's Our Story:
Lavender Essential Oil
Our 100% pure, organic, unadulterated lavender oil is processed right on our farm. Every Batch is distilled with love and care ensuring you the highest quality oil.
Hydrosol is the co-product made when producing lavender oil. With antiseptic and disinfectant qualities, and light fresh scent, this product is wonderful to use in and out of the house.
Our USDA certified organic lavender buds are triple cleaned and hand inspected to ensure the highest quality buds for culinary use and more.
A Lavenedar Farmer
Never in a million years would I have thought when I grew up I’d be a lavender farmer. Is that even a thing? YEP! And to be honest, it’s a DANG cool job. Working outside, being able to be around family, creating a product that not only looks beautiful and smells great, but is also contributing to the health of the world, and the fact that every day is bring your pet to work day! I could not be more grateful.

The Man with a Plan
Founder of Lavender With Love. We wouldn’t be where we are today without him. He works so hard in and around the farm to make sure we have everything we need to grow a great business. Most days you will find him at his desk, driving around on a tractor, or milling about making sure things are going well, all with a peanut butter sandwich in hand! We are truly thankful for him and all he has done and still does to bring the love into Lavender With LOVE!
The Plant Wizard
Our newest member the Lavender With Love family. He fell into our lap just at the right moment. Some call it luck others divine fate! Recently relocated from Brazil with his family, Jesod knows the ins and outs of all things plant life. He shows up to work every day with a smile on his face and is ready and willing to tackle whatever we throw at him. Already family, we are so grateful to have him on our team and in our lives. Plus, now I have someone to share my affinity for hot sauce with!
To say it’s been a journey is an understatement. The knowledge obtained, the personal growth, and friends made along the way are worth more than anything I could have ever imagined. Every day I step onto the farm, my heart is filled with all the love that has been poured into each and every piece of this place to make it what it is today. From every worker that has helped with harvest and planting, to the long nights spent creating product, and every weekend all summer long sharing our hard work with the community, it is a labor of love. It may not always be easy, but the love that comes out at the end is worth every challenging day.
