a brief history
Peggy and Thane Bryenton (above) are the proud owners of the Evergreen Valley Lavender Farm in Olympia, WA - a boutique operation specializing in lavender products, including: fresh (seasonal) and dried flowers and buds, essential oils and hydrosols, bath and body products, arts and crafts. The farm (aka EVLF) also doubles as a popular, local getaway to simply read a book or take in the fresh air from one of the many seating areas peppered throughout the lavender fields.
"We started the EVLF after a brief visit to the lavender farms in Sequim, WA in 2008. My wife is the gardener of the family and she will tell you that I am like “Ferdinand the Bull” when it comes to flowers and scents. We enjoy most of them but lavender has become our all-time favorite. We hope to share our passion for this very graceful and generous plant with you!" -- Thane Bryenton, Owner

We love our quiet and beautiful four-acre farm, the picturesque Evergreen Valley and our neighbors. Our property is secluded from traffic noise and congestion and is surrounded by large farms and a quiet creek. As such, we make every attempt to keep our footprint small and to have a positive impact on our local community. This is why we cultivate our farm ecologically and organically.
So, come! Bring the family and share this tiny corner of the earth that we care for with such love and joy. It is truly a relaxing, friendly, and beautiful place that leaves lasting memories.
