April 1st (April Fool's Day) 2004, sounded like a good day to plant!  We planted 1200 lavender plants of 3 varieties: Grosso, Grappenhall, and the culinary Hidcote. The plants bloom once a year, June-August, and it's simply magical!

During our harvest season we open our lavender fields to folks who want to come and cut their own lavender or learn how we cut, bundle and dry our lavender at Los Gatos Farms.

Our "U-cut" lavender is open during harvest season, July-early August. Email me,, and I'll be sure to notify you when it happens.  We hope to see you there!

$10 for a fat bunch. It's a fun easy process! Bring your own scissors/cutters and a basket/tray/bag. Wear closed toe shoes.

Kids are welcome! Visit our horses, goats, chickens, pig, and mini donkeys! Hiking trails and limited picnic space available, also.

Bring your own blanket and take out any trash. Thanks :)

U Cut 2022 has ended for this summer
