The NEW Eat and Explore Washington Cookbook has just been released and it is awesome!
Not only is it filled with wonderful and tempting recipes from all over the state (home to the World Champion Seahawks-yes the 12th man is very proud and loud at Purple Haze! Go Hawks!!) but it also has information about each of the places the featured recipes are from.
Makes a great gift for any cookbook collector and would actually be a fun way to help plan your summer vacation here in Washington State!

We have received a lot of questions about buses this year to tour the farms and the answer is: that due to rising costs Purple Haze WILL be the only farm that will be serviced by a bus. Pick up location will be the same as always at Lavender In the Park-should run about every 15-20 minutes!
Don’t forget there is always a chair waiting for you-see you at the farm!
Seems hard to believe that in just a little over 3 months the lavender will be blooming beautifully and it will be time for Sequim’s Annual Lavender Farm Faire!

P.S. Speaking of music….we have some great NEW acts lined up for our stage this year at Purple Haze….stay tuned for updates!!!
Recently, Rare Earth decided to tour again – much to the applause of their many fans across the country. Rare Earth has their audiences up and out of their seats dancing and singing along with their million selling classics such as “Get Ready”, “Hey Big Brother”, “Losing You”, “Born to Wander”, and “I Just Want to Celebrate” creating an atmosphere reminiscent of the Madison Square Garden Concert in 1970, the Atlantic Pop Festival in 1971 or the California Jam which was one of their most memorable concerts broadcast nationally in 1974. This concert is being offered in conjuction with the Sequim Balloon Festival which takes place Sept. 1, 2, & 3 in field right next door to our farm! We are super excited to be a sponsor of this event-so get your tickets now and come and CELEBRATE with us!

Did you know that the Purple Haze Lavender farmhouse is a vacation rental? It’s the perfect place to relax and unwind…maybe on our wide open front porch where you can sit back and enjoy the views of the lavender fields or snuggle up by our stone fireplace with a good book! Great for families or a private weekend getaway! And since we are located on the Olympic Peninsula there are lots of activities nearby which include biking, hiking, kayaking, fishing, beach combing and even great shopping in downtown Sequim. Book your stay during the end of June, July & August to take full advantage of the lavender in bloom!
Grab your camera and capture your finest lavender images ever. Sign up for photo workshops held right in the field at Purple Haze Lavender Farm each day during the Lavender Festival, July 15-17. You’ll get lots of hot image-making tips from some of the finest photographers in the area. Select from three sessions each day. Proceeds benefit the Dungeness River Audubon Center.
While we were waiting for summer to appear, we have been busy improving our lavender oil distillation area. This wonderful structure was built and designed by our friend Patrick and fits in perfectly with the farm. Now rain or shine-distilling will be a more comfortable experience for all! We hope you will join us for the distilling demos Lavender Weekend (July 15, 16 & 17, 2011)! This is a great opportunity to see the still work and get all of your questions answered!

We encourage you to come and enjoy this great Olympic Peninsula Festival, September 25th-27th, 2009……Help celebrate the watershed that keeps the Sequim-Dungeness Valley alive. There will be activities for kids and adults, music, art, food, and much more. KING FM radio station 98.1 is doing a special giveaway….Prize package includes a 2 night stay at the Quality Inn’s hot-tub suite, dinner for two at Alder Wood Bistro, dinner for two at The Sauer Kraut, tickets to a Neil Simon comedy, ‘Same Time Next Year’ for Saturday night, Sept. 26th at Olympic Theatre Arts, and gift certificates from Purple Haze Lavender Farm and Nash’s Organic Produce.
Starting this Thursday, a month & a half long program devoted to identification, natural history and preferences of winter birds on the North Olympic Peninsula will begin. This program is being offered by the Dungeness River Audubon Center at the historic railroad bridge just outside of Sequim.
The Dungeness River Audubon Society here in Sequim is a great partner in our efforts to protect the fragile environment and educating visitors and public alike about the importance of conservation and sustainable practices. We consider them an alliance with many of our goals as a organic bulk lavender producer. They help to promote Agri-tourism here in Sequim.
The winter birds program is just one of many activities in the next couple months offered at the railroad bridge center. Other events include Raptors In Winter, a special presentation with David Drummond on the weekend of Feb. 20. This will be a unique two-day class about the eagles, hawks, and falcons of our area, their adaptations for hunting and survival, and their fascinating lives during winter.
These are just some of the fun events you could participate in while staying at our Sequim Vacation Rental. With WiFi in the house and our shop in town, we would love to direct you to all the fun things that are awaitng a curious mind in Sequim!
Our community here on the Olympic Peninsula is richly diverse. Sure, we are no big apple, but with a little effort, you can come across some very lively entertainment and cultural diversions.
One such example of this is the Peninsula College’s Magic of Cinema College Film Series. As quoted from their web page: “The series seeks to present the range of possibilities of film as an art form through screenings of classics from Art Cinema and Hollywood’s Golden Age, as well as contemporary foreign and independent features, and documentaries.” If that is not culture, I don’t know what is! The film this Friday looks very interesting; The Exiles, made in 1961, is said to be one of the most accurate portrayals of contemporary Native American life ever put to film.
The series runs through March, and includes such diverse titles as 1000 Journals, a documentary about lives
touched by travel journals as well as a double feature night dedicated to Paul Newman.
One of the reasons that we decided to start our Wholesale lavender business here in Sequim was because we felt the community was thriving and had much to offer its citizens. We hope that you will take the opportunity to come and visit us here in Sequim on the Olympic Peninsula. We have a beautiful Sequim Vacation Rental here on the lavender farm we invite you to stay in while visiting the beautiful Dungeness Valley!
