Long Row Lavender

Get to know a little bit about the lavender sachets you love! Long Row Lavender is a farm located in Wright City, MO. We have the pleasure of working with them to create our beautiful lavender sachets and offer an elevated PK experience to all of you. 

A Note From The Farm

My name is Tracy Smith and together with my husband Chad, we own Long Row Lavender.  At this point, I'm a mother of four young adults but we started the farm when our kids were between the ages of 5 and 13. I have a degree in Business Marketing but my real joy in life has been staying at home and raising our children. My husband's career afforded me that privilege and I'm so grateful for the time spent with our family working our farm and watching it grow. Now that our kids are adults, my marketing/business skills are being used to run Long Row, and it has been so fun to step into a new season of marketing with the invention of social media. I deeply enjoy my family, growing in my faith, and planning/executing new projects with my husband. We will likely never retire because work is good, and we want to do well with the work we've been given.

When did Long Row Lavender begin?

We began planting lavender on our farm in 2009, went to local farmers' markets for years, then built the barn and opened to the public in 2016. The café addition was opened in 2019.

How much lavender do you grow annually?

Over the years we've grown between 1,000-1,200 lavender plants per year.

Tell us about the activities you offer at the farm. Can people host events there? 

The farm is diversified in activities from venue rentals for small events and gatherings to our café that serves fresh desserts, coffee, tea, lavender lemonade, and  lunch selections. Our gift shop houses handmade bath and body products made onsite, as well as home decor. We host three makers' markets each year to help bring a festival-type event to the farm and support other local businesses. We grow several flowers throughout the season including daffodils, peonies, four varieties of lavender, zinnias, sunflowers, and Mexican sage bush. We have walking trails around the property and folks can enjoy their lunch in several of our outdoor seating areas. Workshops are held nearly every Friday and Saturday where local artists teach watercolors, yoga, pilates, macrame, wreath making, etc. The farm is open through mid-December as Christmas is my favorite! 

We read about your workshops. What kind of classes do you teach? 

We have several classes like Growing Lavender 101, Creating A Lavender Wreath, Flower Arranging, and A Flower Crown Workshop. We also host a sweet "Fairy Garden" event for kids in the spring.
