Who We are
Lavender Oasis Farms was established to use the land in an environmentally sustainable way. The farm’s owners decided in 2016 to plant lavender plants rather than renting the farm lands to farmers who would use the lands for cash crops and use chemicals which would harm the environment.
Our first planting in September 2016 was of 20,000 lavender plants and as the farm grows the plan is to have 40 acres of the farm fully planted.
We at Lavender Oasis Farms have a passion for children living in poverty and for families who work hard but are still unable to feed and clothe themselves. A glaring example of this lies 20 minutes from the farm in the city of Hamilton where one in every five families is living in poverty. It is our goal to use the income from the farm to fund local charities in Hamilton, Ontario.
