Our farmhouse-style shop features a variety of unique lavender infused products, including an assortment of handcrafted sachets, soaps, lotions, pet accessories, dried herbs, and more. These products have been locally developed and produced on Old Mission Peninsula, and allow guests to discover and appreciate the color, smell, and taste of lavender. Read more about our products here.
6,000 lavender plants of 11 different varieties are planted in the 12 acre parcel that is the Secret Garden. Surrounding the gift shop on both sides, the lavender fields boast bright, beautiful, purple blooms beginning in mid-June and continuing through the month of July. While some of the lavender is harvested before bloom, we do reserve parts of the field for u-pick lavender and a beautiful photo opportunity! Read more about our lavender here.
Ice Cream & Light Bites
Dive into a cup of one of our custom flavors of Traverse City's own Moomers Ice Cream, available in special Secret Garden flavors made with our own lavender and strawberries. In addition, we offer our classic lavender lemonade by the glass and a variety of freshly baked goods! Browse our current offerings.
During the summer season our strawberry plants boast beautiful, delicious, and spray-free berries that we open for u-pick! Strawberry u-pick generally begins early to mid-June. Visit the u-pick schedule.
Our large open-air perennial garden blooms in June and continues through October. U-pick flowers range per stem from 50¢ to $2. Snips are available for use and we sell a variety of vintage vases in the gift shop.
