Sequim Lavender Farm Faire Information Experience the original Heritage Lavender Farms ­that have made Sequim famous for 17 years!

Come join us at the Faire! Our Member Farms For more than 17 years the world has descended on the Sequim-Dungeness Valley to experience the joys of lavender and the original Sequim lavender farms that started it all! The Sequim Lavender Farm Faire – “The Faire” – connects you to all of the historical and world-famous farms that you have visited or heard about and that have made Sequim an international lavender destination. The Sequim Lavender Farm Faire is your “go to” location for the summer. The original Heritage Lavender Farm Tour is the lifeenhancing event that will inspire and amaze you, and the Arts & Crafts Faire in the Park at Carrie Blake Park/James Center is the free, stunning family friendly all-day park venue. The Story of Sequim Lavender The Sequim lavender movement began in 1995 when a group of passionate farmers sought to restore the agricultural heritage of the fertile Sequim valley. Today, the Sequim Lavender Farmers Association grows and supports the production of premium quality lavender on family owned farms. Why Do You Charge For the Lavender Farm Tour? The Faire is our annual fundraising event … a festival at each farm on tour every summer to raise dollars for our programs, the community, the industry-wide lavender conference and to help us meet our mission of promoting, educating and inspiring the importance of lavender and all its benefits, and giving back to the community. Revenue from ticket/button sales helps offset the high costs of producing this valley-wide event and taking care of thousands of visitors from around the world.

Ciscoe Morris Returns to the Opening Ceremonies! Come join us at 11:15 a.m. on Friday, July 19, for the official opening of the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire at the Arts & Crafts Faire in the Park at Carrie Blake Park/James Center. Northwest favorite media personality and master gardener Cisco Morris returns to Sequim to anoint us all with lavender buds and his great energy and knowledge. SEQUIM LAVENDER FARM FAIRE 2013

We give free booth space to more than 15 nonprofit organizations so all the money they raise goes directly to their programs. Our members also give generously.

Jardin du Soleil lavender farm For owners Jordan and Paul Schiefen, it hardly seems possible more than two years have passed since they purchased Jardin du Soleil Lavender Farm and a year since they hosted their first Lavender Farm Faire. Yet the couple find themselves immersed in everything lavender as they prepare the farm for this year’s Faire. “We are excited for our second year on tour,” said Jordan Schiefen. “We have great things planned this year.” Great things always include plenty of activities for the younger set, most likely because the Schiefens have two young children. This year, 4-H ponies and crafts

14

— such as planting flower seeds and making necklaces — will keep the youngsters busy while adults enjoy bountiful lavender fields and perhaps a glass of wine or a favorite brew. Before relocating to Sequim, Jordan and Paul owned an insurance business in Santa Barbara, Calif. However, California crowds began to wear thin, so they packed up the family and discovered all that Sequim had to offer, including a lavender farm that just happened to be for sale. Former owners Pam and Randy Nicholson gave the Schiefens a crash course in harvesting and distilling lavender. And,

of course, the importance of the annual Lavender Farm Faire and how to get ready for the multitude of visitors who descend upon Sequim during the event. Paul said it was a steep learning curve, but they loved it then and now, the love remains alive. Paul and Jordan look forward to greeting visitors during the Sequim Lavender Weekend on their farm. Jardin du Soleil Lavender Farm is at 3932 Sequim-Dungeness Way. For more information, visit www.jardindusoleil.com or call 360-582-1185.

Lost mountain lavender Farm

Lost Mountain Lavender owners Monica Quevedo and Ray Veihl will host visitors for the second year during the Sequim Lavender Farm Faire. Transplants to Sequim from Orange County, Calif., the couple says they have found their own piece of heaven in the 3-acre farm on Taylor Cutoff Road. They were on the fast track the first year to learn all the ins and outs of lavender farming and how to make Lost Mountain’s signature products, including soaps, lotions, bath salts, lip balm and essential oil. Although they opened their farm at last summer’s Faire,

16

Quevedo and Veihl didn’t feel quite ready for the onslaught of visitors. But, said Quevedo, “We are looking forward to this year, the farm is fully functional and there will be a lot more going on.” She calls the weeks and days leading up to the Faire crazy. “There is a lot to do, but we love it.” With views of the majestic Olympic Mountains, there is plenty of room for picnicking, enjoying homemade goodies, a photo stop at the popular running waterwheel and of course, meandering through the endless rows of lav-

ender, stopping to snip a bunch to take home. Live llamas should be a hit with the younger set, as will children’s book author Sally Harris, who will sign copies of her books. For the athletically minded, a personal trainer from SportsFit Training Center will give tips on working out. Lost Mountain Lavender is 1.5 miles south of U.S. Highway 101 at 1541 Taylor Cutoff Road.

SEQUIM LAVENDER FARM FAIRE 2013

Olympic lavender Farm For the past 16 years Olympic Lavender Farm has been a popular stop as part of the Sequim Lavender Weekend. Always one of the six or so farms on tour, owner Mary BorlandLiebsch and her late husband Steve, were one of the first on board to grow lavender in Sequim, which in turn led to an annual lavender weekend in mid-summer. Now, Borland-Liebsch and her husband, Bruce Liebsch, say it’s time to retire. For those who have loved wandering Olympic’s lovely lavender fields, this will be the last year to do so. “We’ve loved it, but we want to do other things,” Borland-Liebsch says. “I’m ready to have my summers free.” Borland-Leibsch was one of the founders

SEQUIM LAVENDER FARM FAIRE 2013

of the lavender movement back in 1995. That first year, the Borlands planted nine rows of Provence lavender. By 1999, more lavender was in the ground and a studio was added for drying lavender. Soon, Borland-Leibsch began selling lavender products and then opened the farm for the lavender weekend. And the rest, as they say, is history. The lavender weekend typically attracts about 30,000 visitors, most of which tour Olympic Lavender Farm with its lush fields of the aromatic purple plants and a panoramic view of the Olympic Mountains. The farm is up for sale, but until it is sold, the couple will continue to harvest the lavender, just not show it off to the world. To be sure, this year’s Lavender Farm Faire

will be bittersweet for the couple. “We look forward to the weekend every year,” says Borland-Leibsch. “I like talking to the people who visit and answering their questions.” But, it is time for a change and for other adventures for the renowned and well-loved lavender farmer. Be sure to visit Olympic Lavender Farm to wish Mary and Bruce well in their future endeavors and to enjoy goodies from Crumb Grabbers Bakery and Café. There also will be U-pick, plants and lavender products available. Olympic Lavender Farm is at 1432 Marine Drive. For more information, visit www.olympiclavenderfarm.com or call 360-683-4475.

Purple haze lavender Farm

Everything is coming up purple at the aptly named Purple Haze Lavender Farm, including somehow, the chickens and bunnies. That’s not unusual for the popular farm nestled in the rolling hills just outside of the Sequim city limits. Last year, for instance, crowds enjoyed not only rows and rows of heady lavender, vendors and artisans, a variety of farm-fresh food, lavender ice cream and the famous lavender margaritas, but one the farm’s resident peacocks had a brood of new peachicks to show off. Purple Haze is a farm framed by a valley

20

of open space and vistas of the Olympic Mountains. The lavender fields contain more than 15,000 plants of more than 50 varieties. From afar, the rows of lavender show off blooms of white and pink to shades of violet and deep purple On more than one occasion Purple Haze has been described as a destination, not just a stop along the way. Owner Mike Reichner said he and his farm managers create an experience for folks to remember and to share with friends and relatives. This is the 17th year Mike and Rosalind

Reichner have opened their farm for the lavender weekend. The couple also have a retail store in downtown Sequim. “Expect a total sensory overload when you get out of your car at our farm,” Mike said. “The Purple Haze experience is unforgettable.” And expect the unexpected, like purple chickens and bunnies. Purple Haze Lavender Farm is at 180 Bell Bottom Road. For more information, visit www.purplehazelavender.com or call 360-582-1131.

victor’s lavender Farm & nursery Victor Gonzalez, owner of Victor’s Lavender, is well-known among lavender farmers and is ofttimes considered the North Peninsula’s go-to expert when it comes to growing the purple plant. After growing and propagating lavender for the past 16 years, Victor and his wife, Maribel, are opening their farm for this year’s Lavender Farm Faire. Why now? “It takes time to build a business and this was the right time for us to open,” Victor explained. “We also want to support the (lavender) industry here in Sequim.” However, Victor is no stranger to the

22

lavender weekend and the Farm Tour. For several years, he gave demonstrations regarding propagating and planting lavender during the weekend. This year, he will be on his own farm, showing off fields of luscious lavender, discussing every which way to grow the perfect plants and inviting visitors into the just-opened gift shop filled with every sort of lavender product, including a cosmetic line made by Maribel. Victor grew up farming, first in Mexico and then in California. But, until he moved to Sequim, he knew nothing about growing lavender. He said he learned the hard way, “making every mistake imaginable.”

In 2005, he put in the first lavender plants on his land. Today, he has 100 different varieties of lavender in the two acres west of Sequim. Victor has traveled the world helping others learn about lavender, how to grow it and how to making a living in the lavender business, and in fact, in 2011, was given an award from none other than President Obama for his work with farmers both in the United States and in other countries. Victor’s Lavender Farm is at 3743 Old Olympic Highway. For more information, visit www.victorslavender.com or call 360-4615811/360-681-7930.

GEORGE Washington INN & lavender Farm Nestled halfway between Sequim and Port Angeles along Finn Hall Road, the stately George Washington Inn turns passersby heads. It does closely resemble George and Martha Washington’s mansion some 2,000 miles away at Mount Vernon, near Alexandria, Va. Add to that the lush fields of lavender and tourists have the perfect stop either during the annual Heritage Lavender Farm Faire or simply visiting the ever-beautiful North Olympic Peninsula.

24

Janet and Dan Abbott, owners of the inn and lavender farm, relocated from South Carolina nearly 11 years ago. Once the inn was ready to open as a bed and breakfast, the couple began planting berries and fruit trees, and — you guessed it — lavender. Dan calls lavender a versatile herb with its anesthetic, aromatic and culinary properties. “There are so many ways to develop the product taken from the lavender plant,” he said.

This is the third year the Abbotts will open their farm as part of the Lavender Farm Faire. With a gift shop, lavender fields aplenty and lavender high tea on the piazza (separate ticket purchase), George Washington Inn & Washington Lavender is a must-see. George Washington is at 939 Finn Hall Road, and Washington Lavender Farm is at 965 Finn Hall Road. For more information, visit www.walavender.com or call 360-452-4877.

Lavender fields are forever in Sequim By Mary Powell

“Lavender Fields Forever,” an original acrylic painting by artist Lee Oskar, was selected earlier this year as the official poster and cover for this year’s Farm Faire program. The simple, somewhat stark painting leaves no question lavender fields are bounteous in the Sequim environs. The original work actually was painted prior to Oskar’s first visit to Sequim. During his musical appearance at last summer’s Sequim OSKAR Balloon Festival, Oskar shared the painting with Mike and Rosalind Reichner, owners of Purple Haze Lavender Farm, and, as Oskar said, “It was if the painting had come to life.” And yes, you read that right about a musical appearance. Turns out, Oskar is a renowned harmonica player and musician as well as an accomplished painter. Oskar is a founding member and former lead harmonica player for SEQUIM LAVENDER FARM FAIRE 2013

the funk/jazz group War, which won him international renown from 1969-1993. A prominent composer, his music has been featured on movie sound tracks and television commercials. He introduced his own line of harmonicas in 1983 and today they have become a household name when it comes to the instrument sometimes called the mouth organ. Oskar was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1948 and came to the United States at the age of 18, where he settled in Los Angeles. He now lives in the Seattle area. Back to Oskar’s other creative process, that of painting. He said the many years of exploring the solitary back roads and coastlines of the Pacific Northwest gave him his visual catalog for his work. At an early age, Oskar began drawing with a ballpoint pen on sheets of typing paper. Some of his early work reflects a detailed, black and white, pen and ink drawing style. Oskar has been very generous in his support of the Sequim Lavender Farmers Association through “Dreams We Share,” said Scott Nagel, executive director of SLFA.

“Dreams We Share” is an innovative endeavor envisioned by Oskar that advances awareness and raises funds for local charities. All of the proceeds from the sales of Giclee prints of the “Lavender Fields Forever” poster image will be contributed to SLFA, Nagel said. Oskar also is collaborating with Wind Rose Cellars, a Sequim winery that has produced a Pinot Grigio that features the “Lavender Fields Forever” artwork as its label. Both the wine and the posters will be sold at the Arts & Crafts Faire in the Park at Carrie Blake Park/James Center during the Farm Faire weekend. The wine also is available at Wind Rose’s tasting room in downtown Sequim and at several of the farms on tour during the weekend. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the special series wine also will be donated back to the association, Oskar said. Oskar will be available to sign posters. For more information regarding Lee Oskar, his music and his paintings, visit www.leeoskarpaintings.com, www.leeoskarmusic.com or www.leeoskarharmonicas.com. 27

DOWNTOWN SEQUIM HISTORICAL MURAL

In 1996, Sequim 2000, which was a committee of the Sequim-Dungeness Valley Chamber of Commerce, completed work on the Lehman’s Mark & Pak mural project. More than $40,000 was raised over the course of two years to complete 154 contiguous feet of murals depicting life in Sequim at the turn of the 20th century. In 2000, the Lehman’s building was sold and the murals subsequently were removed. They’ve been in storage ever since. The Olympic View Community Foundation (formerly the Sequim Community Foundation) has undertaken a new mural project to bring these murals back out into the community for every citizen to enjoy. OVCF is working with the City of Sequim and local business owners downtown to raise support and funding for inclusion of these murals in the new city hall to be built in 2014 and around town in key locations. Come see these beautiful and historical murals!

Wine & Beer Garden

Sponsored by Olympic Peninsula Wineries and Olympic Distributing. Olympic Peninsula Wineries presents a very special selection of wines from member wineries and cideries, available for tasting by the glass or to purchase by the bottle. Wineries/cideries include Black Diamond Winery, Camaraderie Cellars, Eaglemount Winery, Fair Winds Winery, Finnriver Farm and Cidery, Harbinger Winery, Olympic Cellars and Wind Rose Cellars. Wind Rose Cellars is featuring “Lavender Fields Forever.” The Faire poster art for 2013 is “Lavender Fields Forever,” painted by acclaimed musician and artist Lee Oskar. He is famously known as a legendary harmonica virtuoso and one of

the original founding members of the Latin, R&B, soul, funk band War who composed and recorded many top-10 chart hits including the songs “Low Rider,” “Cisco Kid” and “Why Can’t We Be Friends.” Oskar is working with Wind Rose Cellars and they have produced “Lavender Fields Forever,” a 100 percent Pinot Grigio made right here in Sequim, from 2012 Yakima Valley grapes. The wine features the 2013 Sequim Lavender Farm Faire artwork which Oskar donated. The wine will be sold at the Olympic Peninsula Wineries Wine & Beer garden at the Arts & Crafts Faire in the Park at Carrie Blake Park/James Center, at the Wind Rose tasting room in downtown Sequim, and at several farms during the Faire weekend. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Sequim Lavender Farmers Association. Oskar has been very generous in his support of the Sequim Lavender Farmers Association through “Dreams We Share,” an innovative endeavor he envisioned. By making available for purchase Giclee prints of his original paintings, his project advances awareness and raises funds for local charities. Go to www.leeoskarpaintings. com. Proceeds from the sales of the Giclee prints of “Lavender Fields Forever” also be contributed to the association. Olympic Cellars Winery will feature two new wine releases: 2012 Madeleine Angevine — A limited supply is available for the festival of the only locally grown and produced wine on the Olympic Peninsula. Madeleine Angevine is a coastal varietal grape that was grown at the Dungeness Valley Vineyard in Sequim. A light white wine, crisp and floral with a lovely minerality. Perfect for a summer afternoon. 2011 Barn Nouveau — Blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. A delicious homage to Olympic Cellars’ barn, built in 1890.  Past, present and future, we are honored to be caretakers of this heirloom treasure. Finnriver Farms is featuring special limited-edition Lavender Black Currant Seasonal Hard Cider made with locally grown organic lavender. 39
