Meli’s Lavender Farm

One of the newest small lavender operations in Sequim is Meli’s Lavender Farm. But in the universe of lavender, it’s no newcomer. It is an expansion of Victor’s Lavender and is owned by Victor Gonzalez and his brother and sister-in-law, Sergio and Monica Gonzalez. Victor is one of Sequim’s most expert growers and consults internationally on lavender cultivation.

The new farm adds 1,000 plants to Victor’s current operation of 150 varieties and over 3,500 plants. Victor’s wife, Mirabel, makes more than 30 lavender products. The expansion is an attempt to keep up with high demand for his plants and products.

I visited Victor’s original farm at the Lavender Festival two years ago here and found him very engaging. He has an interesting history with lavender and has been an important source of information and plants for the Sequim Valley and beyond.

Earnings from the new operation, Meli’s Lavender Farm, will go toward the education of Victor’s niece, Melissa, at Western Washington University. The farm is located on West Diane Drive off Elizabeth Lane which intersects with Old Olympic Highway about a quarter mile west of North Fifth Avenue.

  1. I finally bought a few lavender plants for my balcony last week. I like the scent and the pop of purple they bring. Wish I could be there to see the fields. 🙂

  2. Victor and his family are obviously hard-working and knowledgeable entrepreneurs. So happy to know that profits for the newest operation are going toward their niece’s education. Lucky girl! I also hope that they consider establishing scholarships for others who may need some financial help. Good wishes and good luck to this energetic family!

  3. Love that the lavender farm is named after his niece Kay.. all these gorgeous images make me want to plant lavender en masse 😀
