Hidden Spring Lavender Farm is a hidden gem in Skillman. For owners Steve and Marie Voorhees, growing lavender started off as a passion project to brighten up their fields, but it turned into something much more.
Six years ago, the Voorhees began growing lavender. They started with only 1,000 plants, but have now expanded to over 5,000. Three years ago, they opened the lavender shop, which became Marie’s full-time job in 2015. The experience, as she says, has been delightful and satisfying.
Unlike other lavender farms in the area, everything at Hidden Spring Lavender Farm is done by hand, from the harvesting to the production. They offer a variety of products, like soaps, lotions, pillows, flower arrangements and gift baskets, at a wide range of prices that are accessible for everyone.
“A special thing about lavender is that it’s great for calming, soothing and clearing the mind,” says Marie. It also makes for a great corporate gift! Hidden Spring Lavender Farm’s gift baskets are a popular item, and can be customized for any occasion.
