Find beauty, history, and tranquility in our lavender fields.

Welcome to Shades of Lavender, where we’re committed to preserving our lavender fields and finding new ways to enhance our farm, butterfly gardens, dried botanicals, sunflowers, and forest mushrooms. Our vision is to provide visitors with a warm, inviting, and tranquil destination that promotes peace and calm. We are a place where friends, family, and strangers can come together to make lasting memories.

Our History

In May 2021, Anthony Tran purchased Shades of Lavender with his daughters. Aiming to continue its legacy, we’re open year round. We encourage you to visit and enjoy the quiet serenity of our lavender farm in Mattawan, Michigan. As you walk through the shaded tunnel of white pines that leads into our lavender fields, you’ll find yourself immersed in nature. Exit the path through our woods and you’ll be struck with the scent and beauty of the fields.


In the summer months, when it’s in bloom, we offer U-pick lavender. We hand harvest our lavender with a sickle and pack it into our copper still to make essential oil and hydrosol through steam distillation. Our on-site farm shop offers a variety of lavender bath and body products, candles, and wax melts for your home. We also produce our own hand-blended tea, artisanal honey, and a range of other unique items.


At Shades of Lavender, we’re always looking for ways to enhance our farm and provide our customers with the best possible experience. Please visit us often to see all of the new experiences we’re planning for the coming year and the years to come. And, more than anything, we welcome you to come enjoy the beauty and tranquility of our farm, where we can help you – and your family – reconnect with nature.
