LAVENDER
IN THE TEXAS HILL COUNTRY


Lavender The Texas Hill Country is rapidly becoming a hotbed for lavender farms.

The type of soil, weather and entrepreneurial spirit found here have produced many farms with thousands of plants to rival their famous cousins in France.

Smell the aroma? Lavender is just one more reason you have to visit the Texas Hill Country! The adventurous spirit of this new industry is the same spirit that brought the pioneers who settled this rugged landscape.
