Clairmont Farm is a family owned lavender farm located in the Santa Ynez Valley in Los Olivos Ca. We grow the original Grosso variety lavender, its oil is known for its many healing qualities and Provence lavender for both culinary and oil. The fields are beautiful with the backdrop of the Santa Ynez Mountains. Three hundred year old oak trees dot the grounds. Filmmakers, photographers and painters arrive each year and apply their craft. The driveway is lined with olive trees that were planted by the Spanish Missionaries over 175 years ago. Our farm is entirely organic. We harvest both with the traditional method of cutting each plant by hand, banding, and hanging the bundles in the barn (for sale in the shop year round) and also with a small hand held hedge clipper for the remainder of the fields to be used for oil distillation.
