Our page is about our farm in the Santa Ynez Valley California, in the town of Los Olivos, in Santa Barbara county. It is a lavender farm. We grow grosso and provence lavenders (both French). The field blooms once per year for several months beginning in May through August, May and June and part of July the field is at its best. The color is a purple haze. It changes to a pinky/red in August. We begin cutting and harvesting the field in June. We spend about a day and a half each week cutting and drying the lavender and then either distilling the flowers for oil immediately or storing the buds for later distillation and for the making of sachets, neck and eye pillows.To visit Clairmont Farms and get the most from your holiday in Los Olivos, create itinerary details personal to you using our Los Olivos vacation planning website.
The farm is open to the public daily throughout the year and there is not charge for entrance. We are proud of our creams and lotions that we make on a daily basis. Everything is fresh. We have a small store on the farm an we sell our products there. We also sell at some boutiques and smaller grocery stores. Our biggest business is becoming the website. Orders are placed by people who have visited the farm or find us on the internet. We have specials and sales during the year and a loyal following of customers.
We deeply appreciate the opportunity to serve the needs of others and that makes us able to live on this farm and in our beloved Santa Ynez Valley.
This farm was once a successful thoroughbred nursery and training facility and we were fortunate enough to have had some splendid broodmares and runners. Today our horses are back to jumping over fences which is how I started my life long love affair with horses.
We look forward to seeing you when you visit the area.

Beautiful farm! Nice people! I lost my sun hat when I was shopping there. After I called the store, the Gentleman was very helpful and they mailed it to me same day. I would recommend this place to everyone!
