Pierre Capron and Michele Judd started the lavender farm in the spring of 2017. Both Michele and Pierre grew up on dairy farms in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, and are proud to be the next generation of farmers, working the same land as Michele’s grandparents once did. We are a multi-generational farm family, hoping to develop a successful business that can one day be passed onto our children. Learn more about this land: Imagine camping at a romantic lavender farm at the top of Vermont. Lavender Essentials of Vermont sits on top of a 1,600' hill in the quaint little town of Derby, Vermont. Nestled in a hillside meadow, the campsites are only a short walk from the lavender fields and 360' of breathtaking views. You will want to bring your camera! Stay with us at our farm, and take in the quaint, picturesque countryside. We offer a peaceful site, away from it all, to relax and experience Vermont. In the meadows you can pick wild flowers, take an afternoon nap, wander the trails, bird watch, or listen to frogs and catch fireflies in the evening. At night you will be amazed at the star filled sky! Day or night it's hard to deny the peaceful and romantic feeling you get from the lavender farm! The farm has a Lavender Labyrinth, fields of sunflowers, chamomile, mint (and other herbs and vegetables), bees, informational placards along walking trails, cozy private seating, a gazebo for special events, a hidden geocache, and even a gift shop! There are lots of things to see and do on the farm. Especially during bloom season—June-September. Check out our event calendar and follow us on Facebook to stay up to date on what's happening at the farm (Lavender-Essentials.com). Whether it’s nature or culture you seek, peace or thrills, this unique area of the Northeast Kingdom offers something for everyone! Your hosts, Michele and Pierre, are locals and they know all the best and unadvertised places to explore. Ask them about local dives and even haunted hikes. Just 30 minutes away is one of the best bike parks in New England, Kingdom Trails in Burke.  Also nearby is Jay Peak, a ski resort with an indoor water park, golf course, ice arena, climbing walls, and much more! The farm is located just 2 miles from the Canadian border. Magog, Sherbrooke, and Montreal offer a taste of international cultural that will appease your Quebecois desires! If you plan to visit Canada while you are here, remember you must have your passport!  Stay at one of the most beautiful places on earth, and allow us to help you find peace and tranquility, or we can be your personal adventure guide! We go out of our way to provide you with a memorable stay, and do our best to facilitate the kind of vacation you are looking for!  We love dogs, but we must insist dogs be kept on a leash at all times. Dogs are not allowed in the farm's fields because we grow culinary grade crops and must protect them. All dog waste must be cleaned immediately and is restricted to designated pet rest areas. Owners will be held responsible for any damages. Please keep your campsite clean.  Fires are allowed, as long as winds are not strong. Our weather can be breezy, and exposed at times, so pack according. Bring a sweater and a kite! There's a reason we have a 140ft wind turbine.

Oh My Stars
Eclipse Field Camping
Once in a lifetime experience at the farm! We were afraid that with the number of people coming for the Eclipse that it would get too crowded and noisy but everyone was spaced out. We definitely want to go back again in the summer to experience the Lavender Fields

Sunflowers at Sunset
Wonderful experience
Michele is a wonderful person and she organized her campground perfectly for the very busy eclipse day. On top of that, she had food, games and a gift shop ready.

Eclipse Parking & Camping - Stellar
Amazing sunset views!
We stayed the night before the eclipse and went into it knowing it’d be crowded, cold and muddy, but they made sure to give everyone ample amount of space and had plenty of firewood for purchase. They did a great job managing 100+ campers during the eclipse, so I’m sure any other night would be even better. We had an amazing view of the sunset over the mountains too! Would definitely return.

Curiouser and curiouser!
Breathtaking views and better hosts
Michele and Pierre were amazing hosts. They were available anytime I called or had any questions. The food and gift shop were amazing and delicious. The best part by far was the view. It was breathtaking. On top of all that, the total eclipse (of my heart) was such a great experience that I cannot put in words. I am very thankful for the entire experience that wouldn't have been possible without Michele and Pierre's hospitality!
