Red Rock Ranch and Farms, located in Concho, Arizona, has over 45,000 lavender plants and twelve different varieties growing in the fields. As one of the largest growers of lavender in the western hemisphere, Mike and Christine Teeple started planting lavender initially as landscaping for their 130 acre ranch. In addition to the 45,000 plants in the ground, the lavender farm propagates around 10,000 to 15,000 plants in the greenhouse for sale to local people who need plants that are acclimated to grow in similar type climates and altitudes.
Red Rock Ranch and Farms grows several types of lavender including the French lavenders, Provence and Grosso and the English lavenders, Royal Velvet, Buena Vista, Vera, and pink Melissa. The lavender is grown and harvested by hand each summer.
Red Rock Ranch and Farms' lavender is grown in the pristine climate of the White Mountains of Arizona at an elevation of 6,100 feet or 1860 meters. Lavender grown at high altitudes exhibits a higher ester content than lavender grown at lower altitudes. Compared to lavender grown elsewhere in the world, Red Rock Ranch and Farms' lavender would best compare to the lavender grown in the Provence area of France. The lavender grown in Plateau de Vaucluse, on Mt. Ventoux, is grown at an altitude of 6273 feet or 1912 meters. Which to our knowledge, is the highest altitude where lavender is commercially grown in the world. This would make our lavender at Red Rock Ranch & Farms the second highest altitude lavender that is commercially grown in the world.
100% pure high altitude lavender essential oil and lavender hydrosol is produced from our state-of-the-art distillation system. High altitude lavender essential oil has a well balanced fragrance that is superior to many others and is often the choice of aromatherapists. Lavender plants are grown in our greenhouse nursery and are for sale.
