Lavender – Colorado’s Newest Cash Crop and Agri-Tourism Destination
Prized for its perfume, medicinal properties and beautiful color, lavender has been one of the most popular herbs for centuries. Currently its use is enjoying resurgence due to a societal emphasis on health, relaxation, stress reduction and culinary desires.
Uses of lavender include: fresh and dried bundles with flower arrangements, essential oils and hydrosols, fine handcrafted decorative arts. Lavandula x-intermedia, Lavindin, is used in health & body care items; lotions, soaps, mists, pillows, potpourri and sachets.
Lavandula Angustifolia is used to accent food and beverages, as well as health & body care items.
As a crop, lavender is well-suited to the Colorado environment. It is a drought-tolerant and low maintenance perennial. Lavender thrives in our hot, dry, high elevation and lean soil.
With the growing popularity of lavender, our audience is also growing. People purposely seek out lavender because they love it. Our Lavender Motor-Coach Tours on Friday attract predominately females of higher income brackets. Yet, we see individuals who are enjoying their years of retirement looking for joyous, friendly events to talk about when they return home. Our Saturday Festival at Palisade Veteran’s Memorial Park brings in people of all ages looking for local, home-grown, and handcrafted products. Sunday’s Self-Guided Tours, allow those weekend visitors to stop along their routes home, finding lavender farms and shops throughout the Western Slope. Lavender is an ever growing
business and showground, just as our audience is, from statewide to nationwide.
We are also a proud member and supporter of the United States Lavender Growers Association.
