A Farm with History

Owners Kim and Rand Kermeier, first came across the property on a beautiful fall day in 2019 while exploring the area. They spent several years updating and restoring the property and its buildings,  and planting lavender. Lavender Bluff Farm opened for its first season in 2023.

The farmstead was originally built by Jacob Peterson in 1863 and is a replicate of the family homestead in Sweden.  The home, barn, and buildings were built using oak from the land and stone from the bluffs on the property. In 1980, the farm was purchased and turned into the Great River Bed and Breakfast.  Now, the farm is enjoyed by the many visitors coming to enjoy the natural beauty of the lavender fields as well as the farm’s shop which sells its wide line of Lavender and CBD products.

A Variety of Offerings
