Hill Country Lavender

Year round retail location

Hill Country Lavender’s year round location in Brieger Pottery offers a full line of our more than 70 lavender-related products for sale, including nine varieties of soap, sachets, lavender oil, linen spray, lavender bubble-bath, eye pillows and a variety of lavender-growing publications. 

Robb Kendrick and Jeannie Ralston started Hill Country Lavender in 1999. Kendrick, an award-winning photographer, traveled to Provence to shoot a lavender harvest for a National Geographic story, and soon after planted lavender in Blanco. In 2001 Jeannie opened the lavender field to the public for viewing and harvesting, and a new agricultural industry in Texas was born.

Blanco native Tasha Brieger (Jan and Jon Brieger’s daughter), who came to work for Robb as a photo assistant in 1999, while a high school junior, was later recruited by Jeannie to help with the growing lavender business. Tasha was involved with the development and expansion of the lavender product line, and during the 2004 and 2005 seasons was the farm’s manager. In 2006, Tasha—already well versed in all things lavender—purchased Hill Country Lavender. Tasha has worked hard on updating the look and feel of the company by expanding the line of lavender products to over 70 different items and re-designing the packaging.

Hill Country Lavender’s farm store and lavender field is open to the public during the blooming season, which runs from mid-May thru July. The farm setting is a spectacular panorama of undulating land and beautiful live oaks. But the close-up view is the most stunning. More than 2,500 lavender plants spread in neat rows across a two-acre hilltop. Visitors are invited to enjoy the field and visit the farm store stocked with a full line of lavender products.
