Millbrook Lavender Farm, is nestled in one of the most picturesque valleys of the Great Smoke Mountains in East Tennessee. The initial planting of 4000 lavender plants, consisting of both “English and French” varieties, was completed in the Spring of 2011. Surrounded by the beautiful mountain tops and bordered by the crystal clear mountain creek, Millbrook Creek, the lavender farm is destined to be one of the premiere tourist stops in the Gatlinburg – Pigeon Forge area. Started by Larry and Pat White the farm is located in Sevierville, Tennessee on Henry Town road, off highway 416 and Richard Cove Road.
The farm has produced many crops over several generations, mainly tobacco and vegetables; and provided a lively hood based on these crops. The old tobacco barns and spring house foundation (used to keep perishables cool with mountain springs) are still a part of the farm. However, we have now introduced a new crop to the land – lavender.
The initial planting of 4000 lavender plants consist of various varieties such as Melissa, Munstead, Royal Velvet, Grosso, Provence, and Super. The various varieties of lavender offers different characteristics of color, aroma, flower and essential oils. The combination of the different colors in the field create a spectacular view and each species produces an incredible aroma when in bloom. Visitors will be able to stroll through the fields, cut their own bouquets, or observe the distilling process, during the harvest (summer months), as the essential oils are extracted from the lavender, and shop at the old home store. Millbrook Lavender Farm will offer a wide selection of lavender products from fragrance products, culinary and therapeutic. Dine in the cafe located in the old farm house, offering a variety of delicious lavender flavored foods.
