Explore Missouri and experience the beauty of Long Row Lavender farm

Long Row Lavender is a family-owned farm located at 26549 S. Stracks Church Road in Wright City, Missouri. It's about a three-hour drive from Kansas City via Interstate 70 East.

The conception of the farm started in 2007

Owners and parents of four, Chad and Tracy Smith, purchased the property in 2007. They built and opened a barn on their 15-acre property in May 2016 to serve as a boutique. Visit here to see Long Row's products. In 2019, a cafe was added. One of the reasons why they chose to grow and harvest lavender is because the animals were consuming their vegetable garden.

The barn houses a lavender gift shop consisting of handmade items from the farm. There are also weekly workshops in the barn taught by local artists, and some are already sold out. The Lavender Growing 101 and Pie Crust Making workshops probably filled fast.

This farm also hosts maker's market events where venders can showcase their talent and items upon application approval. The Spring Maker's Market is set to occur on June 10, 2023.

With spring upon us finally, it's also when the farm opens all the way through mid-December. It's open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Wednesday through Saturday). There's also a cafe that daily serves coffee and desserts and it also serves lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Other plants that grow on the farm are peonies, zinnias, and sunflowers.
