Why A Farm?
Is there any other marriage retreat where on your breaks you can cuddle baby goats, relax in a butterfly house, or take a stroll to visit some Alpacas? Spring Creek Lavender desires for people to experience rest and restoration through the beauty of God’s creation. Whether it’s relaxing by the pond or smelling and cutting some fresh flowers our location will allow you to relax and enjoy time with your spouse reconnecting and engaging at a deeper level.
Spring Creek Lavender
Spring Creek Lavender is a multi-generational family farm in Upstate New York. We specialize in lavender and cut flowers. Our lavender is in bloom from late June through July. During the rest of the summer we have cut flowers along with our animals to meet. One of our purposes with the farm is to help people find rest and restoration in their story. We look forward to sharing the farm with you and providing a relaxing experience to engage with your spouse.
Who We Are
We are a multi-generational family run farm. Three generations live and work on the farm. Kevin and Kara Keeley and their three kids. Kara wears many hats with a focus on flower production and design, product curation and making, and butterfly raising. Kevin handles the marketing, event planning, and many facets of animal care. He has a particular passion for leadership and story having earned his PhD in Leadership Studies. Tom Willis (Kara's dad) keeps very busy making sure the farm looks amazing and is welcoming to visitors, taking care of the animals, is our resident builder and fixer of all things, and is in charge of lavender production and distilling. Jane Willis can often be found providing education in the butterfly exhibit and working to insure that the farm looks beautiful for people to come visit. The Keeley kids can be seen giving tours, taking care of animals, directing cars, and taking care of the property. We can't wait to host your for the weekend and share our farm, animals, and property with you!
We have over 2,000 lavender plants on the farm and many varieties of cut flowers. While our lavender harvest will be finished by the Marriage Weekend, we will have many other flowers in bloom to enjoy. Spend time walking the grounds, finding a chair to relax in, a yard game to play, or a trail to meander through.
Our animals are a big part of our farm and our family. When visiting you can meet our three horses, three miniature donkeys, three alpacas, flock of chickens, or watch our ducks swim on the pond. You will also have the opportunity to spend time in our goat pen and butterfly house!
We love spending time with our animals and hope they provide a retreat for you and put smiles on your faces!
