Olympic Lavender Company has been a Certified Organic farm since 2001 after 3 years of working through the requirements.  We are certified each year by the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) through its certifying agent the WSDA (Washington State Department of Agriculture).

We are Certified Organic in two specific designations for our farm and retail.The first certification is as a Certified Organic Crop Producer of our plants and herbs which are more than just lavender.  The second certification is as a Certified Organic Processor of those crops and herbs and through our distillation for select products such as our essential oils and hydrosols for example.



“Organic certification requires that farmers and handlers document their processes and get inspected every year. Organic on-site inspections account for every component of the operation, including, but not limited to, seed sources, soil conditions, crop health, weed and pest management, water systems, inputs, contamination and commingling risks and prevention, and record-keeping. Tracing organic products from start to finish is part of the USDA organic promise.
The National Organic Programensures the integrity of the organic label by regulating all products certified to United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) organic standards. In order to sell, label, or represent their products as organic, operations must follow all of the specifications set out by the USDA organic regulations.”

“The WSDA Organic Program, a USDA-accredited certifier, upholds the integrity of the organic label through certification and inspection of organic operations. Through producer certification services, WSDA certifies operators who grow, raise, or produce an agricultural product.”

A Processor certificate “is required for processing or packaging agricultural products. Processing includes cooking, baking, curing, heating, canning, drying, mixing, grinding, churning, separating, extracting, slaughtering, cutting, fermenting, distilling, preserving, dehydrating, and freezing. Any of these value-added activities fit into the handling category of organic certification. Processing also includes the repackaging of foods from bulk bins into smaller containers labeled for retail sale.”

We are located in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley on the majestic North Olympic Peninsula in the state of Washington. Just minutes from the world famous UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Olympic National Park and mountains and just seconds from the waterfront of the Dungeness Bay National Wildlife Refuge and the Strait of Juan de Fuca, we call this great part of our country home.
