As many of our loyal customers may know, our dear and beloved Leslie Heard passed away in February 2022.
While we miss her dearly, we wanted to take some time to update our customers about future plans for Rockin' H Lavender Farms.
Those of you who have visited us and knew Leslie, have also come to love her so we want to be sure to honor her in the best way possible here at Rockin' H Lavender Farm by continuing to do what she loved--serving and welcoming others.
A welcoming hostess, Leslie was gracious and generous to her many friends and acquaintances, always putting their needs and comfort ahead of her own. She was a fabulous cook and shared her tasty breads and other culinary delights with our guests each week. This included the wonderful evening cookies for our guests and delicious sausage bread in the mornings.
Everywhere you look at this farm has a touch of Leslie and we would be remiss to not continue to serve our guests with the highest level of love, care, attention to detail, and open arms.
We want to thank everyone who have reached out and supported us along the way and we love all of you for your continuous support. We hope to see everyone soon and to continue welcoming them to the "casitas that Leslie built."
How We Got Started:
Living in and owning a business in Nacogdoches, Ricky and Leslie Heard wanted a weekend getaway retreat. After much looking, Ricky and Leslie purchased approximately 280 acres complete with fantastic views in Santa Anna, Texas. They truly enjoy the central Texas landscape and weather, along with the fact that mosquitoes are infrequent guests!
In the spring of 2014, they planted their first lavender plants. Through trial and error, they finally figured out the best location for growing lavender on their property. In June of 2018, the Heards’ sold their property and casualty business located in Nacogdoches. The thought was to “retool,” not “retire!” A lavender farm and casitas seemed like the perfect fit. It was full steam ahead!
