Graystem Farm is a small, veteran owned flower farm located in beautiful Powhatan County Virginia, a stone’s throw from the Appomattox River. We’re a short but scenic drive from Short Pump, Goochland, Amelia, Louisa, Blackstone, Chester, Montpelier, Midlothian, Richmond, Farmville, Crewe, or Charlottesville.

Schedule a visit to the farm and take home a beautiful, hand-picked bouquet of flowers straight from the field. We grow all of your cottage garden favorites and our sunflowers are waiting for you to take those perfect ‘grams!

Our farm also features a shop stocked with lavender products and ready-to-go bouquets gathered fresh and arranged for you each day.

Our Mission… 

is to offer a relaxing, eco-friendly flower farm experience for visitors to enjoy away from the hustle and bustle.

Our Goal

is that visitors to our farm gain an appreciation for small farm production and the benefits of lavender and fresh flowers.  We love loyal customers who value a healthy relaxed lifestyle that embraces locally and seasonally grown flowers, and the use of Graystem Farm lavender products!

We also believe in sharing.  We have learned a great deal by trial and error and we’re happy to share that hard-earned knowledge through our YouTube channel, farm blog, and on-the-farm workshops.

Take a moment to breathe and enjoy this very short slo-mo video of bees working our lavender. See if you can spot two of our farm crew members towards the end!

Our farm is a work in progress, continually evolving and always improving. We look forward to sharing its beauty and bounty with you.


The flower field is open for you-pick only on designated days or by appointment. Visit the store to make an appointment for individuals, families, or groups. Check our Events page or sign up for our e-newsletter to be notified when we offer workshops, field days, and special offers.


Your first stop on the farm is our little shop where you pick up your bouquet cup or bucket. The shop is also stocked with a variety of floral offerings, from lavender lotions to floral edibles. Farm closed for the season? No problem, visit our online shop!


We offer several ways to get your flower fix – visit the farm and pick your own, purchase ready-to-go bouquets or fill your home with flowers every week with a bouquet subscription!


At Graystem Farm we grow several different varieties of lavender. Some are best suited to culinary use while others make sublime essential oils. We steam distill our own flowers to hand craft fresh local lavender products.

Graystem Farm is a proud member of the Powhatan Chamber of Commerce



Trudy began gardening at the tender age of six when she sprouted her first green bean in a cut down milk carton on the school room windowsill.  That first foray into nurturing green life was followed by many years of happily mucking about in the dirt. 

When Trudy isn’t out working in the fields, she is crafting with flowers, distilling essential oils from our lavender or experimenting with it in the kitchen.

She also holds an Advanced Certificate in Culinary Arts and Pastry from the University of Richmond, School of Continuing Education. Trudy is also a novice photographer and enjoys sewing machine embroidery.
