1. On Site Food Vendor - Grillin N Chillin
“Grillin N Chillin” is a striking, 16-foot, state-of-the-art, fully self-contained, custom-built food truck (trailer, actually). Operated by chef/owner David and his wife Kathryn, it contains a full gleaming stainless-steel commercial kitchen featuring a huge char-grill, a deep-fryer, a hot table, refrigerators, and much more.
Not only does Grillin N Chillin make brilliant, made-from scratch, fresh food, they also understand that nobody wants to spend their time at festival waiting in line for food, so they deliver it FAST… Flamin Good Food - Flamin Fast! ®
At the center of Grillin N Chillin’s Street Food menus are flavorful char-grilled meats, seafoods, and vegetables hot off a real open-flame grill. They offer a rotating variety of hot and cold sandwiches, rice bowls, and skewers accompanied by a host of delicious, made-from-scratch sides (like 4-Cheese Green Chile Mac N Cheese, GrillFire® Confetti Fresh Vegetables or their amazing Fresh Roasted-Corn Fritters). Vegetarians, vegans, low-cal, low-carb, and gluten-free seekers will always find menu options to enjoy, as will omnivores looking for traditional char-grilled beef, chicken and shrimp specialties. PLUS, you’ll always find a few signature sweets on hand (did we mention the David is a trained pastry chef). Look for their incredible Fresh Apple Fritters, Fruit Fry-Pies, and Fresh-Baked Giant Cookies!
2. Cheese Plate Available to Purchase in the Wine Tasting Room
Wine Tasting Room: Open during the festival for wine tastings, wine sales and to purchase cheese plates.
Pets: Pets are not allowed on the grounds of the Lavender Festival, except Service Dogs. We appreciate your cooperation. Please note: It is against Arizona State Law to leave any animal -- including pets -- in a vehicle REGARDLESS of the precautions taken (which includes: open windows, A/C, refrigeration, fans, etc.).
Non Smoking Policy: Smoking is prohibited on the farm and in the parking area due to the fire risk and as a courtesy to non-smokers.
Bees: Bees love lavender so you will see them on the lavender plants. They are generally harmless because the bees are so enthralled with the lavender that they rarely sting. The only reported sting in 12 years has been someone in open-toed shoes that stepped on a bee.
However, people with allergies to bees should be aware of this potential risk.
Picnic Area: We have some dining tables available (first come) or you can sit on the grass if you want to bring your lunch.
U-Cut: We provide the clippers for the U-Cut.
What to Wear: Comfortable closed-toed shoes, a hat for sun protection, bottled water.
