Chris and John Adams purchased the old Christmas tree farm on Eatonville Cutoff Road in 2002 to begin developing Stringtown Farms as a vineyard for the planned winery, Stringtown Cellars.

Based on experiments at the home vineyards, John began his vineyard planting with red grapes including Agria, Saparavi and Leon Millot, and white grapes including Ortega. He continues to experiment, adding new plantings and seeking the best grapes to grow in the Puget Sound Appellation.

     Lavender planting began in 2003 with 250 Grosso (hybrid) lavender plants purchased from a friend with plants at a Sequim farm.

In the next few years, other varieties were added to the new lavender plot, including the hybrids Giant Hidcote, Seal, Edelweiss, Impress Purple, and Provence, and English lavenders called Purple Bouquet, Ana Luisa, Forever Blue, and Imperial Gem.
