Lavender Hollow Farms
Ages: 8 and up
Lavender Hollow Farm is a treat for the senses! Step onto the farm and take a deep breath; the lavender scent permeates and thoughts turn to expansive fields in the south of France...
The farm has been an operating lavender farm since 2005, and is family owned and operated. The Taylor family cares for and harvests all the lavender and produces small-batch, hand-made products; the items are available for sale, including soaps, lotions, massage oils, essential oils, candles, relaxation pillows, eye pillows, shower gels, and linen sprays. Lavender infused food and drink is also available, though varies with the season. Visitors during the high heat of summer are sure try the refreshing lavender lemonade, while during the fall and winter events, lavender spiced cider and lavender butter cookies are big hits.
On Fridays and Saturdays, boxed lunches may be enjoyed at the farm, but only if ordered 24 in advance. On Sundays, a brunch is offered from 11am to 2pm, for which no reservations are needed unless visitors are part of a group of 10 or larger.
The farm's main seasons are spring and summer, when the 45 varieties of lavender and other flowers are bursting with bloom; however, there is typically an annual fall plant sale and craft weekend in October and a Holiday Boutique open for a week in December.
All ages are welcome to visit the farm, though this may be an outing that older children can appreciate more than younger. Blossoming gardeners and children who are quick to proffer a bouquet of dandelions might most enjoy wandering through the gardens at Lavender Hollow farms.
