Silver Fox Lavender Farm

Hello!
Did you all have a good weekend?
We sure did.
We went to a local Lavender Farm and had ourselves a beautiful relaxing day.


 

Have you ever been to a lavender farm before?
The smell when you arrive is oh so heavenly.




This farm is own by a family here who host the lavender festival.  Their property is so lovely every where you look.
My boy's enjoyed swinging on some swings next to a creek full of ducks.

 

 

 


In the past years that I have gone to a lavender festival, I always cut me a big bouquet of lavender to take home.  But since I now have my own lavender bush at home I decided not to.

 This grapevine trellis was really neat to walk under.


 

 The Farmhouse on the property was built 101 years ago.  It is a sears home ordered from a Sears and Roebuck catalog and shipped and built on site.  Isn't it charming?
This is actually the back of the home.

  

This Silo was built for 3 farmers as a co-op to store their grain, today it is used to dry lavender bouquets.


 


The Silo has a beautiful rose garden next to it.

 

The festival had a few fun vendors, Lavender doughnuts, tea, lemonade and ice cream, You could enjoy lunch under the orchard trees, make lavender wreaths, listen to live music, or just relax in a lavender lawn chair in the shade.


 

 

Exploring the farm we also found chickens, sheep and old cars.







I thoroughly enjoyed myself, and can't wait to go again next year.

Thanks for stopping by,
Emily
