Let's visit an amazing lavender farm!

Pin It Now!


My friend Lia recently visited Mt. Shasta Lavender Farm in Northern California and she has allowed me to share her photos with you! 

Isn't that view amazing! That's Mt. Shasta in the background.



From Lia:
The farm is about 15-20 minutes outside of the town of Weed. If you are heading towards Oregon it should be on your list of stops!
The views are incredible but the smell will take your breath away!

When I went it was about 96 degrees with a slight breeze. I opened the door to the car and was embraced in the intoxicating smell of lavender. I walked into the Tuscan-style building and was greeted with a refreshing (and cold) glass of lavender lemonade…lavender stem included!. The boutique offers a wide array of lavender-infused items from paintings and tiles to sachets and soaps. You are invited by the very friendly and informative staff to cut lavender ($4.00 for 100 stems) or just wander through the fields and the labyrinth. They provide baskets and scissors as well as parasols to keep you out of the direct sun! Fabulous!
Thank you Lia for allowing me to share this on my blog! I can almost smell the lavender!

I absolutely LOVE the smell of lavender! It is so calming. Whenever I've had the opportunity to visit Carmel, I love how one of my favorite restaurants named Casanova's sells lavender out front. They have bushels of lavender and the smell is awesome. Thanks for bringing that to mind for me. I would love to visit a lavender farm; love the photos.

Blessings,
Debbie

That photo of Mt. Shasta in the background is a jaw-dropper. I've been to the WA state Lavender Festival in Sequim which is on the northern-most tip of the Olympic Peninsula and it was amazing. There were many lavender farms on the 'tour' & some of them offered quick classes on making lavender sachets, wands, etc. I made a lavender wreath and still have it hanging in my office. The aroma never goes away!

Hi Cindy,
We drove past it last year on our way to Seattle. It was not open when we drove by... How beautiful and I'm sure your senses were full of sweet lavender...
Have a sweet day, Hugs~Elizabeth

I would love to wake up to that view daily - even in a storm.
We are using more lavender scent around the house right now. I can only hope it is stress reducing.

Gayle said...

Oh my goodness. You couldn't help but be healthier after that tour and inhaling all that goodness. Just beautiful and what a photo with the mountain in the background!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I could look at that view all day. I would love to smell the lavender, too.

Funny I just recently posted about the Cape Cod Lavender Farm. Wow, what a difference between the East and West Coast.

I love the smell of lavender and at night I always scent my bedding with it.

Even in the fall, when I'm cleaning up my garden, the lavender smells in the pile of leaves I'm raking!
I've been to Provence in lavender season and it, too, is overwhelming...
