FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is the Walk Through the Lavender Fields?

Visitors of all ages are invited to stroll through the winding paths of organic lavender fields, participate in guided tours in an antique tractor-drawn wagon, learn how lavender essential oil is extracted and taste lavender-inspired dishes. The organic herbs grown at 123 Farm are featured prominently throughout the family-friendly event through various refreshing lavender-inspired favorites such as lavender lemonade and lavender ice cream. The organic flower market showcases specialty items many of them made with lavender as, for example, honey, balsamic vinegar, essential oils, fresh bouquets, plants and even lavender-stuffed toys. We highly recommend purchasing your tickets online to skip the line and to avoid higher prices at the door.
