A 30-acre farm that grows lavender, and offers a myriad of goods associated with the perennial purple plant, has announced that it will stay open beyond its normal summer season.
Typically known for its busy u-pick lavender season in spring and summer, Lavender Life Company, 464 Stanton Farms Dr., is now welcoming visitors to the farm to enjoy its amenities through December.
“Expanding our hours into fall and early winter gives visitors additional opportunities to visit and take in the respite setting of the property,” said Vickie Bennett. “We also have an abundance of lavender that is still blooming, and will likely continue to bloom well into November, where people can come and pick to make a fresh or dry lavender bouquet.”
The farm was started in 2018 when Vickie and Vic Bennett turned a 30-acre corn field into a calming oasis with six acres of sprawling lavender fields, waterfalls, ponds, as well as a bakery inside the 2,500-square-foot retail barn that overlooks the property.
In addition to a serene and tranquil setting, Lavender Life Company offers handcrafted lavender-based products at the farm and online, including gourmet foods and apothecary items. From lavender cheesecake and tea to a spiced molasses lavender vanilla bourbon cookie, the farm produces more than 150 gourmet food and apothecary products onsite, all made with culinary lavender and other organic and natural ingredients. Visitors to the farm can observe the production of lavender infused products Monday through Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
“Fall is a perfect time to unwind and spend a relaxing day at the farm with family and friends – whether it’s strolling the lavender fields, sipping a lavender latte or eating one of our many lavender-inspired homemade treats – all made with a hint of our culinary lavender,” said Vickie. “Our food production team is always creating lavender specialties in the open kitchen in the barn where visitors can sit and watch how our products are made.”
Hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 9 – 11 a.m. on Fridays; and 9 a.m. – noon on Saturdays in October (Oct. 7, Oct. 14, Oct. 21, and Oct. 28).
