I recently had heard that there was a lavender farm in the area, and had been trying to find the time to make it there before the end of the picking season. While you can visit into the end of summer, picking may not be available, so check before going.
I used Google Maps to get there, and we found it without a problem.
The farm is located out in the country, and I enjoyed the drive through rolling farmland. There is a small sign by the road that pointed to the farm.
When we arrived, we were very warmly welcomed by one of the owners, David, who helped us get set up with instructions for cutting lavender for bouquets and answered all of our questions. Bouquets are $5 or $15 (depending if the stems fit in the small part of the scissors or the large).
I was excited to check out the fields and get to work making a bundle of lavender.
There are lots of kinds of lavender, including French Lavender, English Lavender, and culinary lavender, as well as a variety of colors (white, pink, and different shades of purple).
It was nice to see lots of pollinators there, and you can visit the beehives right on the property as well. Just be aware that there are lots of bees there, moving around on the lavender flowers.
You can also purchase bouquets that are already picked, if you prefer.
Once we were done exploring and cutting our lavender, we went to check out the shop. There are lots of great items for purchase, and Diane (David’s wife) gave us lots of great tips on using culinary lavender.
We tried some samples of lavender lemonade and bought some goodies before heading out.
We had a wonderful time at Lavenlair, and needless to say, the car smelled quite lovely on the way home!

Such lovely photos! I would be so happy to visit Lavenlair. Lavender is one of my favorite scents!
I love lavender, and this place looks super awesome! I would love to visit. My daughters and I grew lavender this spring, and they always enjoyed going to the garden and picking and smelling it.
Oh how fun. I love the smell of Lavender. I didnt realize there were so many different kinds.
So beautiful. What a fun outing. I would love to visit there!
Oh this is really neat. I like that you can go out and cut your own lavender. Learning to use lavender in some creative ways would be fun too.
I have to admit I love Lavender, so it would be right up my street to just go and be able to pick some bundles for myself. They would look lovely hung around the home.
How gorgeous! I just love lavender and hope I can go to a lavender farm one day.
Many thanks Marysa for coming to Lavenlair. We are glad you had a good time and enjoyed our farm. We look forward to our Open House in December – thr only time we open up our 199 year old home to visitors. Hope to see you for the first weekend of December! All our best,
Dave & Diane
Lavender plants are beautiful and I had no idea that there were so many different varieties. I haven’t ever had the opportunity to smell lavender from a fresh flower. But I’m not a huge fan of lavender-scented products, even though it has calming properties.
I would love to visit a lavender farm. The scent of lavender is one of my faves ever. I would have a field day here lol!
I LOVE lavender! I never thought of going to a lavender field, this looks SO fun!

I bet these lavender fields smell amazing. They really do brighten the room.
I had no idea that there was such a thing as a lavender farm. This looks like a really cool place for me to visit as a road trip idea from NH. Lavender is one of my favorite scents, and it can be used in so many ways.
Those are some really beautiful photos. I really love lavender as well. Lots of great uses for it too.
OMG there truly is a lavender farm in New York! Thanks for sharing the exact location. Hoping I can make it there this summer. I love the smell of lavender!
This farm is tickling the exciteness in me. Who would not love to visit this right? It must feel like a paradise there
Lavender is my absolute favorite smell in the whole wide world. My husband says it smells like soap. LOL I could spend the whole day there.
This is a fun trip, and I’d love to do this. I’d like to make a smallish lavender wreath. I don’t know of any lavender farms anywhere near us. Lucky you!
What a fantastic visit to the Lavenlair Lavendar Farm, I loved their cute little gift shop with all the different lavendar themed things inside it
This place looks heavenly. I can almost smell the lavender from the pictures.
We dont have lavender in where I stay due to the climate here, we can’t grow lavender. However, I was lucky enough to visite one of the lavender farm in China years ago. It was just breathtaking.
Oh my goodness I just want to climb into your pictures and never leave! Thank you so much for sharing such a gorgeous place with all of us!
I can’t get enough of the scent of Lavender. It’s so calming when I’m having a stressful day. I’m going to have to see how far this is away from my home.
I really want to visit a lavender farm but sadly there are none near us – it looks stunning
I’ve always wanted to visit a lavender farm and take photos. My cousin owns one in Washington.
This is so cool! I’d love to visit a lavender field. I bet it smells so good surrounded by all that lavender.
Gosh, I have been obsessed with lavender everything these days! This place is a dream come true – Sondra Barker @cuisineandtravel
I love lavender fields! So sad I missed ours this year here in califonia.
I recently went to a lavender farm, not so far from London and loved it! This one looks equally wonderful, and I’ll bookmark to visit the next time I come to the US.
I am addicted to the smell of lavender. Since I live not too far away from Whitehall, I would LOVE to visit and cut some at Lavenlair Lavender Farm!
Lavender farms are the loveliest. I just adore lavender and just planted a bush in my garden this year. It’s one of my favorites and has so many wonderful benefits too!
Oh, I’ve always wanted to go to a lavender farm. I grow some outside because they are so beautiful, and I love the smell.
I would love something lke this. I grow flowers mostly things for pollinators. I bet it smelled amazing there.
Where do you recommend to live for one person in NYC for this 7 days trip? Wonderful! Thanks for this useful guide and information.
