In the summer of last year, we visited a field of sunflowers and I shared the whole experience in this post and in the autumn we visited a pumpkin farm (check out the details here).
This year, we chose to meet a lavender farm and decided to go to Terre Bleu, which is super known here and is located in the city of Milton, about 2hrs by car from Toronto. We paid CAD $15.00 (+ tax) on the ticket and to save time we bought it by the website.
The Terre Bleu has plantations of English and French lavanders (both purple and white) divided into two very large fields. I must confess to you that I imagined that a lavender plantation would have a strong scent, but to my surprise there is no smell.
The location is enormous and besides the planting of lavanders, you can also see a bee-eater, a distillery that produces lavender oil, a small garden with several spices and also some horses.
There is also a shop with lavender products in the composition, such as various creams, oléos, exfoliants, candles and even cheeses, ice cream and lemonade. Check out the products. We enjoyed to taste the lavender ice cream, but I confess that I didn’t like it very much, because my brain can’t accept the lavender as food, so it seemed like I was licking one of my body creams LoL.
For those who like to do yoga, during the weekends of June/July/August they sell tickets to take yoga classes in the middle of the lavender fields. Learn more here.
During our visit they also announced that they will have fields of sunflowers and chamomile for visitation this year, so keep an eye on their Facebook page to find out the dates.
I hope you enjoyed this tour and in case you haven’t visited a flower plantation, I would highly recommend researching in your region, for sure you must have some.
