Lavender Madness in May
Get back to nature on Mad Lavender Farm as it opens for its fifth year of goat yoga, hands-on workshops, and “pick your own” lavender. In addition to popular workshops on Foraging for Wild Herbs, Flower Essences and Zodiac Tea Blends, the farm is pleased to announce a new workshop on Oil Distillation that teaches participants how to distill oils and hydrosols from favorite herbs.
The lavender fields are in full, glorious bloom from mid-June through the first week of July. Pick Your Own Lavender is offered by reservation only, so book your appointment early through the website. The farm also hosts a private picnic area (by reservation only) that’s perfect for gathering with family and friends.
Visitors can also enjoy an array of lavender products such as soap, honey, candles, cookies, body and bath at the open-air Lavender Shop.
Location: 452 County Road 579, Milford. Shop hours: Friday-Sunday, 10am-2pm. For information, visit MadLavenderFarm.com. See ad, page 15.
