Lavender Madness Returns
Get back to nature on Mad Lavender Farm as it opens in May for its sixth year of goat yoga, hands-on workshops, and “pick your own” lavender.
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.
In addition to workshops in crafting lavender wands and wreaths, the farm offers workshops in herbology, self care and a new workshop on oil distillation that teaches participants how to distill oils and hydrosols from favorite herbs.
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. The farm is open May through October. For information, visit MadLavenderFarm.com. See ad, page 10.
