One of the perks of living in Bucks County, is that you can have the best of both worlds. City and country living. If you want to run to the city for some cosmopolitan flair you have Philadelphia only 40 minutes away, but if you want something different, charming, and fun to do, just drive in the other direction toward New Hope, and you find yourself amidst tons of lavender fields. No joke. This past Saturday I finally went to visit the Carousal Farm Lavender, a place I'd passed alot and wanted to visit, and finally did! They are only open on Saturday for the tours.
There are animals everywhere on the farm to see also, so you might be lucky to see the goats, llamas, horses and more…. I loved the herd of donkeys myself.
An antique wagon at the entrance is loaded with handmade and locally made bath, beauty, home and food products using the organic lavender right from the farm. You can shop from the cart and even pick up a bunch of fresh lavender to take home with you. Pretty cool. You doesn't like lavender under a pillow to sleep by?
It was a beautiful day to go see the farm, and if your in the area be sure to check out this excellent stop while in Bucks County.
