Spring is in the air and Summer is quickly approaching. Lavender by the Bay is open for the season and ready to welcome visitors!
Since 2011, we have been hard at work expanding our fields, preparing potted plants for your garden and creating new sachets for our shop. We now have 15 acres planted with lavender. Both our mature and baby plants are growing strong; this season should be a spectacular one!
Lavender by the Bay is not only a picturesque place to visit, we are also a working farm. We harvest the lavender for drying while in their bloom. You will see bunches hanging in our shop drying. Also, our bees and bee hives need tending so you can enjoy our delicious honey.
If you are planning to visit during the peak bloom, our English lavender usually blooms mid-to-late June, followed by our lavandins (French lavender) peaking in early July.
Due to the milder weather this season, blooms could arrive two weeks earlier. Keep an eye on the website for updates so you can plan your visit accordingly.
If you are visiting on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday or a major holiday during the bloom time, please keep in mind that time spent in the field is limited to 20 minutes due to a limited number of parking spots available. Visits to the farm during the week can be more leisurely. You will have more time to stroll around the designated areas, visit our shop, take advantage of u-pick bunches and perhaps enjoy your picnic lunch while viewing the beautiful purple haze and savoring the aromatic delights of our lavender.
If you are a professional photographer interested in using our farm please email us for rates and more information.
We look forward to seeing you this season.

Due to the damage from the recent hurricane our second bloom has been cut short. While we still have some fresh lavender available, the field is not as spectacular as we were hoping. Our hearts and prayers go out to those who were negatively impacted by the hurricane. We wish all a quick recovery.

Wow what a weekend, the fields were buzzing with activity. We are in the process of harvesting the French lavender this week and hanging it up to dry. For those of you traveling from afar please be aware that the fields will have a limited view of lavender.

Spring showers mean lavender flowers!
We have been busy busy at the farm preparing for the exciting 2011 season. 16,000 new lavender plants are being added to our fields. The harsh winter has been tough on our bees but a new supply of bees from Georgia have started to feel at home and are already hard at work. If they keep up the good work we hope to have spring honey by mid June and lavender honey by the end of July.
We will be reopening Saturday, April 30th and open weekends only during the month of May from 9AM -5PM. Starting in June we will be open 7 days a week through the end of September. We have a large supply of lavender plants for sale both indoor and outdoor.
We expect our English lavender to be in bloom mid to late June. Our lavandins usually begin blooming the beginning of July.
See you all soon!
