Rated by Country Living as "one of the top six stunning lavender farms to visit in America," Lavender by the Bay in East Marion is open for the season with curbside sales of lavender and lavender merchandise. But even better – you can now walk through “magical” fields of the fragrant flowers in bloom and enjoy a natural aromatic experience that is sure to soothe your spirits.
The 17-acre farm is home to over 80,000 lavender plants which are in peak bloom now. Visits to the fields require a ticket and due to COVID-19, only a limited amount of tickets are being sold. Each ticket is good for a specific time slot. Tickets are also available to visit Lavender by the Bay’s smaller farm located in Calverton.
While you can still visit either farm curbside to purchase locally-produced lavender products, the fields are open to ticket holders only. Visitors are asked to wear masks and practice social distancing. The farms close on rainy days. Visit Lavender by the Bay on Facebook or call to confirm operating hours in case of inclement weather.
Tickets can be purchased online at the Lavender by the Bay website. Tickets are $10-$12.
Lavender by the Bay is located in East Marion at at 7540 Main Road and in Calverton directly across the street from Splish Splash.
