As we say good-bye to June, I want to send a big SHOUT OUT to the lavender farms in Kansas! Let’s take a tour of a lavender farm together! One last look before the season ends…
Whether your goal is to create your own craft project or just take in the massive scent and muted hue of lavender, if you want to relax and have a good time, a visit to Lavender Farm is what the doctor ordered.
Prairie Lavender Farm is in Bennington, KS. Though they are a small farm, they are dedicated to growing and developing the highest quality lavender and lavender products from the High Plains Prairie. They offer over 80 bath and beauty products, culinary items along with their wonderful lavender. They have over 4,000 plants of 9 different varieties! They welcome visitors, but request that you call first.
There’s another nice lavender farm close to Topeka, KS. Ingwerson Lavender Farm was once a traditional farm with cattle and hay, but Jim and Mary gave up a couple of acres and began growing lavender.
Washington Creek Lavender is in Lawrence, KS. They have a great website with handmade products at reasonable prices. I like the lavender pottery they make!
Do you know someone who is hyperactive and has a difficult time shutting down at night? Why is everyone saying MY name? No, no… I mean someone in your family or a friend – LOL!!! Wouldn’t it be nice to get them an eye pillow infused with lavender scent? Lavender has a calming quality and may help them drift off into dreamland.
You know I love baskets, but a basket with lavender inside is especially gorgeous! I happened to find a photo that spoke to me. I asked Lucinda Berry Hill if she would write a poem for the photo and she graciously agreed to do so. It’s so purty… I knew it would be!
God’s gifts are all fantastic… that’s true. One of the best gifts He gave Kansas was its lavender farms! 🙂
