Opening day will be on Saturday, May 14th, after which the farm will be open their regular hours of 10 am to 4 pm, Tuesdays through Saturdays. If you’ve never been to the farm, owners Kieran and Elizabeth O’Connor will be happy to welcome you to their little slice of heaven.

Willowfield in Bloom

The 28 acre property is an organic lavender farm with approximately 2,000 beautiful plants in a four-acre field, surrounded by woods. The O’Connors have been growing lavender here since October, 2001 when they planted their first 100 plants. The property also serves as a gorgeous wedding venue with several ceremony sites. The gift shop on site features wonderful gift items such as soaps, lotions, sachets, and more, all made with the farm’s locally-grown, incredible-smelling lavender. The farm is usually in full bloom during the summer, from mid-June to mid-July.

Willowfield Soap

It’s an amazing place to visit any time, but be sure to mark your calendars for Willowfield Lavender Farm’s 2016 Summer Concert Series as well – each event features an evening of fabulous music in a relaxed atmosphere amidst the lavender. Bring a picnic, lawn chairs or blankets and find a spot in the field for an enjoyable, family-friendly evening. (Pro-tip: Don’t forget the bug spray!) Each evening concert will feature the farm’s signature lavender iced teas and desserts made with lavender as well! Select evenings will also offer wine tasting and sales from Mallow Run Winery. The “doors” open at 4 pm and the music begins at 6 pm. Admission is only $5 per person and children under age 12 are free.
