for it in your garden or a container. Visit our kitchen garden and learn how to feed a family fresh vegetables from a small space. Stroll the gardens featuring an edible landscape.
Check out the pollinators, like our honey bees and learn how to bring them back. Get some lavender-y honey, while it lasts.
Learn how easy it is to care for a small flock of hens for
fresh eggs in the Poultry Palace.
With our friends from The Farm Fairy, discover how easy it is to cook with lavender and other fresh herbs and vegetables.
Try something tasty with lavender. Sip Lavender Lemonade.

Watch artists paint waves of lavender and garden landscapes. Create a fresh lavender craft. In our barn, learn about the lavender process and stuff your own sachet and make a grill or outdoor fire bundle to take home. Fresh Lavender or Barn Crafts: $5 each
Find a spot on the farm to spread your quilt or set up your camp chair to enjoy fresh breakfast munchies, lunch or a snack from The Picnic Basket. For a treat, have a cone of Chocolate or Vanilla Lavender ice cream from Orange County's own Maple View Farm.
Beneath our Lavender Garden Shed & Porch, find lots of lavender seedlings. Shop for farm fresh hand made gifts for body, home, and weddings. Lots of lavender-y and farm fresh specialty food items like newly harvested honey and one-of-a-kinds too.
Most of all, come breathe in the lovely lavender and relax! Please bring your own shears for cutting, sunscreen, hat, comfortable clothing, and shoes. Picnic blankets, camp chairs, and stools for your comfort, and umbrellas for shade are welcome. No pets, please and carpooling is encouraged.
