To my pleasant surprise I learned the farm was featured in the March 2008 Martha Stewart Living and other publications.
I spent about an hour taking pictures, soaking in the lavender scent, watching bees and just taking one step at a time, enjoying the weather and absorbing bountiful sights in front of me.
On the premises is a gift shop full of wonderful indulgences, from fresh lavender cookies, calming soaps, towels, lavender honey, culinary lavender and more eyes pleasing items. I love little shops like these, I never want to leave. Today I bought a bag of culinary organic lavender, it is the one of English variety, which is suppose to have the best culinary properties. I hope to make some cookies or a pie, perhaps bread using it.
Several weeks ago I visited another local Valley Peace Lavender Farm, though a lot smaller than Carousel Lavender Farm, it posses a very rustic and quaint feel. Both are magical and nothing short of amazing and I will be visiting them soon again.
Have a wonderful week.
