A stop in the orchard will provide an opportunity to meet Bob and Shirley, the farm’s peacock pair, and a unique collection of egg laying hens.

Should one wish to take home some lavender goodies, the farm’s gift shop is stocked full with Purple Haze‘s own line of culinary delights, bath and body products and lavender home care items. The farm also has its own ice cream shoppe with a variety of delicious lavender ice cream, tea, coffee, and lavender lemonade. Those looking for a more permanent souvenir will have over a dozen varieties of lavender plants to choose from to take home and plant in their own garden.
