Salem Oregon Horse Property: Try the Lavender Lemonade already!

Try the Lavender Lemonade already!

Lavender Lemonade

I was in Polk County last week showing horse property.  After I finished with my buyers, I decided to make the most of my drive home and stop in at the Lavender Lake Farms on HWY 99W just North of Monmouth Oregon.  I have been driving by their "Lavender Lemonade" sign for years!  I have always wanted to stop and try it (plus I love Lavender) but just never seem to have the time.  Finally, got the time!

And yes, I finally tried the Lavender Lemonade!  Delicious.

I understand that the 12 acre Lavender Lake Farm is family owned and

 operated, which helps keep that small town feel to the place.

I also got some great tips on growing my own lavender, I need all the help I can get when it comes to gardening.  I will be back!

Sometimes some of the nicest little places are right under our noses, and we just keep driving by.  Glad you took the time to stop!  Sounds like a wonderful place...

Catherine, I visited some lavender farms when I was visiting my brother near Seattle.  They were just beautiful, and the shops smelled wonderful.

Lisa- I am glad I finally stopped too!

Barb - I must admit I was a little nervous on how the lemonade would taste!

Dave - Yes, it is beautiful here, but we do pay for it in the winter.  Lots of rain to keep it green!

Patricia -Aren't they just a relaxing place to go?  I can't believe it took me so long to visit.
