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!
First of all, after you park and approach their little farm store, it is darling! Look at this place! Even the trim is a beautiful shade of purple. The brick patio gives it a courtyard/cafe feel. The store/cottage offers a variety of products from satchels, masks (bought one), lotions, candles, essential oils, honey, shampoos, household cleaning products, soaps, herbs and cooking spices-I bought Lavender Salt and Pepper! 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!
