Over 5500 visitors enjoyed the 2018 Prince Edward County Lavender Festival – join them in 2019!
Great fun for all ages. Enjoy live music, kids’ activities, face painting, petting zoo, pony rides, fun entertainment, delicious food and tour the beautiful lavender fields! You’ll learn about the process of essential oil making, sample delicacies in the Tasting Tent, shop in the boutique and more.
On our farm you will find many cultivars of lavender, offering a myriad of colours, scents and tastes. Some of our cultivars are praised for their exceptional essential oil qualities, while others are best kept for culinary creations or crafts.
But lavender is not all we do … there is a wide range of other herbs to purchase either in potted form, or processed and packaged in our store - either individually or in special blends, such as Herbes de Provence, Hillier Herbs, Fines Herbs and Holiday Herbs. Shop the boutique, tour the fields of lavender and other herbs, the knot garden and flower beds.
Lavender is a plant rich in history and myth. With its roots in the ancient art of the herbalists, lavender has been cultivated for many purposes.
We have beehives located in the lavender fields. Watch the bees feasting on the lavender nectar until they fly back to the hive to begin the process of honey making, providing us with an incredibly delicate honey, light in colour and subtle on the palate. Add the unique taste of lavender to your appetizers, main dishes, desserts and cocktails. Let your creativity be your guide! A pinch of lavender will add a subtle flavour to almost any recipe.
Lavender is a plant of choice for the garden. It offers a spectacular show of colours with a divine sweet smell. Since lavender is drought resistant, it will thrive in the hot and sunny side of the property and you will not have to water every day. Better yet, place the lavender plants along a path or under a window to enjoy the comforting fragrance. Another good use of lavender is at the edge of an existing garden. The strong fragrance will keep deer away, preventing them from grazing on your vegetable garden or your other flowers.
Lavender is used extensively in herbal therapy and aromatherapy. Knowledge of its healing qualities has grown through the centuries. It is known for its disinfectant and antiseptic properties. Today, lavender is more widely used in the natural remedy category for a range of ailments, from insomnia and anxiety to depression and mood disturbances. Research has confirmed that lavender produces slight calming, soothing, and sedative effects when its scent is inhaled. Through inhalation and infusions of lavender, aromatherapists treat exhaustion and nervous disorders. For ailments, herbalists use lavender to treat skin infections, burns, wounds, eczema and acne. At Prince Edward County Lavender we produce this 100% pure Lavandula Angustifolia essential oil made exclusively from plants grown on our farm.
Lavender was brought to North America by the first settlers and planted in their kitchen and herb gardens; it has been a staple since. In the United States and Canada, the Shakers (a strict sect of English Quakers) were the first to grow lavender commercially as they developed herb farms upon their arrival from England. The resurgence of aromatherapy and naturopathic medicine has once again given lavender a prominent place in our daily lives.
