The Lavender Fields

I found out about this place last year, but was unable to make it to their open days over the summer. Maybe we will make it sometime in November. The have just announced their U-Pick dates for the Fall.

They are located in eastern San Diego County, off of I-15. You can get a map and directions from their web site.

October 5-6

November 2-3

November 16-17

November 23-24

December 14-15

11 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Head on out and have some fun. There are great Christmas shopping ideas in their General Store for those on your list who 'have everything'.

From their web site...

Welcome to The Lavender Fields, an organic lavender farm in the foothills of the Palomar mountains in northern San Diego county California, where we grow Lavandula x intermedia 'Provence', commonly referred to as 'French Lavender', known for its powerful, sweet fragrance and abundant display.

Our Mediterranean climate provides just the right environment for our fields. Every evening the Pacific Ocean marine layer moves slowly inland, blanketing our fields with a protective dew. The evening air comes alive with natural perfume. At daybreak the fog begins to move out, opening the fields up to another day of nurturing sunshine.
