The Beautiful Lavender Farm Hiding In Plain Sight In Colorado That You Need To Visit
Do you want to know what I love most about Colorado? It is the fact that that we get to bask in all four seasons and all of the home-grown goodness that comes with it (which doesn’t happen everywhere)! In the summer, we brought you a list of places to pick your own fruit and in the fall, places to pick your own pumpkins…so what else is there for us to look forward to in the coming seasons? Picking your own fragrant lavender at this Colorado farm, of course!
Located in picture-perfect Palisade (yes, the same Palisade that turns out those heavenly peaches!), Sage Creations Organic Farm is a small family-owned farm that turns out three different species of lavender on 3-acres of their farm. As per their website, “Growing lavender was inspired from the love of growing herbs. Lavender is one of the most versatile and well known herbs that can be dated back to roman times. It is an herb that is both seductive and useful in many forms.” Whether you pick your own bundle (for $6, which includes both your basket and scissors), purchase via their on-site shop or farm stand, or attend one of their many classes, you are sure to find the highest quality of lavender at this must-visit gem on the Western Slope!
Sage Farms is located at 3555 E. Rd. in Palisade and is open to the public April through September, with their U-Pick Lavender fields beginning in mid-June. For more information on this family farm and their various offerings, please visit their website.
