Lavender Fields in Kansas

March 04, 2021

Where can I go to pick lavender in Kansas?

Luckily for us, Kansas has several breathtaking lavender fields to choose from, and some of them will even allow you to pick your own (season permitting). For example, The Lavender Patch Farm in Fort Scott, Kansas, holds a U-Pick event every year, as do other local lavender farms like Prairie Lavender Farm in Bennington, and Gertie’s Lavender Farm in Burrton. You’ll definitely want to make a list of all the farms you plan on visiting and check them off as you go. It’ll be like the best-smelling scavenger hunt you’ve ever been on, except you’re hunting tiny purple flowers.

What are some farms to visit in Kansas?

Kansas has dozens of farms that are open to having visitors, some by appointment only and others on a first-come, first-serve walk-up basis. Some of our favorites include gems like Ad Astra Alpacas, in beautiful Baldwin City, which is seriously as amazing as it sounds. Alpacas everywhere! Another great one is Hedrick’s Exotic Animal farm, in Nickerson, which might be the only place in all of Kansas where you can hang out with – and feed – kangaroos, as well as other fascinating critters you definitely don’t see every day.

What are some things to do in spring in Kansas?

Believe it or not, Kansas can be a pretty happening place in spring! We’re surrounded by tons of natural beauty, so take your pick from any number of epic hiking trails, beautiful lakes, wide-open plains, or whatever else makes your heart sing. We’re also all about that fishing and hunting life, too, which comes in handy if you’re an avid camper who happens to be hungry. The possibilities are endless!
