The Beautiful Lavender Farm Hiding In Plain Sight In Nebraska That You Need To Visit
Lavender is known as a fussy plant that’s difficult to grow outside of the perfect climate. Nebraska, of course, has anything but the “perfect” climate. But there are a couple of wonderful lavender farms making it work after a process of trial and error. Peace, Love and Lavender, just outside of Elwood, has been growing lavender since 2013, and the owners have turned their hobby into a lucrative full-time business.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
The farm is open to the public on weekends in the summer months through Labor Day, with several special events taking place in that time. It isn’t a super well-known attraction yet, so visiting is a peaceful, leisurely experience. Get more information and follow along with special events on their Facebook page.
