The Beautiful Lavender Farm Hiding In Plain Sight In New York That You Need To Visit
When it comes to spending time outside in the Finger Lakes where you find yourself in wide open spaces with views of the water, our mind often wanders to locations like our wonderful wineries. But what if I told you that there was a charming little farm overlooking Skaneateles Lake that’s guaranteed to give a relaxing day out in the sun? Sounds enticing doesn’t it? Hiding right in plain sight along the western side of the lake, you need to visit Lockwood Lavender Farm.
Established in 1854, this breathtaking lavender farm has been in the Lockwood family for five generations.
Home to the annual Finger Lakes Lavender Festival, Lockwood Lavender Farm is an incredible place to spend a day outside.
Covering 120 acres, the farm does a spectacular job of preserving the agricultural heritage of the Finger Lakes.
Planting lavender for nearly 15 years, the farm harvests over 2,000 plants of 20 different varieties.
On the farm you'll be able to find the Drying Barn, where if you step inside you'll be able to shop around for different lavender products.
There are so many amazing things that can be made with lavender and you can find a variety of them inside of Lockwood's Drying Barn. From lavender bath salts and soaps to candles and even
, this is the perfect place to stop during the summer if you're looking to get someone a unique gift they're sure to love.

Another nice surprise you'll find on the farm? A precious flock of sheep and plenty of baby lambs!
Every year the farm welcomes new baby lambs into their flock of sheep, just one of the many things that we love about this farm!
All across the farm you can find Adirondack chairs and benches where you'll be able to enjoy the amazing smell of lavender and view of Skaneateles Lake.
After spending the day picking your own bouquet of lavender, you can sit back and relax at this unique destination!
Open again for the year in June, you won't want to let another year pass you by without taking a visit to Lockwood Lavender Farm!
