The Beautiful Lavender Farm Hiding In Plain Sight Near Cleveland That You Need To Visit
Just south of Cleveland are hundreds of farms that speckle the Ohio landscape in shades of green and gold. However, just east of the city, we have one farm in particular that stands out as delightfully unique, and it is less than an hour’s drive from Cleveland.
Luvin Lavender is beautiful, enchanting, and a delightful escape from reality. Pretty purple plants reach over an acre, enchanting the eye, and you absolutely must pay the farm a visit.
Luvin Lavender is located at 5861 Middle Ridge Road in Madison, Ohio.
This small, quaint farm paints the landscape in picturesque shades of purple, pink, and white with over 3500 plants nestled across an acre and a half.
The property has served as a family farm for over 100 years.
Of course, the farm was not always used to grow lavender. In the past, its soils have produced dahlias, gladiolas, and even strawberries and grapes.
Today, the farm grows lavender both to nurture the bee population and to produce a variety of products.
Herbal deodorants, shampoos, and essential oils are only a few of the many wonderful products produced while Luvin Lavender supports the bee population.
The farm celebrates its deeply rooted heritage by frequently partnering with its community and local artists.
Throughout blooming season, guests are invited to view the farm throughout various events. Educational presentations, essential oil demonstrations, and garden parties are among its most celebrated community events.
In fact, the 4th Annual Lavender Festival & Art in the Garden celebration is right around the corner!
On Saturday, July 8th from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, July 9th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and a handful of creative classes will be offered at the farm.
Just imagine practicing yoga in the gardens with Great Lakes Ashtanga Yoga!
It might sound like a day dream, but it's even better! For $5 per class, you can participate in the most beautiful yoga class you can imagine. The class is offered Saturday at 10:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. and Sunday at noon.
During the festival, you can move and groove to the sweet sounds of unique music.
Gary Gifford and the Perry Library Ukulele Group and The Nursery Man Band will be providing tunes all weekend long. With groovy tunes and an enchanting environment, you will feel as if you stepped into a fairy tale.
Blue Heaven Alpaca Farm is one of the exhibitors with a booth at the event, so be prepared to learn about these fascinating creatures.
The festival is complete with creative activities and opportunity to learn about new things, so visitors can expect a well-rounded experience.
