It’s almost lavender season again! And no, you don’t have to fly to France. Many Ontario farms have started to plant lavenders in the past few years and they have successfully grown a few Canadian-weather-resistant lavender species.

Bonnieheath Estate is one of the pioneers in farming lavender in Ontario and it is probably one of the most beautiful lavender farms in Canada. Best of all, the owners, Anita and Steve, are very photographer-friendly! In addition to lavender, they also have a couple of private ponds in the back where you might see wild life as well as a vast amount of wild flowers to support the wild life ecosystem.

I have arranged a mid-week outing to the Bonnieheath Estate Lavender and Winery on Friday July 5th. They are having a lavender festival on the weekend of July 6/7, but we can get access the day before that.  With luck this will be the peak days for the Lavender farm. This is the place we visited several years ago (July, 2013).

It’s about one and a half hours from Toronto (depending, of course, on traffic, and where you’re leaving from).

If you’d like to join us please sign up below or contact John Weatherburn via email at jweatherburn74@gmail.com and indicate how many people and whether you are willing to offer to carpool or need a ride. The farm does now have parking (so it is not limited as it was a few years ago).  We can arrive at 9:30 am or later.
