Terre Bleu Lavender Farm

I am always looking for interesting summer activites and recently I discovered Terre Bleu Lavender Farm just 45 minutes outside of Toronto.

As the city fades in the background and you exit the highway into Milton, there are long country roads surrounded by nature. The air seems cleaner, the landscape is splashed with vivid greens and you can spot a few animals grazing in the distance.

Bask in the warm sunshine as the scent of fresh lavender envelops you. The beautiful fields have a calming effect. 

Rates vary between $8.00 during low season, $20.00 on weekends and $15.00 on weekdays but you can usually visit the shop for free. Last entry is 4:30 pm but I recommend arriving early to avoid the crowds.

The guided tour includes a visit to the essential oil distillery, art exhibits, honey house, equestrian ring, herb bar and 200 year old cedar forest. On weekends there are a number of events including yoga in the fields and live music on the outdoor stage. If you have any questions the staff is always eager to help and exceptionally welcoming.

Explore the entire farm at a leisurely pace, there are various types of lavender in the fields and you will notice an abundance of little honeybees happily pollinating the vibrant buds. There is also an apiary on-site where fresh lavender honey is produced. All of the products are handmade so stop by the store for some lavender cheese, souvenirs, candles or beauty products that promote good health, rest and relaxation.

The art installations found throughout the farm symbolize new beginnings and peace. The big yellow door has a quote that reads – “walk through the door, your worries behind you, your joys are ahead.”

To escape the summer heat find a shaded bench or grab some tasty lavender lemonade and hang out on the patio. The cedar forest is usually a few degrees cooler with a light breeze that flows through the trees. Sit back, unwind and find your zen.

I enjoyed snapping photos among the wildflowers and indulging in delicious lavender ice cream! The flavor is mild and refreshing.
