White Oak Lavender Farm is located near Harrisonburg, Virginia. The farm features a lavender gift shop, a wine tasting building, classes for creating your own lavender gift items, tours, and more. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my visit, starting from the vineyard we passed on the way in.
The farm is gorgeous. Although the lavender was not in full bloom, due to heavy rain I was told, the scent and beauty of the lavender fields was still present.
I began by entering the gift shop. Lavender soaps, tea, coffee, olive oil, spray, shampoo, and even ice cream were available.
White Oak Lavender Farm was the most crowded attraction I visited during my entire senior project. There were small children all the way up to older retired couples. The farm offers activities for all ages including wine tasting, a petting zoo, and tours.
All of the products for sale are made in Harrisonburg and those that are not made directly by White Oak Lavender Farm all carry on the lavender theme. For example, the store also carried lavender chocolate and tea towels. The items were all priced well and even the admission to what they call “The Discovery Area”, which is the petting zoo and lavender fields, cost only $3.
The verdict: I highly recommend a visit to White Oak Lavender Farm. The gift shop is great and is half the fun. The farm animals are entertaining for children, and there is wine tasting for adults as well as other fun lavender themed refreshments for all ages. If interested, make sure to call ahead and see if lavender picking, tours, and/or classes are available during the time you plan to visit.
