Lavender has been grown for medicinal and culinary reasons for centuries. Lavender flowers are harvested during the summer months when they are at their peak for perfume and properties, and they are transformed into a host of useful products from cosmetics to aroma therapy oils. Lavender can be used in food and bees prepare some of the finest quality honeys from lavender pollen.
Somerset Lavender grows and harvests lavender for its essential oil, onsite and visitors are welcome to explore the farm, learn about the distilling process and enjoy the Lavender and Herb gardens which contain over 20 varieties of Lavender, and a host of healing herbs like Thyme and Lemon Balm, Arnica and Echinacea.
Children will enjoy seeing animals, especially the guinea pigs and rabbits and the pond in our Lavender Garden is home to dragon flies, minnows, frogs and other interesting creatures.
There is also a cafe serving coffee, tea, light lunches and homemade cakes.
