Sequim, WA – Lavender Fields

Take the Seattle-Bainbridge Island Ferry and head towards Port Angeles.  Take the first Sequim Exit and stop at the Chamber of Commerce for information.  Grab a map of the local lavender farms and start your tour.   For farm tours, concerts, arts and crafts, visit during July for the Lavender Farm Faire.  www.sequimlavenderfarms.org

On this visit we went to the Purple Haze Lavender Farm, one of Sequims oldest and largest certified organic lavender farms.  www.purplehazelavender.com.  They have U-pick lavender and a store full of soaps, lotions, and teas.  Stop at the refreshment stand for lavender lemonade or lavender ice cream (both were very good) or be really brave and try a lavendar margarita.  I also had a delicious lavender mocha at an espresso shop on the way into town.

                     

Head west on 101, stop at the Olympic Winery for a taste of Lavender Wine and lavender cheese.  The winery is in a renovated cedar barn and is run by a group of ladies known as “The Olympic Women in Wine.”  Sample a tasting of their Working Girl Wines including Rose the Riverter.  A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.
