Visitors often ask us “what are the best lavender farms in Sequim?” so we thought it might be helpful if we put it on the website so you can plan your trip in advance!
Best Lavender Farms in Sequim
Here are our top recommendations for lavender farms to visit, that are open all summer long! Read below for more information about why we recommend each farm, and a list of additional farms for you to check out during your visit.
We would be disingenuous if we put another farm first. We think our farm, Lavender Connection, is the best lavender farm in Sequim (or let’s be honest: the entire world.)
40+ Varieties of Lavender
We have the most varieties of lavender for U-cut in Sequim (approximately 40 as of 2023). In addition, we have even more newly planted in the fields and additional unique species to view in our garden. With so many shades of purple, pink, and white, and our historic dairy barn in the background, it’s easy to get a phone’s worth of Instagrammable shots to make your friends and family jealous.
Lavender Essential Oil Sampling
Also, because we have so many varieties planted, we distill more than 20 different varieties of lavender essential oil. We don’t know of any other lavender farm, anywhere, with so many! At our “aromatic tasting bar” in the distillation gazebo you can learn how we extract lavender essential oil from the plants, and smell/sample the different varieties – which are available to purchase. You’ll start to pick up on the different scent profiles; it’s like a wine tasting for your nose! (And it’s always free to do.)
Shop, Picnic & Play
Our spacious gift shop is located in the barn, and features bath, body, and home products all made by hand, by us, with our lavender. We also have treats like shortbread cookies, chocolate, and lavender ice cream. The farm is always free to visit, and there’s no time limit – we encourage you to bring a picnic and stay the entire afternoon if you want! Even your pets are welcome, as long as they’re leashed. We also have chickens (keep an eye out for Fern the Naughty Chicken who is a gifted escape artist and likes to visit with customers) and we sell their farm fresh eggs when they’re available.
Now that our shameless plug is out of the way, on to the rest of the list! One of the best parts of visiting the lavender farms of Sequim is that there are so many lavender farms in close proximity to each other, and to other amazing places like the Dungeness Spit and Olympic National Park. You can spend an entire weekend exploring and still not scratch the surface of all there is to see. Thus, most people who visit our farm don’t just turn around and go home when they’re done – they plan to go to another lavender farm, and they want to know our insider recommendations for where to head next. After asking a few questions based on what they liked about our farm, we can easily direct them to where to go.
So read on for our recommendations for where to go after visiting Lavender Connection!
If you like the multi-generational “family farm” feel of Lavender Connection, you will also love B&B Family Farm (and the family who runs it). They offer regular free farm tours where you can learn about the process of lavender farming – no need for a reservation. They are also the biggest lavender farm in Sequim, with 12 acres and more than 14,000 plants!
If you’re fascinated by all the different varieties of lavender we grow, we encourage you to check out Fleurish Lavender. They only have 10 or so varieties out in their fields, but they offer a viewing garden with 100 different varieties of lavender to see! Tucked away in the foothills, this farm is surrounded by forest which is incredibly peaceful. Also, they have alpacas, so. You have to go see the alpacas.
If you love the photo ops at Lavender Connection, your next best spot for pictures is Jardin du Soleil Lavender. Nestled up against hundreds of acres of protected wildlife, you can capture gorgeous, sweeping views of fields and flowers. They also have goats and chickens! They offer special events throughout the summer, like Brunch in the Blooms – be sure to check out their website. Please note that during special events and Sequim Lavender Weekend, they will charge a fee.

Still, check ahead for days/hours as you plan your trip. Your best bet is to head over to www.sequimlavender.org to view the farms that are open all summer, check out the Events page, and download the Driving & Cycling Guide for the Sequim Lavender Trail. See you this summer!
