A friend of mine and myself went on a field trip to “Lavender Harvest U-Pick Days” at Lavender Hill Farm in Niles, Michigan only 30 minutes from the Scottish Bed and Breakfast. It was a sunny hot days and we enjoyed a sample of lavendar lemonade and lavendar honey in the Lavendar Gift Shop which was filled with everything lavender. I found a pastoral setting with over 4000 lavendar plants that display their glory for a few weeks each summer from late June to mid July. Their speciality are the lavender essential oil and fragrant lavender water that they distill from their own lavender flowers, and the varietal lavender honey made by honeybees on their farm and a line of fine bath and body products made with lavender and other essential oils. The shop is open April through mid-December. A surprise were the black sheep, beehives, chickens, cats and wildlife that lives at and around the family farm. This hidden treasure is a must see!!! I will visit the Lavender Hill Farm next year.
