There's no better time than summer to escape the city and the crowds. A short day trip south of the city will land you at Neob Farms, a lavender farm near Toronto in Niagara-on-the-Lake, where you can wander the lavender fields, pick your own bouquets, and shop an assortment of home-made lavender products. What are you waiting for?!
The farm has not yet reopened for guided tours, but it is inviting visitors to participate in self-guided walks through the lavender fields and aromatic greenhouses.
Here, you can wander through the fields, snapping envy-inducing Instagram shots.
But there's so much more to it than that.
You can also shop their assortment of natural beauty products, essential oils, and household goods — all made from their gorgeous organic lavender.
You can visit seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. And if that list of reasons to go wasn't long enough, the tickets are relatively cheap at just $5.
So you’ll have lots of cash left over to peruse the gift shop, which is probably a good thing.
And with everything that has been going on in the world ovcer the last few months, this activity is the perfect socially-distanced day trip for you and your friends.
Miss the crowds, hit the countryside, and stock up on everything lavender!
The farm is open for summer, but Neob’s website encourages visitors to visit on a harvest day.
Then, it says, “the scent of lavender fills the whole field, making it a beautiful time to enjoy the [farm].”
It's harvest season right now, according to Neob, so hurry up and start planning your trip!
So, the next time you’re looking for a day-trip out of Toronto, or a socially-distanced photo-op, you know where to go!
