Visiting the Farm

Our opening day for the 2021 season will be July 3rd

We will be updating the below details as we get closer to our opening date and as the current COVID situation in our area evolves.  We are very excited to meet you all this season!

The Fun Stuff

  • We have no entrance fee for visiting our farm. In return, we ask that you be respectful to our family farm, our neighbours and our beautiful, quaint village.

  • Parents, grandparents, children, strollers and wagons are all welcome.

  • Take as many photos as you would like (don't forget to tag @southbayfields). Professional photographers, please see our Photography page.

  • We will have an open air shop (yes, that is a fancy way of saying tent) with all of our lavender goodies available for purchase.  In addition to our products, you can also purchase fresh lavender and sunflower bundles.

  • We have free range chickens; they do enjoy saying "hi" to our guests and may even join you for a photo.

  • We have over 4,500 lavender plants for you to wonder through

  • We have over 10,000 sunflowers to take photos with and take a short stroll through

  • Our wheat field surrounds our lavender and sunflowers, there will be a small path for you to walk amongst the wheat field

  • In addition to the 

The Not So Fun Stuff (a.k.a the "rules")

  • All current COVID-19 rules and regulations will be in effect for your safety and ours.  Please sanitize before arriving, please keep at least 6 feet from other guests (our rows are 7 feet apart), and please stay home if you are not feeling well.

  • Our onsite washroom facilities are not in place yet; please use your own restroom prior to your visit.

  • All strollers, wagons and mobility devices are welcome. Please keep in mind that this is a working farm, so passengers in these devices may be in for a bumpy ride. 

  • We will not be allowing pick your own lavender this year, however we will have freshly harvested bundles available at our shop!

  • Bees love lavender, and we love bees.  Our bees are here for the lavender, not for you.  Please be mindful of them and in return they should be mindful of you.  If you are allergic, please bring your own medication as we do not have any onsite.

  • We love animals, however dogs and a peaceful lavender farm don't always mix (purple lavender bushes are not fire hydrants, but the dogs don't get that!).  We ask that you keep your pup at home.  If you would like a photo with your pet in our field, please use the contact form and we can arrange a time outside of our opening hours.

  • The speed limit on our road is 50 km/h; please respect this for the safety of our kids and neighbours.
