Visiting the Farm

Opening Weekend: July 4th and 5th

We are so happy to be able to share the farm with you this year.  With all that 2020 has brought upon us, we could all use a stroll through the lavender field.  Plans have been adjusted and we expect to open our farm gates on July 4th for a limited time.  As we approach our opening date, we may need to adjust plans, however here are the highlights and what to expect when visiting the farm.

We will open Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Opening day will be July 4th and we hope to remain open on weekends until August 2nd.

The Fun Stuff

  • We have no entrance fee for visiting the lavender field. 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.

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

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.  Leave them alone and they will leave you alone.  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.
