Carousel Farm Lavender.

As you drive down the beautiful Bucks County roads that surround the Grocery store, you’re bound to see the stunning lavender fields of Carousel Farm. First established in 1748, Carousel Farm has had many lives over the centuries, once a dairy farm, later a horse farm and, in the mid-20th century, an exotic animal farm. When the current owners moved to the farm 10 years ago, they looked to maintain its rural beauty, yet enhance it with something beyond the expected produce and livestock.

The inspiration for Carousel Farm Lavender came when they were traveling through the beautiful Provence countryside, where the rolling hills are graced with old grape vines and lavender fields, against a stunning backdrop of centuries-old field stone barns and farmhouses. The Carousel Farm, with its field stone farmhouse, 18th century stone barn and rolling fields broken only by field stone walls, seemed the perfect place to replicate the South of France.

Their lavender fields, now over seven years old, are nothing short of amazing. Despite their initial worry that the harsh Northeast climate might not be ideal for the project, after testing the soil they carefully selected  four varieties of plants, both French and English, and the plants are flourishing. They now have over 15,000 organically-grown plants, each one planted, pruned and harvested by hand. The beauty of their fields is painted regularly by local painters and photographers who spend their days drawing inspiration from the fields.
