Lavender Wind Farm lives on Whidbey Island up in Washington state. Both farms allow you to go in and wander about to your hearts content, no charge. I highly recommend both, just for the scents alone.
There are rolling fields of lavender. There is a giant garden which boasts flowers of many types, and also some very shy sunflowers! The garden has a lot of other herbs like dill and chives, so just a simple stroll through the grounds is a very aromatically pleasing experience.
Someone was very artistic in their landscaping. There is a pond full of lilies, whimsical little bridges with metal fish ornaments, and even a purple water bath. A closed gazebo/shed where you can see all of the lavender bunches drying. But my most favorite thing was the lavender labyrinth.
I visited in the evening, with overcast skies and white lace clouds hovering over the mountains in the distance across from Ebey’s Landng. I felt like I had fallen into an Ann of Green Gables book.
