Visit Sequim: Lavender Farms in Washington

The Best Lavender Farms in Washington State/Lavender Festival in Sequim

Every year, we look forward to when the fields at the local lavender farms in Washington show their pretty purple hues. This area offers the perfect climate for lavender, as Sequim, WA, happens to sit on the same latitude as Provence, France; these fragrant and popular flowers thrive here. Sequim sits in the rainshadow of the Olympic Mountains, which is also one of the driest areas in the Northwest.

You’ll find a lovely selection of lavender farms in Washington near Sunny Sequim. Perhaps the most popular time to visit these fields is during the annual Lavender Festival in Sequim each July. This event is a massive celebration of this beautifully scented herb with farm tours, U-pick options, a giant street fair with vendors, and special events. Here, you can celebrate all things lavender in the “Lavender Capital of North America.”

While there’s still plenty of time before summer rolls in, July is such a popular time to visit the lavender farms in Washington, so you’ll want to plan in advance. Our sleepy town on the Olympic Peninsula comes to life with fragrant blooms and eager guests and outdoor enthusiasts discovering our stunning location on the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Our Sequim lodging property offers many accommodations, from waterfront cabins and private treehouses to a stunning iconic castle surrounded by lavender.

The Best Lavender Farms in Washington State

The Sequim Lavender Festival is certainly a fun weekend in Sequim and something you should attend if possible. The festival’s modest beginnings grew from restoring old dairy pastures with lavender fields in 1995. The lavender farms were the perfect crops for Sequim’s climate and are more sustainable since they require little water.

The first Lavender Festival was a tiny, local affair that included only eight lavender farms. Today, approximately 40 lavender farms grow 110,000 plants each year. The Sequim Lavender Festival welcomes more than 30,000 visitors from across the US and worldwide each year. The Lavender Festival is a weekend-long party with fun activities, shopping, and dining.

Whether you come to town for the Sequim Lavender Festival or not, taking the time to visit the many charming lavender farms in the valley is a must. Each farm offers its own memorable experience. Most offer unique lavender products such as oil, candles, and soaps. Some farms let you stroll through the fields and pick your own lavender bouquets or take a few varieties of lavender plants home to grow in your garden. Take your time, and explore Sequim’s Lavender Trail to your heart’s content. Here are a few lavender farms in Washington to check out this summer:

  1. Cedarbrook Lavender Farm: This is the first of the farms you’ll pass as you drive into Sunny Sequim. You’ll find fields and a farm store for goods.
  2. Old Barn Lavender: Stop here next for U-pick fields and a host of family-friendly activities.
  3. Jardin du Soleil Farm: Stroll through fields of fragrant lavender, pick your own bundles, say hello to the goats and chickens, and shop for certified organic lavender at this popular farm stop.
  4. In Bloom Lavender Farm: You can shop products year-round at their online store at this next stop on the Sequim Lavender Trail. But head here to explore the fields.
  5. Lavender Connection: This family-owned and operated Lavender farm opened in 2004, and it’s a great place to find these fragrant blooms.
  6. B&B Family Farm: The second-to-last stop on the Sequim Lavender Trail, this charming small farm offers tours and U-cuts from May to September.
  7. Victor’s Lavender Farm: The converted old milking barn is home to a lovely lavender shop as the fields bloom in purple hues outside the structure. This is the last stop along the Sequim Lavender trail if you’re coming from the east.

Another popular way to enjoy Sequim’s scenic lavender farms is the Tour de Lavender cycling event, which takes place the first week of August. There are two rides; the Fun Ride is for all ages and abilities, while the Metric Century Ride is more challenging. These biking events include scenic tours of ten fabulous lavender farms.
