10 Amazing Lavender Farms in Sequim
Ah! Summer in Sequim Washington! Days of sunshine, in the open air, catching a breeze from the ocean, and the scent of Lavender. The small town of Sequim has the fortune of being the “sunniest place in western Washington” (as some locals say). It is situated on the eastern side of the Olympic Mountains, thus being on the receiving end of the natural phenomena known as the rain shadow.
All of the precipitation that comes off of the Pacific and moves across the Olympic Peninsula gets unloaded onto the western side of the mountains and by the time it gets to the Sequim area, it has dissipated. This makes this little town super sunny and super dry, especially in the summer months. This magic potion of a little rain in the winter, and sun in the summer makes for perfect conditions to grow lavender, and lots of it! Lavender farms dot this gorgeous landscape and are all just a few miles apart from one another.
The farmers here are proud of their unique place in the world and are eager to welcome visitors in the summer to see their crops. We’ve compiled a list of 10 lavender farms to visit in Sequim this summer. Please note: Check individual websites for what precautions are being taken for COVID-19.
