Start off your day at Basic Necessities in Nelleysford to pick up your picnic lunch.  Let owner Kay Pfatz guide you in your selection of French wines, artisan breads, cheeses and more as the perfect accompaniment to the lavender fields you are about to visit. On your 40-minute scenic rural drive to Inglewood, stop off at Saunders Brothers Farm Market for some fresh produce and baked goods to add to your picnic. You can even visit their farm museum to see how it was done way back when!

When you arrive at Inglewood Lavender Farm, stroll through the lavender fields to select the perfect spot for your blanket or grab one of the picnic tables for you and your friends.  Enjoy an al fresco meal in the country listening to the honey bees buzzing and the sheep baaing.  Afterwards, visit the quaint shop inside the renovated smokehouse and find all natural bath products and a curated selection of fine gifts.  Bring your camera for an abundance of photo opportunities!
