Lavender Fields, Milton, Delaware, Lavender Farm, Lewes Farmers’ Market, Rehoboth Beach Farmers’ Market
I don’t even remember how many years it has been since I visited Lavender Fields. Some weeks ago, a friend mentioned the farm. On Tuesday, when I visited the Rehoboth Beach Farmer’s Market, there they were.
I chatted a bit and if you would really want to know more about hours of operation and what this working farm is all about, please visit www.lavenderfieldsde.com. They also have a blog www.lavenderfieldsfarm.blogspot.com. The address is 18864 Cool Spring Rd., Milton, DE 19968. E-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. Telephone is 302-684-1514.
From Rt. 1 North or South, take Rt. 9 and 404 West toward Georgetown, travel 4 miles, just before the railroad tracks take a left on Cool Spring Rd. Travel 7/10 of a mile to Lavender Fields at Warrington Manor LLC (#18864), on the right.
Lavender Fields is a historic 5 acre property that dates to 1776.
Everything is done by hand from planting to harvesting. Lavender is easy to grow in and around the Delmarva Peninsula because of its favorable climate and soil.
The herb, has calming properties; it can also be used for cooking.
This farm hosts tour groups, luncheons, teas and special events. Please give them a call and check the website for all kinds of great information.
You will find Lavender Fields on Saturdays at the Historic Lewes Farmers’ Market located at Shipcarpenter and 3rd St. from 8 until Noon.
