Turns out one of the biggest lavender farms on the east coast is in Harwich on Cape Cod!
Cape Cod Lavender Farm is surrounded with 60 acres of conservation land with woodland and walking trails that overlooks Island Pond. Owners Cynthia and Mathew Sutphin have owned the farm since 1995. That’s the year they opened their farm to local’s to attend a harvest. The lavender farm is typically in bloom late June through early July.
They started the business with two best selling products, plants and loose lavender buds and 19 years latter have over 20 lavender products; which include home decor, culinary and mind, body and spirit needs.
In 2013, they expanded their enchanted garden, complete with a miniature replica medieval castle. The garden allows children and adults to let their imagination run among a variety of plants and faerie portals.
June and July is harvest times and the best time to explore the fields bloom and scents. The farm receives 10,000 visitors annually. Don’t forget to visit the gift shop!
