Purple or any color in that family is my favorite color, so I had to make a visit to the beautiful Orchard View Lavender Farm. The farm is located at 101 Karrsville Rd., Port Murray, NJ 07865 and opens on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10 am-5 pm. Entrance and parking is free. Orchard View have many events from Yoga, Wine events, Self Care Day Retreats, and many others.
We drove to the farm on a beautiful day blue sky day. The weather was perfect, unfortunately we missed the lavender bloom in the fields. However there were many lavender flowers all around the beautiful property. Orchard View is 10.5 acres that date back to 1765 and has been restored. This would be a great place to hold a small wedding or special event for 80 or less guests. They have a list of planners to help with your special day.
We spent around 2 hours enjoying the peaceful and serene setting. We headed over to the Lavender Farm Stand. When you walk in you smell the wonderful fragrance of lavender that calms you and make you feel like you’re on cloud 9. The shop sell everything from teas, essential oils, house items, and soap. I purchased some lavender Shea butter and lavender brownies. They also have lavender lemonade to taste!
The owners were very helpful and friendly and told me the best time to see the lavender bloom. Which is the end of July. This is a tranquil place to come and relax. There is not a place where you wouldn’t get a picture to capture your time here. From the lavender, flowers, architecture, and butterflies that gracefully fly the property you will have a lovely day.
