Sequim, Washington is known as the Lavender Capital of North America, and come July, you can smell the fragrant herb in the air just about anywhere on the North Olympic Peninsula.
The Sequim Lavender Festival brings thousands of visitors to the lavender farms in the area to enjoy Olympic Peninsula Wine and seafood, live music, and of course, lavender and anything you can imagine that can be made from it.If you make the trip to Sequim this time of year, two organic lavender farms are a must-see. Purple Haze Lavender Farm hosts events, and features a vacation rental farm house, as well as the perennial summer favorite, lavender ice cream.
Jardin du Soleil features hand crafted lavender products, including culinary lavender, and lavender-infused teas.
Each of these farms has its own unique personality and products, as well as photo-ready vistas.
