A quaint turn of the century farm located in Upstate New York! Once a fruit farm, this beautiful property; with it's nostalgic barns and peacful setting; is now home to Ol'Factory Lavender & Herb Farm.
Lavender was first planted in 2002 in a test garden. The idea was to see if lavender would grow well given our harsh winters and short summers. We soon found out that our proximity to the beautiful Lake Ontario offers a microclimate that has turned out to be very conducive to growing lavender. The Farm now grows a variety of lavenders used for crafting, (soapmaking of course), aromatherapy and culinary.
Festival on the Farm
Olfactory Farm hosts an annual Lavender Festival each year. The event consists of lecturers on a wide array of topics pertaining to lavender & herbs. There is also lavender picking, craft workshops, artisan vendors, wine tasting and more during the weekend. For more information go to www.nylavenderfestival.com
