A couple of months ago, my friends and I decided to spend a Sunday to venture out to some place new and outside of our comfort zone. We didn't think twice about it when one of our friends mentioned there was a beautiful secluded lavender farm in the outskirts of the Toronto city. It was in a town called Prince Edward County. I have heard many great things about this quaint little town. Actually, I've seen many beautiful photos surfaced the social media platform. I was really surprised that Brian (my pro photographer & best friend) had planned out this day trip really well because I am usually the person to plan everything most times.
The lavender farm was a 2-hour drive from Toronto, so pack many snacks and beverages for the road. We stopped a couple of times for additional snacks, Starbucks and washroom breaks so there are a few service stations (a.k.a. OnRoute stations) on the way as well. Photography is allowed on this farm so feel free to bring your camera and take photos, however, professional photography is not allowed, such as wedding, prom, grad, engagement, etc. There is an admission fee of $5 to get in to this farm which is pretty fair. The lavender field itself is lush and less crowded than Neob Lavender Boutique in Niagara-on-the-Lake so I am very happy with the far distance discovery.
After the photoshoot, we shopped their lavender boutique, ate lavender ice cream, drank lavender lemonade, and made our way over to the Drake Devonshire for dinner and watched the sunset.
