Overview
More
Located in East Marion New York, Lavender by the Bay has been growing the highest quality lavender on Long Island for more than 15 years. We offer seasonal fresh cut bunches, dried lavender, lavender plants, lavender sachets and crafts, and honey from our own beehives. In 2002, we expanded our company by purchasing 17 acres of farmland in East Marion, New York. We have planted twenty varieties of lavender across ten acres of farmland, yielding over 80,000 plants for cultivation. In order to preserve the beauty, form, and peaceful nature of the farm, we must now impose a per person (12 years and older) fee to enter the fields while the flowers are in bloom. This fee goes towards the upkeep and maintenance of the plants, trails, and pavilion. The fee is $8 per person to enter the fields on weekends and national holidays, of which $1 will be donated to a local charity. During the week, the fee is reduced to $5 per person to encourage customers to enjoy the fields during less busy times. The lavender is typically in bloom mid/late June through mid-July, but is ultimately up to Mother Nature.

The farm was simply breath taking! BEAUTIFUL. The one unfortunate thing is that the gift shop is small and there weren't sufficient amount of staff to attend to all the customers timely. So......expect a long line/wait time if you go during high season or a...More

Great to visit during the peak season when the lavender is in full bloom! The blooms cover a huge expanse and make for some nice photo opportunities! Past peak bloom season, it probably is still nice to visit; their shop also sells some unique products.

We were there at the July4, Monday. The weather was nice with about 90 degree. We enjoyed the smell and liked the purple. We had good time staying there.

If you have an allergy to bees, you may want to re-think stopping here. But generally, they do not bother you. I recommend checking it out if you drive by but I wouldn't say it's worth going too out of your way. It's certainly quaint...More
