Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Nestled in the hills of South Kelowna against a backdrop of sweeping lake and valley views lies Okanagan Lavender & Herb Farm, a working family farm that has become a garden-inspired tourism destination. 18 different aromatic herbs and plants, including over 60 varieties of lavender, are grown, harvested, dried and distilled on-site for use in the hand-crafted botanical products that fill the farm boutique and online store. Launched as the Okanagan’s first Economusee site, visitors are invited to discover the traditional craft of essential oil and hydrosol distillation done on the farm. Three acres of garden are also open seasonally for guided and self-guided tours, with winding pathways, a cedar hedge maze, whimsical sculptures, water features and herb and xeriscape gardens. We invite you to come and entice your senses from May through December, with lavender at its peak in July. Events and workshops are offered throughout the season (please check website for more details).

We were very glad that we visited the Lavendar & herb farm..
The views were amazing except for the smoke... The shop is very pretty and the Lavendar tea sample was very good! Definitely recommend even if the season is over. Bought a fresh Lavendar bouquet and calming scent roll on as well.

Thank you for your kind review, Colleen. I hope you enjoy the lavender bundle and the Calm roll on - one of our favourites!

When we visited this farm, most of the lavender flowers had already been harvested. However, we managed to view the farm from the patio. The lawns are well-manicured and they have different types of herbs and plants in the farm.
Very relaxing to sit and admire even though we didn't see the purple flowers.
The staff in the small gift shop were very knowledgeable about their products and gave us great help and told us what their products can achieve.
The pure lavender oils were quite pricey but they're supposed to be prize-winning bushes.

Thanks for visiting our farm, ragammuffin! It's very nice to know how helpful and knowledgeable you found our staff to be, as we strive to provide our customers with both an educational and enjoyable experience when they visit. Glad you had a chance to smell our lavender essential oils too - we are very proud of the international recognition they have received!

Have a wonderful autumn and we hope to see you again!

Sincerely,
Keely

We were mildly disappointed to find that the cafe part of the facility was removed and certain products no longer available. We understand the reasons why (provincial gov't cracking down on interpretation of what a farm is) but that was part of the charm of the place. We'll still visit it for all our lavender needs, Happy to note that they were very accommodating even though we showed up at 10 minutes to closing time. ;)

Dear Big S,

Glad to hear you had an enjoyable time at the farm, despite our café being closed. Perhaps you were able to try our lavender lemonade and gelato? It's definitely a treat being able to experience the lavender aroma with all the senses!

Sincerely,
Keely

The entrance and restaurant and gift items are overpriced. The farm is small and can been seen in a glance.

Dear TravelLots2012,

I'm sorry to hear that your visit to our farm was not of the value you had been expecting. We do not have a restaurant, but have locally made lavender gelato and house made lavender lemonade (both featuring our farm-grown lavender) for visitors to enjoy. Our three acres of garden is cared for by both a landscaping crew and a full time employee, and the entrance fee includes an information booklet, a packet of farm-grown herbs and a recipe, as well as a ribbon for our wishing tree. We harvest 18 different aromatic herbs and plants from our gardens to be dried or distilled for use in our products. To complement these 100% farm-grown ingredients, we craft our products with sustainably sourced, organic and Fair Trade oils, butters and botanicals, all done on site in small batches. The cost of our products reflects the high quality ingredients that go into them, and we never sacrifice quality for quantity. I apologize that this information wasn't properly communicated to you by our staff, and I hope if you choose to visit us again, that you will have a more enjoyable experience.

Sincerely,
Keely Bruel
