Special to the Record
Shamrock Farm is inviting the public to its third annual Lavender Harvest Open Farm Event, July 17-20, between noon and 5 p.m.
Stop by and enjoy an afternoon at the farm surrounded by the sights and scents of lavender, including lavender harvesting and lavender essential oil distillation demonstrations. Ask questions, see the barn where hundreds of lavender bundles are hung to dry, pick-your-own lavender, and wand making. A variety of lavender snacks and refreshments will be available, including sweet lavender lemonade and Benino Gelato’s delicious lavender lemon gelato.
Bring a chair or blanket, have a picnic lunch if you wish. Sit and relax among the aromatic lavender in the field as the symphony of bees float over you.
A variety of the farm’s lavender products and plants will be available for sale. Admission is free and the farm accepts cash or cheques for any purchases.
Shamrock Farm is located in Comox at 2276 Anderton Rd. For more information, visit the farm online at www.shamrockfarm.ca or call 250-339-1671.
