The Blossoming of Ontario’s Lavender

A go-to destination features premium, handcrafted lavender products and an agro-tourism experience.

As the warm weather approaches, it is time to go outside and take a breath of fresh air. At Terre Bleu Farm, located west of Toronto, that air is wonderfully fragrant. Ontario’s largest lavender farm boasts 40,000 plants with eight varieties that bloom at different times throughout the season.

The farm celebrates peak bloom season on June 23. Go and you’ll learn about the plant’s relaxing aroma and how it can contribute to natural beauty. Potential benefits include detoxifying skin and shrinking pores, decreasing stress, improved sleep quality, and clearing of congestion. At the farm, you can see the blooms from late July until the middle of August. English lavender, with a dark purple flower, is the first to bloom, followed by French lavender which has a light purple flower.

Activities include guided walking tours, meditation workshops, yoga, visiting the Terre Bleu oil distillery and shopping for lavender products and flowers. Entry to the farm store requires admission on weekends. On weekdays, the farm’s store may be limited to paid admission visitors, as well, if there is high demand.

If you go, be aware of the rules:
  • Do not step over or pick the lavender
  • Hand-held cameras only
  • Stay on marked trails
  • Respect private property
  • Smoking is prohibited on the grounds of the farm
  • No pets allowed

Admission varies, depending on the season and whether it is a weekday or weekend. The farm is open seven days a week, 11a.m.-4p.m., from June 1 to September 2019. Mark the dates on your calendars and make sure you catch the peak lavender season.
