Imagine the fragrance wafting through the summer air as 8000 lavender plants are bursting in bloom! Walk through the fields and breathe deep! Ahhh. Intoxicating, isn’t it? You’re invited to do just that as well as pick your own lavender bouquets at King George Lavender Farm in Barnwell, South Carolina (just 68 miles from the SC State House in Columbia)!
King George Lavender Farm opened in 2020 and is the culmination of a dream for George and Elinor Poole. They purchased the 80 acres on which they grow lavender in 2016 and added 35 acres last year. It’s a family affair as the Pooles’ adult children and grandchildren each do their part to support the endeavor. Three varieties of lavender are grown. The farm produces its own line of bath and body products like soap, lotions, and bath salts as well as linen sprays, room sprays, bug repellents, and more. These items are available in the farm store and online here.
Their 2022 season opens this Saturday, June 4, 2022, and this special day is called Lavender Fest! Enjoy lavender picking, shopping, food, music, and a bounce house for the kids from 10 am – 5 pm. They will be selling hot dogs, sausage, pepper & onion, chips, ice cream, soda, water, beer, wine, and wine slushies. Their farm store will be open with a wide variety of lavender products and home decor as well as products from other vendors. Admission is $5 per person, and kids under 2 are free. (you pay for the lavender bundles you pick separately). Can’t make it on June 4th? They’re open for you-pick lavender on Fridays and Saturdays from 9 am – 5 pm from June 10th – July 9th, 2022. Purchase your tickets for all you-pick dates here.
