3 Stunning Lavender Fields in Long Island

Lavender Fields Long Island – Perhaps surprisingly, fragrant, graceful lavender belongs to the mint family of herbs. Well known and easily recognized by its silvery-green foliage and purple, pink, or white flowers, it is a perennial plant that can live up to 20 years.

Lavender is grown throughout the world today, and is native to areas surrounding the Mediterranean and countries east of India. Lavender flowers represent purity, silence, devotion, serenity, grace, and calmness.

Lavender season in Long Island is from mid-June through mid-July.

I normally compile a list of places but I can just find three Lavender Farms in Long Island.  Please do let me know if/where I have missed one!


Lavender by the Bay

7540 Main Rd, East Marion, NY 11939

Lavender by the Bay – “Located on the North Fork of Long Island, Lavender by the Bay, a family-owned farm has been growing the highest quality lavender for over 20 years. We offer seasonal fresh cut English and French lavender bunches, dried lavender, lavender plants, lavender sachets, body products 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 15 acres of farmland, yielding over 100,000 plants for cultivation. In 2018 we expanded to our second farm in Calverton, New York.
The lavender is typically in bloom mid/late June through mid-July, but is ultimately up to Mother Nature. In order to preserve the beauty, form, and peaceful nature of the farm, tickets are required to enter the fields while the flowers are in bloom. Tickets will be released as we get closer to the bloom.”
