Self-guided walking tours are free and relaxing. Wander through a wonderland of lavender at Lavender Hill Farm in Northern Michigan!
Lavender Hill Farm gives visitors of all ages the unique opportunity to relax, explore and indulge. With more than 23 varieties of lavender on 33 acres, our farm offers a remarkable “hands-on” experience for everyone. Stroll our structured lavender labyrinth, hand cut your own bouquets and watch our bees at work. Be surrounded by the scents and scenery of acres of lavender.
Cool off on a hot day with our local hand-crafted ice cream. Swing on our swings, sip some lavender soda in a chair overlooking the fields. Let our chocolate truffles melt in your mouth. Smooth scented hand lotion on after picking your own lavender. Or just sit back and relax in the shade, surrounded by a fragrance like none other.
Watch lavender plants being distilled into oil in our Still House and stop by our Drying Shed to see the lavender gently swaying in the breeze as it hangs from long ropes. Visit our newly redesigned gift shop with decorative and therapeutic locally hand-crafted lavender products including sachets, beauty products, and more — all designed to bring the luxury of lavender to you, your home and your family.
From Ancient times, the labyrinth has been used for a path of quiet meditation and prayer. Different from a maze that challenges you to make choices, walking a labyrinthine path will lead you to the center and back out again, with no dead ends or false paths. It has been said, “In a maze you lose yourself. In a labyrinth you find yourself.”
At Lavender Hill Farm, we have created a classic, seven circuit labyrinth out of our lavender plants, giving visitors the perfect space to reflect and recharge amidst the sweet scents and natural beauty of lavender.
Guidelines for Walking the Labyrinth
Approach the stone piles and enter the pathway at your own pace, walking quietly and in respect of those who have entered before you. Walk until you reach the center. Pause. Retrace your steps to exit.
There may be others walking in the opposite direction. On your journey you may step aside to allow others to pass. You may choose to reflect on a phrase such as: “all things are possible…” or, “Be still and know….” Peace be with you.
