A while ago I noticed some facebook friends visiting a lavender farm, I was curious so asked for the name, then I sent the owner of Hauser Creek Lavender farm a message to see when we could visit, the farm has a couple of open houses one in the summer around harvest time and one in the fall.
We recently visited the fall open house. Its a beautiful farm in between Mocksville and Lewisville NC close to where I live. It makes a fun Sunday afternoon trip and has nice walking trails through the woods. The family inherited the land and started growing lavender in fact there are only two places growing it in the State. Its a work in progress and a passion and speaking to them its not all that easy to grow here. The farm, has pretty barns and an old farm house made to look like it would maybe 80-100 years ago. The kids enjoyed looking around. The day we visited we were allowed to pick flowers and take them home that was a treat the owner Alethea Segal is an avid gardener and the gardens are a delight.
The farm sells soaps, dried lavender, and culinary lavender perfect for gifts. During the peak of harvest they also sell at The piedmont triad farmers market in Greensboro.

It's a lovely place to visit, they also rent it out for weddings, if your looking for a scenic drive and a fun farm visit consider putting one of their open houses on your calendar.
