I already miss summer so much! I am this kind of person who has never complained about a heatwave since I can be cold even during the hot temperatures. I don’t even want to think about winter right now, so I am creating this blog post to appreciate the beautiful summer we had.
In August, Konrad and I took a road trip to one of the most gorgeous farms I have ever seen. Both sunflower and lavender farms are located in Campbellville, Ont., just about an hour west of Toronto, which makes them a perfect destination for a one-day city break. And if you love flowers and nature, believe you are going to fall in love with this place!
Lavender Farm 🌸
Terre Bleu is the largest lavender farm in Ontario as it is home to over 40,000 lavender plants. This farm is a great place to relax and unwind amongst Terre Bleu’s beautiful and inspiring landscape while learning about the commitment to education, sustainable farming and personal well-being. There are many attractions to see and visit including a farm store, essential oil distillery, honey house, equestrian ring, herb bar and stroll through the magical 200-year-old cedar forest, all surrounded by the spectacular fields of purple and the perfumed air that swirls about.
Lavender flowers typically bloom in July and early August, but even though we went there almost at the end of summer we were lucky enough to still be able to see some beautifully bloomed rows.
And oh there are also delicious lavender ice cream that everyone must try once on the farm! 🍦😋
Sunflower Farm 🌻
Sunflower farm is located just beside the lavender farm, you can take a five-minute walk to get from one to another. Seeing so many beautiful sunflowers in one place melted my heart and became the highlight of my summer. Similarly to Bleu Terre, sunflower farm provides a ton of breathtaking views and endless delights.
This one tranquil day on the farms was a great way for me to relax and take a break from the big city. It is always amazing for me to experience how nature can calm me down and set my mind towards positive thinking.
