Lavender Pond Farm

This post is part of the CT bucket list





The sky was a gorgeous blue and the sun blessed us with its warmth. Anna and I strolled through the fields with our amazing friend Alessandra snapping photos.




After we were satisfied with the amount of photos taken....





We lounged on the open patio for a length of time.




The air was fragrant with the calming scent of lavender, and Anna sprawled out across the ground enjoying the shade from the umbrella. Alessandra and I discussed a number of topics while taking in the view.




The lavender train passed us on its rounds a couple times, and we wondered what the farm looked like a couple weeks earlier, perhaps with even more blooms to ride through.





Lavender Pond Farm is a 25 acre lavender farm in Killingworth, CT. They are open 7 days a week even if it is raining out, from 10AM-4PM.




What I love about this farm is that there are things to do, or not, if you prefer just hanging around.





They encourage a nice sit down by providing benches throughout and a patio beside the gift shop. There is also a picnic area behind the gazebo.




If you're looking for a bit of a stay with a view on property, there is an AirBnB, above the barn.It boasts a view of the pond.




 They also have lots of places for perfect photos. If you want some good Instagram photos I highly recommend a stop in. Earlier is better, as it does begin to get crowded around noon and you'll be hard pressed to take photos without people in them.



The train cost 5$ to ride and you can find the schedule on their website, it may not run in inclement weather.





Things to note:
-AirBnB on property
-Field Bistro on weekends (according to website this will open in 2020)
-Lavender themed gift shop
-Public restroom- portapotties
-Pet friendly
-Yoga classes (check website)
-Train rides
-Walkable lavender fields (no picking flowers)
-Arnold M Graton covered bridge
-2 lovely ponds
-Bench seating throughout, patio seating at gift shop

-Picnic area behind gazebo
-Gorgeous healthy honey bee hives! Careful not to disturb them though.
