For a couple of weeks in late June and early July, over 14,000 lavender plants at Cape Cod Lavender Farm burst into purple bloom. Come stay at The Captain’s Manor Inn and venture off to visit this beautiful spot. The farm is on 20 secluded acres, and surrounded by 60 acres of conservation land. We have had guests who want to take a day trip to Chatham or Provincetown, make the farm a stop on the way to those towns or on the way back to our Falmouth Cape Cod bed and breakfast.
The Cape Cod Lavender Farm is one of only two such farms in Massachusetts — the other is located in Franklin County and is a smaller lavender farm. “Lavender tourism” started in the late 1990s in the United States.
Some of the products sold at the Lavender Farm include lavender chocolate ($2.75), lavender shortbread ($8.25) and lavender-lemon marmalade ($8) a jar, lavender soap ($7.50 a bar), hand cream ($7.50), candles ($18), herbes de Provence — a mixture of herbs for cooking sold for $14.95 for eight ounces — and the fresh and dried bunches, $10, and buds, $12 for a half-pound bag.
