We had an amazing day yesterday wandering around Bucks County! We were invited to a private tour of Carousel Farm in Mechanicsville. This stunning farm features acres of lavender as well as lamas, Scottish highland cattle, donkeys, and horses. Their gift shop features all sorts of wonderful products made from their own lavender. The farm is open to the public Saturdays from 9 am to 5 pm. Bring a picnic lunch and spend some time admiring the lavender fields. They also offer guided tours of the private gardens and original structures on Wednesdays at 10 am and other days by appointment for groups of 10 or more. Cost of the tour is $10 and worth every penny.
We stopped for a real treat at OWowCow (gourmet, organic, small batch ice cream!) on the way home. Yum!!!
The farm is just 2 miles from Peddler’s Village so it’s a great add-on to a day of shopping or wandering around the rest of Bucks County.
The farm is about an hour from The Lafayette Inn. The drive there is as picturesque and worthwhile as the destination.
