Where can you see breathtaking Lavender Farms in the United States?
I believe huge flower gardens are only visited by flower buyers and film production people.More over large flower fields like Lavender Farms are included in the tour itinerary of neither individual tourists nor package tour organizers.
I wish there are exclusive package tours to visit large flowers gardens such as:
- Lavender fields
- Rose Gardens
- Tulip gardens
- Jasmine farm
Someone sent me inviting photographs of stunningly beautiful lavender farms to add them to my Pinterest Pin Boards. This made me do a bit of research on the web to find out if there are big-size lavender fields in the United States and where one can see breathtaking Lavender Farms in the United States? I also wanted to know whether such lavender flower gardens allow visitors, show them around and sell lavender products such as lavender essential oils, perfumes, talcum powder, and lavender flower dust.

- Manufacturers of essential oils for cosmetic and therapeutic visit lavender farms to buy the flowers in bulk
- Films are shot in the backdrop of rows and rows of lavender flowers

Los Poblanos Lavender Farms, New Mexico
Contact: 4803 Rio Grande Blvd NW, Los Ranchos De Albuquerque, NM 87107, USA Phone: +1 505-344-9297
I know Mexico is not a favorite holiday destination among the majority of the Europeans but there is no dearth of tourists to Mexico from all other states of America. A fair number of Indians also prefer New Mexico as their vacation destination.
The Los Poblanos allows visitors during June and July only when the lavender blooms fully. Probably, this is the only lavender farms in the United States that offers lodging and boarding facilities at the farm site itself. The rooms are more than comfortable and the food is nothing but hygienic and tasty.
I have read about three more lavender farms in the United States.
- Purple Haze Lavender fields, Sequim, Washington
