A seven-acre lavender farm in Richmond is preparing to open its doors to visitors for the first time.
Lavenderland, a brand new farm located on Steveston Highway, is opening on Saturday, June 19 until mid-September this year.
Peggy Lee, who works at Lavenderland, told the Richmond News that they are recommending visitors visit at the end of June when the lavender is in full bloom.
She added that the blooming season for the flowers will last the entire summer.
Despite the challenges that COVID-19 has brought, Lee said they are confident that people will still be interested in their farm and event.
“We’ve received quite a lot of emails from people asking about our opening date and what types of lavenders we have,” she said.
“I think more people might want to come out this year to spend a few hours here to clear their mind.”
The farm will feature four types of lavender: SuperBlue, Grosso, Melissa and French.
Michelle Wu, manager of Lavenderland, told the News last year that it took her and her partners five years to turn their field into a lavender farm.
The farm initially planned to open in 2020, but the pandemic forced them to postpone it a year.
Visitors are recommended to book online in advance due to pandemic protocols. Tickets are $15.75 for one person or $42 for a family pass for two hours. Options are also available for group bookings.
