Known as one of the largest in South Australia, Lyndoch Lavender Farm
has been welcoming visitors for many years. Its purple fields put on a stunning display when the plants are flowering. We visited in December just before harvesting began and I was rather impressed with the colourful landscape in front of me. The flies though were a little distracting. But, other than that, we had a lovely wander through the farm. Entry is free.
After our stroll, we decided to savour some of the delights on offer in the cafe. There was quite a selection to choose from, and after much pondering, we went for the lavender ice cream and lavender scones at $8.50 each. The taste of lavender was very distinct in both. Other offerings include honey, jams, chutneys, mustards and more. The shop also stocks a range of lavender products, especially for the body and home.
The farm is open every day except public holidays. It can be found at 407 Tweedies Gully Road in Lyndoch
approximately six minutes drive from the town centre. Do note that, when the cafe closes on weekdays, lavender ice cream is still available as takeaway. For more information, simply follow their Facebook page
