Lavender – it’s one of my favorite scents! And a visit to a lavender farm in Ohio has been on my bucket list for a LONG time! This is going to be the year I actually go and see it in all its glory. 🙂
I did a little research and found that Ohio has a few lavender farms across the state and most are open to the public (at times). Some even plan tours and festivals around this popular plant.
In case you’re interested in tracking one down too, here’s our list of lavender fields and farms in Ohio. We’ve thrown in lavender festivals and events for each farm as a bonus!
When Do Lavender Fields in Ohio Bloom?
While warmer states have blooms as early as May, Ohio’s lavender typically blooms in June or July. Some varieties will bloom more than once in a season which can result in blooms throughout the summer. Check out the individual farm listings below for farm specific blooming details.
Weather does play a huge part in the timing of blooming plants so be sure to check individual farms before you head out.

Can I Dry and Save My Lavender?
After your visit, be sure to save and dry your lavender sprigs. Simply gather the stems together, wrap, and tie. Hang the sprig in a dry, sheltered area (garage, basement, etc.) until dry.
Dried lavender is very fragrant. Use it to create sachets, use it to adorn packages, hang it an open window, tuck it under the car seat… put it anywhere you’d love the scent.
