Our Visit to Seven Oaks Lavender Farm

We headed to Seven Oaks Lavender Farm on their first day of the season, June 4. We were pleasantly surprised to find out a few days prior to our visit that they would be having a soft opening. The soft opening is June 4th-June 8th. During the soft opening, admission is FREE.

The drive from Fredericksburg to Catlett was beautiful. When we arrived at the farm, the kids immediately headed to the Bunny Looking Zoo. The farm has 8 rabbits and they are kept in a large enclosed, shaded area just before you head up to the lavender fields. You can’t pick up the bunnies, but you can feed them clover. Boy, do they love clover. I had a hard time pulling my kids away from the bunnies so we could head up to the lavender fields.

This was our first time visiting a lavender field, so we didn’t know what to do. One friendly worker came to the rescue and showed us how to cut lavender. The farm provides sanitized scissors and baskets for picking. She mentioned that they also have other flowers and herbs to cut.

Additionally, she explained that this farm carries two types of lavender–English and French. The English was ready to cut, but the French was not.

After cutting our lavender, the kids wanted to head to the treat tent which housed all the lavender yummies and other lavender goods. We ended up getting some lavender lemonade and a lavender lemon cupcake to split. (They do offer free ice-cold water.)

We were able to hang out on grandma’s porch for awhile and enjoy the beauty. There were several rocking chairs from which to choose.

Then the kids played at the kid-area for a bit. There’s a sandbox, a swing, riding horses, a basketball hoop and ax throwing. They really enjoyed the kid-friendly ax throwing set.

We ended our visit with more bunny looking and feeding.

We really had a great time at Seven Oaks Lavender Farm. Everyone was so friendly. We learned a lot, ate yummy treats, and had some fun. Bonus: The surrounding views were breathtaking.
