Locals I Love – Lavender Valley Farm

I love Instagram. Not only is it fun to share my misadventures from a visual perspective, but I also find great suggestions for places to eat, RV parks to stay in and things to see.  It was while I was perusing a PNW tag that I came across a photo from a lavender farm in the Mt.

By the end of our first week, I was very interested about this farm so I reached out to them to see if they were amenable to a visit and interview. You see I was extremely curious about these farms … [Read more...]
