Lockwood Lavender Farm, Skaneateles

There is no need to go all the way to Provence, France to find beautiful lavender fields.  When researching Skaneateles Lake, NY I was thrilled to find a lavender farm in the same town I was traveling to in search of the Perfect Build Your Own Bloody Mary.  Luckily it happened to be their final weekend of the 2018 season.  Lockwood Lavender Farm is a 5th generation family owned farm, the great place for a photo shoot and the perfect place to just chill.

The smell of fresh lavender and the buzz of bees (just as chill as you are)  surrounds you.
