Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: Nestled in the hills of South Kelowna against a backdrop of sweeping lake and valley views lies Okanagan Lavender & Herb Farm, a working family farm that has become a garden-inspired tourism destination. 18 different aromatic herbs and plants, including over 60 varieties of lavender, are grown, harvested, dried and distilled on-site for use in the hand-crafted botanical products that fill the farm boutique and online store. Launched as the Okanagan’s first Economusee site, visitors are invited to discover the traditional craft of essential oil and hydrosol distillation done on the farm. Three acres of garden are also open seasonally for guided and self-guided tours, with winding pathways, a cedar hedge maze, whimsical sculptures, water features and herb and xeriscape gardens. We invite you to come and entice your senses from May through December, with lavender at its peak in July. Events and workshops are offered throughout the season (please check website for more details).

Awesome wonderful place. I would like to own one.
Spent too much money, but I was saving for awhile.
Maybe the map and directions could be better with more signage as it took us 2 trys to find the farm.

"Thank you dad" was what my daughter mentioned to me several times for taking her to this enchanting and relaxing place. One can spend an hour to three hours at this place and come away from it absolutely relaxed with the site and smells of lavenders. While she tried her hands on creating an artistic object from lavender stems, I relaxed with a cup of coffee and a lavender scone at their restaurant overlooking the garden and the distant lake and mountains. A nice trip!

I have been to lavender farms in the south of France and though this is a smaller scale operation, it is still very much worth visiting. Excellent staff, shop and "tea-shop" type patio with a stunning view.

This is a charming, romantic farm/garden to walk through. So many different types of lavender and various flowers. There is a small fee you have to pay if you want to walk through the gardens.

Staff were super friendly and helpful. You could even pick your own lavender!

It was very hot on the July day and was glad I had brought my hat to enjoy the gardens to the fullest extent! I enjoyed taking pictures of the bees in the garden and the beautiful back drop of Kelowna. We also had a chance to enjoy the lavender ice cream and lemonade on the porch and enjoy the shade and scenery.

They also have a shop inside where lavender soap/tea may be purchased along with various items containing lavender.

Super fun time!

Stopped for a fast visit but ended up staying for a lavender lemonade and strawberry shortcake on the patio. Lovely.
