“A culinary masterpiece in my own back yard”

Sunshine Herb and Lavender Farm
Ranked #18 of 40 things to do in Sequim
Attraction details
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Sure, I live close by, which means, I have the ability to wander through ALL of the farms anytime I want. There are, I guess, nice things about most if not all of the farms...they all have lavender! However, not all of'um have Carmen! Oh, you'll know her when you walk into the store, which will drive you right out of your mind...if it ain't there, Carmen'll make it, or you don't need it! Being a retired Master Chef, her culinary section is a grown up "toy store!" It's the storehouse of tastes good! Carmen will spend as much time as you need, making sure the right culinary lavender that SHE creates right there, is what you need. The young men who seem to be everyplace at once, are her boys...it figures! They're great too. The Lavender...well, I think the only thing that separates Sunshine from France, is language! From Seattle, it's on Highway 101 just about 1/4 mile on the left after you cross out of Jefferson County. The big red barn and meticulously kept grounds, tell ya to come on in, have some outrageous coffee, wander around the store, go out and wander about, ask the boys about the plants, and just make yourself at home. Oh, the lemon-lavender shortbread cookies really go good with coffee. Oh, one last thing...they oughta outlaw the hand cream...it's that good. I feel like I'm being pampered each time I use it. It's the first farm...in more ways than one!!

I'm fairly new to this area and wanted to learn more about lavender so stopped at the Sunshine Herb and Lavender Farm. I ended up volunteering at the 2012 Festival to sell plants and learned more than I thought possible to learn about lavender. I then started using some of the men's products as I have a sensitive face and now will use nothing but her products. I also have arthritis and started using her deep penetrating lavender muscle jell. It's one of the best products of its kind on the market. I rate Carmen and the Farm very high.

This farm is a beautiful spot to visit. It is marvelously maintained all year long. The over 900 products sold in the gift shop are made on site by the owner using the lavender grown on the farm. They make their own essential oils, soaps, creams, shampoos, bath salts, etc. as well as culinary products such as jams, syrups, rubs, spice blends, mustards and salad dressings while also offering a small portion of locally made products like cards, bird houses, t-shirts and some of the candles. They also offer locally made lavender ice cream. The staff is always busy making more products to sell to anyone that is smart enough to stop and buy them. The products are hypo-allergenic and as close to nature as you can get. They grow over 65 different varieties of plants to sell to the pubic. This is an awesome farm with wonderful staff to help you select just what you want for personal use or for that special someone that will be totally surprised by the great selection of products in the gift shop.

Not only is this farm picturesque and beautifully maintained, the products produced here are the best! Natural, organic, healing and soothing, they are a wonderful substitute for today's overabundance of chemically infused personal care products. The owner is very knowledgeable and is always researching the next best thing.

My favorite place to wander, unwind, learn about herbs and lavender, eat ice cream and have coffee.

Great scenic and restful stop off Hwy 101. Tour the grounds and take photos and smell the lavender. Lots of different garden settings to sit and enjoy. Great store with over 900 Lavender product from home to beauty to food. Friendly and helpful staff.
