Looking for something different to do? Try heading to a lavender farm in Remsen

Lots more to do at a local lavender farm than just pick a bouquet of lavender.

Remsen, N.Y. - If you're looking for something to do this holiday weekend, and maybe something you've never done before, you can head to Spring Creek Lavender in Remsen.

It's a lavender farm where you can pick your own lavender from a variety of the plants the family has grown.

You can also pick other flowers on the farm, interact with the animals on the farm, and even take a goat yoga class.

Owners Kara and Kevin Keely decided to open a lavender farm after getting involved with creating the flower arrangements for a relative's wedding a few years ago, and they really just fell in love with flowers, and in particular, lavender.

Kara says that relative's wedding is where this farm idea stems from, "The whole family came over and we just made bouquets for her wedding and that was essentially the kick off. Started researching lavender and cut flowers, and this is just kind of what came from it."

Kevin Keely says it's taken three-plus years to get to this point, "It’s a beautiful location behind us and we started planting the plants three years ago. They take about three years to get to maturity and this year we’re finally able to open up for You-Pick."

You-Pick tickets are required for Saturday and Sundays. You can purchase advance sale tickets for particular weekend days on the farm's website at https://www.springcreeklavenderny.com/

Tickets are $8.00 and that gets you one bouquet of U-Pick Lavender.

Spring Creek Lavender is located at 8879 Trenton Falls Prospect Road.
