Located in Fitch Bay, 'Bleu Lavande', is the largest lavender farm in Canada and the only Canadian lavender farm with international certification. With over 100,000 lavender plants and surrounded by gorgeous landscapes, this is the ideal day trip for Montréalers.
|The lavender attracts a lot of butterflies and bees. Especially bees. They didn't seem to have any interest in people (whew)|
Bleu Lavande has picnic tables set up, a restaurant, tours with explanations of lavender processes and a lovely shop with every lavender product you can imagine (including lavender honey). We bought two small bouquets of lavender to take home but.......first.......
|Lots and lots and lots of lavender!|
Next trip we'll skip Newport (which was pretty, but on the sad side - restaurants for rent, shops gone or closed, and few people). Not worth losing our lavender!
