Fields of lavender
Coyote Crossing Lavender Farm opened its fields to the public June 27 and 28 for its second annual Farm Days.
"You know, with the effects of the pandemic, we weren't sure if we would be able to share our little farm with the community," farm owner Lisa Kobielsky wrote in an email. "When we chose to move ahead, we knew we wanted to follow the recommendations to keep our guests and ourselves as safe and comfortable as possible. So, we made some adjustments and provided guidance and accommodations and kept our fingers crossed. Would anyone want to venture out to visit? We were so pleased that they did!"
Kobielsky said they had a great weekend with the sales of U-cut and precut bouquets, and they sold out of many items including the lavender lemonade, lavender soap and essential oils. This year they also added original works from local artists, which was very popular with the guests at the farm.
Coyote Crossing partners with Lines for Life and New Avenue for Youth to honor the memory of the son of a family friend who lost his life to a drug overdose. A percentage of the money raised from T-shirts designed by Kate Kobielsky and produced by New Avenue's Ink Youth Workforce Program for youth-at-risk goes back to New Avenue's Ink youth program.
Coyote Crossing is planning to open its lavender fields for U-cut later this summer.
