Located in East Marion New York, Lavender by the Bay has been growing the highest quality lavender on Long Island for more than 15 years. We offer seasonal fresh cut bunches, dried lavender, lavender plants, lavender sachets and crafts, and honey from our own beehives. In 2002, we expanded our company by purchasing 17 acres of farmland in East Marion, New York. We have planted twenty varieties of lavender across ten acres of farmland, yielding over 80,000 plants for cultivation. In order to preserve the beauty, form, and peaceful nature of the farm, we must now impose a per person (12 years and older) fee to enter the fields while the flowers are in bloom. This fee goes towards the upkeep and maintenance of the plants, trails, and pavilion. The fee is $8 per person to enter the fields on weekends and national holidays, of which $1 will be donated to a local charity. During the week, the fee is reduced to $5 per person to encourage customers to enjoy the fields during less busy times. The lavender is typically in bloom mid/late June through mid-July, but is ultimately up to Mother Nature.

It is a sea of lavender! Not that far from NYC. You can spend couple of ours there and enjoy the scenery and take pictures. There is a small cute shop that you can buy dried lavender and hand made postcards!

Basically a retail venue (especially when the lavender is finished blooming) but like a very small patch of Provence on Long Island. Shop is home to All Things Lavender. Not cheap by any means, but worth a visit. Is evidently the largest lavender farm on...More

My wife and I stopped by late in the afternoon. Our late August visit fell between the July harvesting of the French lavender and the soon to be harvested English lavender. Both were wonderful.

It can get a little crowded in June/July, but the lavender fields are just beautiful! Bring your camera and have a fun time!
