Lavender By The Bay, East Marion

Must see · Farm · Tourist Spot
Located on the North Fork of Long Island, Lavender by the Bay, a family owned farm has been growing the highest quality lavender for over 20 years. We offer seasonal fresh cut English and French lavender bunches, dried lavender, lavender plants, lavender sachets, body products 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 15 acres of farmland, yielding over 100,000 plants for cultivation. The lavender is typically in bloom mid/late June through mid-July, but is ultimately up to Mother Nature.

In order to preserve the beauty, form, and peaceful nature of the farm, there is a fee (12 years and older) 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.

When the lavender is in bloom and is being harvested we offer U-pick bunches (Mon-Thur 9AM-11:30 AM) and will gladly supply you with a basket and a sickle (or a pair of scissors for children). Please call to confirm upick is available before your visit.

  • The smell is nice and the lavender was in full bloom. I have to be honest, $12 a person which way too overpriced! it is true that that is nothing else to do except taking the photo. By the way...  more »
  • Ridiculously overpriced, with nothing to do other than take pictures. Went all the way there from the City, and all the admission fee allows you is to set foot on the fields. No additional decor, no.....  more »
  • It was a bucket list item for years and I’m glad I finally had the chance to visit during the blooming period. There’s a small entrance fee for a unique experience. The shop carries all sorts of lavender products including fresh cut bunches of lavender. For any lavender lovers, it’s a soothing treat.
  • Instagram worthy. Beautiful and fragrant. I visited and spent an hour walking through the fields. It is smaller than expected but it's beautiful nevertheless. One should experience walking through the rows of lavender and do take pictures. My husband and I enjoyed every moment. We purchased a bunch of fresh cut stems. The items are on the expensive can side but it's worth it. There were a lot of people in the field but they were concentrated in the near areas. I would definitely make the trip next year and I'm hoping that the weather would be kinder to the bloom.
