2024 Events

Discover the Magic of Hereward Farms This 2024 Season

Nestled in the heart of Dufferin County, just an hour's drive from the bustling GTA, Hereward Farms offers a serene country escape that's closer than you think. Our 250-acre working farm in East Garafraxa, Ontario, is not just a sight to behold but a vibrant community hub, brimming with life and the sweet scent of lavender.

Our farm is a living tapestry of nature's finest with over 6,000 lavender plants, 200,000 sunflowers, and seasonal crops like hay, corn, soybeans, or wheat. But what truly sets us apart are our beloved lavender varieties - Phenomenal, Munstead, and Hidcote and that we are the only sustainable lavender farm in Ontario. These fields, accessible from June to September, are a testament to our love for these fragrant blooms. And let's not forget our sunflower fields, a golden sea of joy open from July to August.

A Glimpse into Farm Life

At Hereward Farms, we're more than just a farm; we're a family. Our Lavender Lounge + Boutique, open year-round, is a cozy nook where you can experience our commitment to all-natural, farm-to-skin, and farm-to-home products made right here on the farm. And for those who love a hands-on experience, our Cut Your Own Lavender and Sunflowers offer a unique connection to the land (availability permitting).

2024 Events and Workshops

This year, we're thrilled to invite you to a lineup of events and workshops to immerse you in the lavender and sustainable farming world. From our food and wine experiences celebrating the peak bloom season to workshops with amazing local creators and sustainable farming practices, there's something for everyone.

Family and Pet-Friendly Fun

We understand that adventures are best shared with loved ones, including our furry friends. While we ask that dogs remain on a leash and outside the lavender fields, they're more than welcome to join in on the fun across the rest of the property.

Join Us for a Season of Discovery

Hereward Farms is not just a place to visit; it's an unforgettable experience. Whether you're escaping the city for a day, seeking inspiration from nature, or looking to learn something new at our workshops, we're here to welcome you with open arms.

Remember, we grow and make it, and you'll love it. Proudly 100% Canadian and dedicated to sustainable farming, we can't wait to share the beauty of Hereward Farms with you this season.
