Some Frequently Asked Questions include:
Q: What happens if I choose to "walk-in" instead of booking online?A: On Saturday and Sunday unscheduled visitors may be turned away. Weekend parking slots for pre-booked online tickets will be prioritized. Conditions of the parking lot and remaining slots available will be evaluated by date. Those without bookings will be offered an adjusted "walk-in weekend' admission rate. Weekday visitors are still encouraged to book, but will be accepted if vacancy permits.
Q: What happens if it rains at the time of my booking?A: Kelso Lavender Farm operates rain or shine- we do not offer refunds or rebooking due to rain.
Q: How long can I stay? Why has the maximum time decreased?A: Our farm offers a maximum stay of 1 1/2 hours. The decrease is due to our parking lot's traffic (the parking process and guests who wait in the car). We hope you understand.
Q: I'm running late/early? Can I still come in?A: Timed tickets are available for the time slot that guests have purchased. If guests are late, they will only receive the remaining time in the slot. Those who are more than 30 minutes early will be asked to return to the premises closer to their booking and the maximum limit of 1 1/2 hours will still be enforced.
Q: Can I host an event at the farm?A: Our farm is not a location that is able to accommodate externally planned events. Please contact us if there are any inquiries so we can discuss.
Q: I bought a Halton/Park/Membership/Etc. pass, can I use it here?A: Kelso Lavender Farm is independently owned- these passes are not applicable. Admission will still be charged.
Q: Do you have any bathrooms?A: Yes, we have two portable restrooms on our farm- we are sorry to say they are not accessibility friendly. We ask that those who use our facilities read and understand the posted signs and respect the space.
Q: Why are there different admission prices at different times?A: Our farm offers a reduced rate during our off seasons- when less lavender is in bloom. Usually the last week of June and the first week of August.
Q: Can I bring my dog?A: Unfortunately we do not permit dogs on our field. Guests are encouraged to leave them at home with a treat or someone to watch them. Guests may not leave their dogs in the car.
Q: Can I have lunch here?A: Kelso Lavender Farm kindly asks that guests do not bring meals to eat on the farm. Our shop has soft drinks and water, as well as ice pops and ice cream at select times.
Our farm is open from June 23rd until August 6th.
Please book your visit through our online booking system which will be available soon.
We grow a variety of English and French varieties of lavender. For English we sell Royal Velvet, Folgate, Super Blue, and Melissa. For French, we sell Phenomenal and Grosso. Please refer to our dried lavender collection on our online store to see how the different varieties look when they're dried!
Unfortunately, visitors are not permitted to pick their own lavender when they enter the farm. This is to maintain the health of the plants and ensure the lavender looks beautiful to all our visitors.
If you are looking for fresh lavender bundles, we have freshly harvested lavender bouquets every morning during harvest season which will be available for sale.
Lavender blooms mainly between late June to late July or first week of August.
We have several lavender that species bloom on a rolling basis throughout July, which means that with any visit there will be some lavender that will be in their peak bloom and some that will not be in their peak bloom. That said, the time when most of the English lavender is in peak bloom is late June/early July. Whereas, most French lavenders are at their peak in mid-July to beginning of August. Please refer to our Instagram page if you want current updates on how the fields look!
Please refer to our "Photography" tab on the main menu of our website where you can see our photography policy and select a time to book for your clients.
For full field access for special occasions please email us before booking.
Personal photos are totally fine and always encouraged. However, any professional photography requires a permit whether it's during our opening hours or for an after-hours exclusive photoshoot. During our opening hours, professional photography is defined as any kind of photography that uses reflectors, disruptive props (e.g. balloons, tents, furniture), tripods, or other lighting equipment.
We take all major credit cards as well as debit (Interac Flash) and cash.
