After seeing it all over my Instagram feed, I obviously had to pay a visit to Terre Bleu Lavender Farm (#basic lol).
Flower farms have been all the rage on Instagram nowadays!
Terre Bleu is the largest lavender farm in Ontario, and they’re located an hour out of the city in Milton.
The farm has over 40,000 lavender plants that bloom at different times during the season, and they’re committed to sustainable farming!
Since we went on a Sunday morning, traffic was pretty light and it was a nice drive.
I wanted to arrive as early as possible, and we got there around a half hour after opening.
It was already starting to get a bit busy, but we were able to shoot some photos and enjoy walking around the fields before the crowds came along.
Soon enough, it got pretty crowded!
Here’s how to spend a day at Terre Bleu Lavender Farm in Milton, Ontario.
Tips for visiting Terre Bleu Lavender Farm
How much are tickets to Terre Bleu Lavender Farm?
Admission during low season (early June and last week of August) is $10 on both weekdays and weekends.
Admission during high season (end of June to end of August) is $17 on weekdays and $30 on weekends.
When is the best time to visit Terre Bleu Lavender Farm?
I would definitely visit during low season for two reasons: it’s a lot cheaper, and it’ll be a lot less busy.
We visited towards the end of high season and had to wait in line to both enter and take photos inside.
How far is Terre Bleu Lavender Farm from Toronto?
The drive from Toronto to Milton is just under an hour, and you can easily make a day trip out of it.
Including all the time we spent waiting in lines, I think we spent just under 2 hours at the farm.
Off to the lavender fields
The lavenders were so pretty and they smelled wonderful.
If you’re afraid of bees, I wouldn’t recommend you going too close to the plants, because they were literally everywhere.
It was a little scary at first, but we got used to them buzzing around.
You can actually hear the sounds of the constant buzzing if you listen closely enough!
I decided to wear a dainty outfit to go with the pretty lavenders.
I got this little white summer dress from American Eagle (similar here) probably about 7 years ago, and I still love it!
I’m all for timeless pieces that never really go out of style.
I went for an all-white and casual look with my fave pair of Chucks.
The Terre Bleu farm has two different fields of lavender.
The further one has this cute yellow door right in the middle of it, clearly destined to be on your Instagram feed.
There are so many cute photo opps here at the lavender farm!
Bring home lavender-themed souvenirs
You can also take home some cool souvenirs from Terre Bleu’s gift shop.
Everything is made with lavender or lavender-themed, including bath and body products and infused food products.
They also have an amazing lavender ice cream, which I’d say is probably one of the best ice cream flavours I’ve ever tried.
I wish they sold it in tubs to take home!
If you haven’t already been, Terre Bleu Lavender Farm should definitely be on your summer bucket list!
The lavender fields are a gorgeous sight to see, and you can get some beautiful photos here.
