The season’s first bloom of English lavender has arrived at Lavender by the Bay in Calverton.

For $9, visitors can wander through the expansive purple fields and unwind in one of the farm’s many Adirondack chairs.

Lavender by the Bay was founded by the Rozenbaum family in 2002, originally beginning with a 17-acre property in East Marion. In 2018, the family expanded to add 30 acres in Calverton. 

Both English and French varieties of lavender are cultivated at the Calverton location and the flagship farm. English Lavender, most often used for culinary purposes, is the first among the varieties to bloom. Though typically the smallest, the bloom features about 20 different varieties of English Lavender with colors ranging from a pale blue to a deep purple. French lavender blooms in early July, a time when the farm is in peak season and becomes a sea of purple.
