Love the smell of lavender? Why not take it home with you. The Ozarks is home to a handful of lavender fields perfect for picking your own home-grown lavender. Besides just smelling beautiful, lavender can be used in different ways such as making your own potpourri, candles, soaps, perfumes, scent bags, essential oils and lotions. You can add a bit of dried lavender on top of your yogurt or salads, or just place it in a vase in your room.

If you’ve taken an interest in lavender, check out these farms in the Ozarks that grow and sell lavender, and a few that let you pick your own bundles.

Note: Hours may vary, we recommend calling before visiting.
