While we have loved visiting sunflowers in New Jersey, we realized that there are other floral experiences in the garden state. Known for so many health benefits, lavender was a favorite scent of the original blue eyes himself Frank Sinatra, and it really does have a lovely rich scent. From cooking to therapeutic purposes, lavender is appreciated across many cultures. Whether you want to enjoy a new experience, photograph a unique moment, or appreciate New Jersey farms, there are quite a few lavender farms in our state. Here are a few we have compiled!
