Trust me, it isn't hard to find Lavender Fields Farm but if your unfamiliar with the area it could be a little confusing.  Cool Spring Road runs north and south across Route 9, unfortunately, many visitors turn north onto the wrong side of Cool Spring Road.  If your like me, give me a landmark and I can find my way to the moon.  Sadly, Route 9 is lacking in decent landmarks other than the train tracks and a faded piece of purple fabric that when travelling at 50 mph are easily missed.    
Well, miss us no more!  Look what the D.O.T put up last week!!  
Now, whether you travel east or west on Route 9 you will definately be able to see our new blue and purple signs with the Lavender Fields Farm logo. It's been a long time coming but they're finally here.  Hopefully, you will be too!

Bats, Birds, Bees and Butterflies!

Welcome to Betty's Backyard! 
When you come for a visit to Lavender Fields Farm you absolutely must stop and say hello to Betty.  Betty's Backyard is new to Lavender Fields Farm and has been a huge hit with nature lovers of all kinds.  Like the sign says, Betty caters to the backyard nature enthusiast.  Looking for bird seed, well Betty offers a wide array of Wild bird seed that has been specifically blended for Northeastern birds.  Betty has made it very easy for the home enthusiast to attrack all types of bird into the backyard with custom-built bird houses (built locally right here in Sussex County, Delaware). If your interested in   attracting butterflies, bees or hummingbirds, Betty also sells many decorative feeders for our smaller winged friends.     
Hi Betty!

A quick peak into Betty's store.  Betty sells an assortment of specialty gifts and decor for the garden and home.  If you have a group of 5 or more friends, make sure to sign-up for one of Betty's popular Backyard Birding Lectures
