Lavender Fields at Warrington Manor
(Milton,DE)A trip to Lavender Fields Farm is all you need if you long to wander through blooming rows of purple lavender, enjoy the beauty of this sweet smelling herb, pick your own bouquet of flowers, rest under the shade of a tree, and experience all the flavors, fragrances and healing qualities of this amazing purple flower. You can cut your own flowers in the fields, check out the quaint cottage store which offers everything from potted plants to scented soaps or attend one of a dozen demonstrations on lavenders many uses in the farms restored nineteenth century barn. The stores ambience with its delicious smells, soft music, homespun displays and warm lighting provides a warm, welcoming, folksy, not over-powering atmosphere, where a person can feel comfortable lingering a while and trying out the products. The historic five-acre property, located on Cool Springs Road near the intersection of Martin and Fisher Roads, is all that remains of a large tract of land deeded to the Warrington family in 1776. The old farmhouse, built over the foundation of a previous dwelling, dates from the 1890s and is being beautifully restored. The quaint cottage store and greenhouse were completed in the spring of 2004 and the old barn and milk house are slated for final restoration in the fall of 2005. Everything is done by hand from planting to harvesting, to hanging the lavender in bundles to dry and creating value added products from the flowers in their workshop.
