Did You Know There’s a 100-Acre Lavender Field in Illinois?

Did you know there's a giant farm field in Champaign, where lavender is grown? Don't worry, neither did we, and we write about Illinois treasures all the time.
Sharp's Crossing Lavender Farm in Champaign has been growing lavender for a decade but the farm has been in the family for 100 years. It's a U-Pick farm, which means you can take some of that sweet scent home with you.
There's even a Lavender Festival. This year's event will take place June 14-17, 2019, featuring themed food, drinks and demonstrations.
Sharp's Crossing Lavender Farm is located at 1495 County Road 2300 North in Champaign, Illinois.
Weather can sometime play a major role on the lavender crop, so be sure to call ahead to see if it's a good day for picking. 612-720-0377.
