Finger Lakes Lavender Festival 2015

Lockwood Lavender Farm will kick off the 8th Annual Finger Lakes Lavender Festival on Saturday, July 11th & Sunday, July 12th!  Located at Lockwood Lavender Farm, 1682 West Lake Road, Skaneateles, NY this free admission 2 day event will be from 9am to 5pm.

•Stroll through fragrant fields.

•Harvest your own bouquet of fresh lavender.

•Enjoy culinary delights and the work of local artists and hand-crafters.

 •Attend presentations from featured speakers and so much more.      

 

            With just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of city life, the Lavender Festival is a perfect day in the country.  Not only is this event a celebration of all the wonders of lavender, but also an event that knits together local, talented artisans.  The festival offers outstanding photographic opportunities throughout the grounds and at the presentations.

 

Lockwood Farm is a 120 acre family owned farm tucked in the beautiful hills of Skaneateles overlooking Skaneateles Lake. We grow 20 varieties of lavender and offer “U-Pick” during the summer.  Lovely soap, lotions, creams, aromatherapy products and honey for your purchase. We are excited to be developing our farm for the enjoyment of our guests.

 

Festival activities occur outdoors rain or shine.  Dress casually to ensure your comfort.  Lockwood Farm is a working farm with unpaved pathways. It is accessible, but there is uneven terrain on the grounds and in the fields.

 

Directions to Lockwood Farm:  From the village of Skaneateles take Kane Road/41A.  Continue south on West Lake Road/41A 8 miles.  Past the hamlet of Mandana, we are the first farm past fire lane 50 on the left hand side.

In the 1960s, Cambridge University student and future physicist Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne) falls in love with fellow collegian Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones). At 21, Hawking learns that he has motor neuron disease. Despite this — and with Jane at his side — he begins an ambitious study of time, of which he has very little left, according to his doctor. He and Jane defy terrible odds and break new ground in the fields of medicine and science, achieving more than either could hope to imagine.
