The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Gardening in Bucks County


3. What to Do

Lavender is harvested for fresh and dry arrangements and for Carousel’s oils and soaps.   

Follow the aroma of 15,000 organic lavender plants to Carousel Farm in Mechanicsville. Stop by on Saturdays to buy a plant or lavender-and-goat's-milk soap. Pick a pumpkin and sample fourteen varieties of home-grown apples (sun crisps, cameos) at Manoff Market Gardens in Solebury (closed Sundays). Call Betsy Jacobs (610-847-8452) to see what herb workshops (cooking, decorating) are scheduled at her Tinicum Herb Barn in Erwinna.
