Article content The new perennial site for Bleu Lavande’s lavender farm is set to finally open June 7 in Magog, and Montrealers can finally nab tickets to wander through its floral fields and experience a completely revamped look at one of Canada’s first lavender farms.
An essential oil developer since 2004, Bleu Lavande’s new facilities are a far cry from its previous, more rustic location 20 minutes away in Fitch Bay (word to the wise, that original farm is for sale for $2,495,000).
It’s a modernized farm sporting a central hub that includes a boutique, “discovery spaces” to learn about the company’s history, the distillation process behind their essential oil, and handmade soap creation to accompany the great, sprawling fields of blooming lavender with a kilometre long trail that visitors are encouraged to explore.
Activities at the site vary by season, ranging from a garden area for purchasing plants to a by reservation massage area in July and August to a sachet workshop and product tastings. A travelling bike sells snacks and beverages for the farm’s picnic spots.
Article content The farm has enlisted the help of the experiential multimedia studio Moment Factory known in Montreal for its work on structures like the Jacques Cartier Bridge’s chromatic lights to design an immersive space called Champs Chromatiques. The installation is intended to give visitors a way to experience the fields of lavender year round.
“By combining creativity and multimedia, our teams will create an immersive and interactive space that will allow visitors to experience lavender in a new and engaging way,” Moment Factory’s Eric Fournier said in a statement.
Article content Bleu Lavande is at 2525 Principale St. W. (Route 112) in Magog. Tickets are now on sale at $15 per adult, with visits beginning June 7.
