    Hi there! On our search page (, you can click on "show more search options" to find several types of things to search on, such as amenities, food, and activities.

    We don't really have a way that you could narrow the search to a lavender farm, however, if you go up to your url window and type, then a space, then the word lavender, your browser should return an internet search for you. You can do this with any word or phrase if you can't find it on our search page!

    Just one word of caution, sometimes the internet results are out of date. I see that most of the farms that come back in a search for "lavender" are no longer on our site. Mountain Farm is, though, so if you want to go to North Carolina, check them out! ( Carolina/Mountain_Farm)

    Thanks for writing!
