Lavender takes center stage at annual festival


Pennsylvania Lavender Festival celebrating 10th year


Gettysburg, Pennsylvania – March 6, 2011


For nearly 10 years, Tom and Madeline Wajda have opened their historic farm near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on Father’s Day Weekend and invited thousands to explore their senses.

Their specialty – lavender. As the Baltimore Sun put it, a “field of purple … lots of it.”

The festival features 75 varieties of lavender, three of which are exclusive to the Wajda’s Willow Pond Farm, in Fairfield, Pa. The farm is certified organic and includes three acres of lavender.

This year, you are invited to join the nearly four thousand people for great food, music, pick-your-own lavender, garden tours and culinary presentations, on June 17-19, 2011. Lavender and other herbs are sold throughout the festival. Also included this year is a cooking contest featuring, what else but lavender.

Tom Wajda calls the festival, “a sensory delight.”

Willow Pond Farm is located just 90 minutes from Washington, D.C.

The Pennsylvania Lavender Festival is truly one of a kind in the Mid-Atlantic Region. The event has been featured in the New York Times, AOL Travel, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Baltimore Sun.
