Teton View Lavender Farm
Husband and wife team of Tom and Linda Howell first got addicted to lavender when Tom lived in Provence. Now, living near the Snake River in Idaho, the pair grow more than 2500 plants of many different varieties of lavender. Offering culinary and and hybrid versions of the plant, they make soaps, spices, salts, scrubs and honeys. Like the old school version, grab some to stick in a vase and add a lovely scent to your home.
The pair, often donning the color themselves, are at the market each Saturday. Their farm in Saint Anthony is also open to the public through the end of September. Find out more here.
