Lavender Madness in June

Get back to nature at Mad Lavender Farm as it opens for its eighth year of goat yoga, hands-on workshops, and “pick your own” lavender. 

The lavender fields are in full, glorious bloom from mid-June through the first week of July. Pick Your Own Lavender is offered by reservation only, so book your appointment early through the website. Visitors can also enjoy an array of lavender products such as bath and body products, soap, honey, candles, and cookies in their tiny shop.

The farm also hosts a private picnic area (by reservation only) perfect for gathering with family and friends. For a truly unforgettable day, add a Mini Make & Take Workshop, a Sound Bath Session, or a private Goat Yoga Party.

In addition to workshops in crafting lavender wands and wreaths, they offer workshops in herbology, self-care, and their latest workshop in Mushroom Cultivation which teaches participants how to grow their own gourmet mushrooms at home. 

Location: 452 County Road 579, Milford, NJ. Shop hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Friday-Sunday. For additional information visit

5 Top Tips to Finding Your Next Doctor

1 Keep an Open Mind! Healthcare has come a long way. Today, you have access to practitioners that branch outside of traditional medicine and aim to identify the root causes of conditions while using alternative treatments that may help you get the relief you need. Just because it’s not a pill, doesn’t make it pseudoscience.

2 Build Your Health Care Team. There is no one doctor that can be the be-all-end-all for your health needs. Be sure to have a team of practitioners with different “lenses” and areas of expertise who will treat the root cause and not just the symptom(s).

3   Environment Influences Healing. Health is multi-factorial. Your mental and emotional environment plays a pivotal role in your healing potential. Your doctors and their staff should create an office atmosphere filled with positivity so you can get the most out of your care.

4 Your Story Matters.  Before you begin any treatment, be sure to have a comprehensive consultation to discuss your health concerns. Find practitioners who welcome questions and will take the time to listen and treat you with respect.

5 Report of Findings. When it comes to our health, we often make decisions without understanding the risk versus benefits. Knowledge is an important part of the healing process and is essential to make conscious, informed health decisions. Find practitioners who take the time to explain their exam findings and the recommendations for treatment in ways that make sense to you.
