Martha Lane Lavender Farm: Lavender in Bloom into August, September
Sequim has become a very popular place to grow lavender, and Martha Lane Lavender is a self-pick lavender farm, with a wide selection of types available. The variety of plants means that the lavender here is in bloom all the way into late August, and possibly even September depending on the weather that particular year.
The facility isn't huge, but is extremely popular, and during the annual lavender festival you can expect this to be one of the crowded places. However, during August you can also find a fair amount of lavender in bloom here, but with very few visitors it is possible to meet the members of the family that own the place.
It is typically open on weekends, but plans are in the works for the farm to be open for visitors longer hours in the near future.
What to buy: Here you can purchase a buncle of laveder plants that you have picked yourself for $5.
At one time the plants here are hand made into soap, oils, and a number of other products that are for sale in a small store on the farm grounds. Today, however, a new house sits on the grounds with the bottom floor being partly devoted to the lavender store.
You will also find food related products, such as lavender-infused honey.
The farm and their shop does have a web site, but the number of products displayed on their web site is only a small fraction of what you will find in their store.
During the lavender festival you can find lavender ice cream cones for sale here, as well as lavender infused lemonade. During the "off-season" you will probably not find anyone serving the ice cream but quite possibly you will find some of it for sale. Call or contact them before you come and they may have some available for you.

Lost Mountain Lavender: A Wide Assortment of Lavender Products
While the farm grows its own lavender, and creates a wide number of lavender products, there is no you-pick part of this lavender farm.
Unlike Martha Lane Lavender, there isn't a wide variety of lavender here either, which means that by August you can expect most of the lavender to be gone, with the exception of a small section of the farm that is set aside as the experimental growing area.
If you go into the store, take a careful look at some of the "tables": there are two of them that are very interesting antique wood stoves.
What to buy: Lavender soaps and a huge assortment of other products are available here.
