Local Farm Celebrates a Milestone

Updated:
FORT SCOTT, KANSAS -

A local farm celebrates seasonal  success with a festival for the community.

The Lavender Patch Farm in Fort Scott held it's first ever lavender festival. 

It featured live music, food and games, tours, and people could pick their own lavender to use to make wreaths for decoration, to keep bugs away, or keep around for its pleasant smell. 

The event served as a celebration for the farm.. one that's been eight years in the making. 

Davin Reichard, the Owner of the Lavender Patch Farm:"Milestone would be a good word cause this is the first event like this that we've had. We've worked many years to get to this point where we had enough lavender that stayed alive through the winter, and that was blooming that we could have a nice field for people to come out and enjoy. So yes, we're excited about it and hope people enjoy it and come back again."

The Lavender Patch Farm hopes to start holding the event every year.
