Willow Pond Farm

All Willow Pond Farm’s plants and gardens are cultivated in strict adherence to organic standards. For the past several years, the Wajda family has focused increasingly on lavender. More than three acres of plants thrive in the lavender fields with more planted each year. Tom Wajda propagates more than 100 varieties of lavender — including three exclusive varieties — and a number of unique and unusual herb and perennial plants. Madeline Wajda has developed a devoted following of food lovers with more than 30 kinds of herb and flower jellies, 20 herbal vinegars, and 12 varieties of herbal flavored honey, all using the farm’s certified organic herbs. Popular items include lavender jelly and honey, basil garlic vinegar, and lemon verbena honey. Every June – during Father’s Day Weekend – Willow Pond Farm is home to the Pennsylvania Lavender Festival, one of the region’s most unique events.
