Hidden Spring Lavender & Alpaca Farm, Montgomery

Somerset County is home to Hidden Spring Lavender & Alpaca Farm located right in Montgomery. It’s easy to get to from Princeton, Bridgewater, and New Brunswick too as it’s located just minutes off of Route 206. Lavender hits its peak season in New Jersey in mid-June and can even last until mid-July with the right conditions. The lavender farm is open on the weekends for you to peruse the fields – and even walk an alpaca! While reservations are not needed for the lavender fields, it is recommended to reserve a time to walk alpacas.
