  • Very interested with the concept of farm and homemade shops here. Lavender has always be a calm aromatics fragrance. This place gave us new experience about farming in a cold country. Not very easy do...  more »

  • We visited the Lavender Farm early June, unfortunately no lavender to see at this time but during other seasons I would imagine it would be so much better and would love to go again then. It had a del...  more »

  • I love lavender, so when I discovered this lavender farm, I was in heaven! There is a $2 entrance fee to explore the gardens, which I highly recommend. I came just as they lavender was being harvested, so I did not get to see the rows of purple fields, but you could smell the freshly cut lavender throughout the grounds and it was absolutely sublime! There were beautiful flower gardens as well as a vegetable patch and some nicely shaded sitting areas in the gardens. There were also animals, but I didn’t get to see any of them as there was a school field trip that was occupying their attention. There is a great café/gift shop that is just perfectly purple! They have teas, cakes, cookies, and ice cream, all infused w/lavender and honey from their hives on premise. I literally had one of everything! The lavender tea was great, especially w/the beautiful cake. The little purple tea pot and cute tea cup the tea was served in was such a nice little touch. The lavender and honey ice cream was delicious as were the lavender cookies. The gift shop has so many options, but I love that they make all sorts of lavender infused personal care items. I bought some “gardener’s hand cream” that I am in love with because not only is the smell amazing, but it is some of the best hand lotion I have ever used! You pay a premium price, but you get a premium product! Definitely recommend stopping in and checking this fantastic place out!
  • Doesn't open during winter time. We were lucky enough to be there during close-to-winter time and yet, the owner is just happened to be there. Thus he let us, and a few more visitors went in. Nice gesture ~ the place is cosy. Good place to buy lavender stuff and manuka honey. The honey is a must buy.
  • Lovely relaxing place for a stop. Small $2 fee to walk through the gardens and see their alpacas and baby lamb. Didn't eat at their cafe as we'd just had breakfast but it's gorgeous, open and airy. Gift shop sells lavender everything (oils, creams, candles) and local NZ products like honeys and crafts.
  • Good for a family visit, children can feed the animals,owners are very friendly and helpful. Lovely lavender and honey products for sale
  • If you want a relaxing stop, with tea and gardens, this is the place. We got to feed the three week old lambs and walk around the lovely gardens. Every year they plant more so every year that goes by there will be more to see!
