The lady owner was very helpful with me buying the products that would be best to use for my needs. A lovely selection of lavender based products. Just a short drive out of Kaikoura with lovely views looking back over sea.

Called in to have a browse. Ended up meeting the amazing family that run this gorgeous establishment and spending a couple of hours chatting and relaxing. What a great experience. A must see if you are heading to Kaikoura.

This lavender farm is a low-key pleasant place to wander around. In addition to some small lavender fields, there are sheep and chickens in an enclosure. A small gift shop sells lavender-themed items. We spent awhile drinking lavender tea, enjoying the peace and quiet.

Hi! I'm going to Kaikoura in mid May. I think there is no more flowers by then. What else can we get to see or buy? Thanks!

They have a sweet little gift shop where you can also have scones and tea. They have quite a few lavender and non-lavender themed items and the woman who runs the place is very nice and interesting to talk with. If you... More
