A WORKING FARM
Wānaka Lavender Farm is our diverse farm. Native plants & deciduous trees have been positioned around the boundary and borders of our farmed lavender fields, and the many herb & perennial gardens. The landscape created has been a wonderful home to our resident farm animals and more importantly, to our beautiful birds & bees.
Enjoy your visit and embrace the experience of our farm.
We had a vision, how can we make 30 acres of bare land with only a handful of beautiful old trees into a thriving farm of lavender & life?
We planted. We planted everything; thousands of lavenders, thousands of natives, many flowering perennials, herbs & trees, as well as the food crops for our families. Every year we add new farm elements to each special season as it has been wonderful to welcome the birdlife & bees that accompany our growth on the land.
As our vegetation grew, a farm building was designed and built to allow our guests the opportunity to experience the extracts of our farm life. The building is home to our tea room, honey tasting, production facilities and lavender farm shop.
Our doors opened on November 1st 2014 to share our Wānaka Lavender Farm experience with our guests from our local community as well as visitors abroad for each of our distinctive seasons.
What started as two brothers taking inspiration from their parents, Wānaka Lavender Farm has evolved into a farm where the family could grow, work and play within the Wanaka community.
As ongoing learners, we continue to strive to keep the environment in balance with our productive farm. We aspire to make positive changes as we become educated to improve our daily workings on the farm.
The farm endeavours to keep sharing genuine experiences with the community and all our guests who visit.
