Add A Little Lavender To Your Holiday

Well it’s getting to holiday season again (hooray!), but what if (for some unknown reason) you’re not heading to Jersey for a visit to our wonderful Jersey Lavender Farm, but are off to climbs further afield? Well fear not, there are plenty of other wonderful lavender farms sited all over the world which you can visit.

Ali’i Kula Lavender Farm, Maui

If you’re lucky enough to be jetting off to the beautiful island of Maui, then why not include a trip to the Ali’i Kula Lavender Farm? This beautiful 13.5 acre lavender farm is set 4000 feet above sea level on the slopes of the Haleakala volcano. Although not native to Maui, lavender absolutely loves the climate (who wouldn’t?!) and thrives so much that it blooms all year round! When visiting the farm it is recommended that you bring some sturdy walking shoes so that you can spend the day wondering around the beautifully manicured farm. You can view some of the 45 different varieties of lavender, along with olive trees, hydrangea and protea, all created and cared for by agricultural artist and horticultural master, Ali’i Chang. Half hour walking tours are offered throughout the day and twice a day you can also book onto a golf buggy tour with Mr Chang himself at the wheel. Why not also pick up a Lavender Gourmet Lunch Basket from the shop and enjoy this in the wonderfully fragranced grounds? Doesn’t sound too bad to us!
