We grow lavender and process it into products which we sell online and at markets. You can check us out on facebook we are under Nannup Lavender and Time Travel Tours and Transport.

    We show travellers the local wildlife which is mostly nocturnal, we visit the forest to learn about trees and wildflowers, farms to learn about agriculture. We enjoy chatting and explaining how and why we do things. If we have a market workawayers can come and enjoy the event.

August to November is weeding and mulching, using the brushcutter, trimming etc December and January we pick and dry the flowers. January to March we stripping and sieving lavender.
