Lauren’s Lavender Farm
Welcome to Lauren’s Lavender Farm, located just 15kms outside Taumarunui. Our Lavender Farm lies adjacent to the famous Whanganui River and offers magical, peaceful tranquil surroundings of lavender fields, farmland and bush.
Lauren’s Lavender Farm was established in 1999 by family members Lorraine, Scott and Ross who purchased a property with the intent of establishing a lavender farm. With the help of a much-loved daughter and father, our family got to work and set about making a dream come true. In 2001, tragedy struck our family with the loss of a much-loved daughter, sister
and niece. Her name was Lauren, and we have named our Lavender Farm after Lauren and her memory.
As time went on, we decided to convert our old farmhouse and make-shift horse stables into a cafe and shop for customers to purchase our lavender products. We decided to paint some of the walls off white and all the other walls are the original varnished walls from the original farm house. We added a very large deck on the front and side; the floor of the cafe is in blue and green tiles and the shop floor is the original varnished floor boards.
We all helped in the renovations with Scott doing the painting and staining with help from our youngest daughter Kasey. Ross and Scott helped with the building of the deck and Lorraine kept the team spirits high with her lovely meals that fed the family through many long nights of hard work.
As well as our beautiful lavender, we also offer food and drinks in our cafe, and lavender products in our store. We are open from the end of October until the middle of May, from 9am to 4pm. Please email or call us for more details.
