Pelindaba Lavender

Pelindaba Lavender Farm is ideal in every way. Set on twenty-acres in the center of the island, it's name means "Place of Great Gatherings". It's been featured as a cover article in "Better Homes & Gardens" and was listed as one of 50 top places to visit in the USA by "In Style" magazine. They pride themselves in being a premier grower of lavender plants, distiller of lavender essential oils, and handcrafter of lavender-based products. Environmental standards and aesthetic beauty are important to them. From growing to product development and sales, they have created a vertically integrated model of sustainable agriculture that enables them to preserve farmland from further development, to protect it from pollution, to create employment for fellow islanders, and to provide a lovely destination for islanders and visitors. They are truly welcoming and this is one of the nicest lavender farms I have ever visited. Their products are of excellent quality and are elegantly presented in beautiful packaging.
