Spend some time at our alpine lavender farm

The lavender farm is a great place to stop and relax with wonderful flavours of ice cream to enjoy. There is the opportunity to walk or sit in the rows of fresh lavender growing at the farm. It’s truly a unique experience well worth your time to stop.

On your way to Mt. Cook

Strong winds, fierce sunshine, snow and ice, colourful autumns and crispy cool days make up the volatile climate, and are some of the reasons New Zealand Alpine Lavender™ is so potent and unique.

Fresh lavender ice cream

Take a rest and enjoy our fresh lavender ice cream & picturesque farm view. We have a variety of flavours like Lavender Vanilla, Lavender Blueberry and Lavender Mango.

Lavender shop

At our gift shop, we offer lavender-based products like skin care products, certified organic oils, fragrances and more. You can also find these on our online shop.


Looking for a place to stay nearby? Situated on the same property as our lavender farm, relax and take in the breathtaking vista of the Mackenzie high country when you stay in our private holiday house or cottage at Pukaki Lakeside Getaway.
