Emu Bay Lavender’s humble story began in 2001 where a small lavender garden was first planted.
19 years later, The farm now runs over 51 acres of land and has an estimate of 7500 lavender plants including 12 different varieties of Lavandula angustifolia and Lavandula intermedia. the property is owned by a 5th generation kangaroo island family who strive to create the best experience for each and every guest.
During summer the lavender flowers are in full bloom and we begin harvesting. Kangaroo Islands famous Ligurian bees are busy pollinating the flowers and begin producing our signature lavender honey. We hand harvest and strip around 8000 bunches per year and currently distil around 8 kilograms of essential oil which is used in all our handmade therapeutic products. It takes about 100 kilograms of flowers to produce just one kilogram of oil. Emu Bay Lavender is continually expanding and working to improve and increase the farms efficiency + sustainability.
