Hi, our names are Julie & Bernie, we own Alphra Lavenders, the trading name for Alphra Kelsey Ltd, which was incorporated in March 2017. However, the Farm started back in 1997 when the original owners, Beverley & Ian Parlane decided their lifetime passion about the significant health benefits which lavender contributes to life quality had to be shared with as many people as possible, we are therefore delighted to follow in Ian and Bev’s footsteps to continue this wonderful business.
We grow a number of varieties of lavender of which three varieties (Grosso, Pacific Blue & Super) are grown for commercial production of essential oil of lavender and a fourth variety (Impress Purple) which we grow for dried lavender & rubbings.
During flowering our lavender fields look wonderful, offering a vista of different colours of lavender.
Lavender flowers commence with our early variety in early December, our main fields will fully flower from mid December through to late January when we harvest for lavender oil distillation.
We are proud to harvest and distil our oil at the Farm, our distillery is only used to extract Lavender oils so we can maintain the purety, once we collect our distilled oil we then mature the oil for over a year before we bottle for sale or use in the creation of our products
The traditional role of lavender and natural healing powers in helping people to maintain a balance in their lives have been a key concern of Alphra Lavender. We have now evolved to become an exciting company trading in the wellness industry, focused on promoting sound body care for all.
