Hi, our names are Julie & Bernie, we own Alphra Lavenders, the trading name for Alphra Kelsey Ltd.
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 Pacific Blue in early December, our main Grosso & Super 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 purity, 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
