Pick Your Own Lavender


PYO Lavender

Lavender picking is finished for 2018, come back next year.

Lavender Abbey is famous for its PYO Lavender event, visitors come from all over New Zealand to enjoy the lavender.

Come, relax and enjoy picking lavender in sunny Carterton. Immerse your senses in all that's lavender. 

Every year in January, for the past 7 years, we've hosted a Pick Your Own Lavender event at our Dalefield Road property in Carterton. It’s a ‘don’t miss’ summer weekend event. We throw open the gates of our lifestyle property to give you a chance to pick your own lavender, when the crop is at its best.

Come and view our lavender growing wild and enjoy a few hours in the sun adoring the incredible aroma.

Our next pick your own lavender days will be in 2019.  Come back here to check dates or see our facebook page closer to the time.  There is a gold coin entry fee and lavender picking is $5 per bunch.  EFTPOS available.  

If unsure about the weather give us a ring first to check.
