THE HOME OF 'Pick Your Own Lavender' 

"We exist to educate, inspire and delight"

PYO Lavender

Lavender Abbey is famous for its PYO lavender event.  Visitors from all over New Zealand come to our lavender farm to experience the aroma and beauty of lavender.

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

Every year in January, for the past 10 years, we've hosted a "Pick Your Own Lavender" event at our Dalefield Road property in Carterton, just an hours drive from Wellington. It is 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 and share in our slice of Provence.

Come and view our NZ grown lavender and enjoy a few hours in the sun adoring the incredible aroma.  Bring a picnic, rug, sunglasses, sunhat, umbrella for shade and just relax in the lavender field.

You can also purchase our multi award-winning lavender 100% pure essential oil,  winning Gold & Silver at the NZLGA Supreme Oil Awards 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020, plus our natural handmade lavender products.

Our 2021 lavender oil vintage will be available to purchase, it's a goodie.

Our next 'Pick your own lavender' days will be in January 2022.  Come back to the website or go to our facebook page later in 2021 to see next PYO days.

There is a $2 entry per person and lavender picking is $5 per bunch.  Plenty of parking and wheelchair access.  EFTPOS available.
