Amandine Lavender sign on a rock on the property, a small family owned and operated lavender farm near Bargara. A gift shop has many lavender gifts, including locally made products

Amandine Lavender is a small family owned and operated the lavender farm near Bargara. Originally a third generation sugarcane farm, it was changed to introduce an alternative industry to the sugarcane. It is a boutique farm, growing lavender to supply the onsite gift shop. It grows a range of lavender varieties, predominately Grey French Lavender (Lavandula Dentata var. Candicans).

You can wander around the grounds amongst the lavender, have a look in the gazebo, and venture into the gift shop. The gazebo has some information about growing lavender, and some recipes to cook with lavender, and a lavender bicycle leaning against the post adds to the charm.

Inside the gift shop, you will find just about everything lavender you can think of. Candles, tea sets, oils, creams, tea towels, soaps, teddy bears, potpourri, and many other things, with a lot of them locally made. What I found interesting was the lavender flavoured edibles, also locally made. I hadn’t thought of lavender to be a flavour. Lavender jelly (condiment), lavender honey, lavender lollies, lavender fudge, lavender chocolate… and the lavender mascarpone gelato was very refreshing on a hot day.

To cook with lavender you need to use a particular species of lavender, you can’t use any type of lavender. If you want to have a go cooking the recipes displayed in the gazebo, Amandine Lavender sells culinary lavender.

The staff were friendly and helpful and answered my newbie questions about growing lavender.
