The Lavender Way is, as far as we can establish, the only organic lavender farm in Crete. Gill grows several different cultivars although lavandula angustifolia predominates.
No pesticides. No herbicides. No fertilisers. All our stock is strictly home grown. All is planted and harvested by hand, with love.
Planted in concentric circles our crops protect each other. We follow the zen of organic farming promulgated by Masanobu Fukuoka
The Lavender Way ~ where harmony and love care for both the crops and the land.
Lavender Way produces, and offers for sale to discerning customers: essential oils, sachets, gel, spritzers, tea and the odd luxury gift and ship our superior products worldwide
We occasionally allow visits to the farm itself where, if the season is right, you might be allowed to help harvest a bunch or two of lavender.
Use the menu items to the left to find out about life on the farm, to see photos of the bounty, to visit our location via GoogleEarth and, to view/purchase our product offerings
NEWS UPDATE - in February 2009 we made official application to DIO , the Greek certification authority, for organic certification. Our first farm inspection has been completed successfully and our organic plan has been approved.
If all goes well our lavender products will receive full certification in 2011 and our olive production in 2012.
