Akaroa Organics

About us

Our organically grown products are produced on the side of an extinct volcano overlooking the tranquil waters at the head of Akaroa Harbour. The seaside village of Akaroa is 10 minutes’ drive away, with Christchurch being just an hour's drive away. The stunning outlook down over Akaroa Harbour and around the cliffs of the former volcano, and the various micro climates, are dominating first impressions.

The property is now a place of forest hues, sky blue and sea green. Established in 1989 the property is just under 50 acres or 20 hectares. Originally consisting of just four bare paddocks, there are now over 25,000 trees planted, native bush remnants fenced, a predator programme and an eco-source planting programme implemented. Around 1/3 of the property is under high value timber production, 1/3 is retired from grazing and the final 1/3 continues to be grazed or is in commercial production of crops.

We currently produce:

Pacific Blue essential oil

Grosso essential oil

Lavender hydrosol (either Pacific Blue or Grosso)

Lavender soap
