Lavender Hill was purchased by Jason and Trisha Delamore in November 2015. They had seen the property a few years earlier and it had remained in their minds as a unique opportunity to develop a working lifestyle block, a unique tourism experience, and quality accommodation in Auckland and a great environment for their children.
The main house on the property is a 1970s Ian Burrows designed home. Jason and Trisha have renovated the house to create a stunning family home.
Lavender Hill is a tourism destination, hosting hundreds of visitors every summer. They have a range of lavender products for sale online and at the farm shop. In recent years Jason and Trish have expanded into a range of award-winning gins. They started with a stunning Lavender Gin and have expanded the range to include Saffron Gin, Smoked Honey Gin, Sloe Gin and a gorgeous Limoncello
The farm includes sheep, friendly Alpacas a terrace with over 20 different variety of lavender, olive groove and 500 manuka plants that will be used for processing Manuka Oil
Lavender Hill also has a fully compliant steam still which is available for processing lavender oil, tea tree oil and other plants suitable for steam distillation.
