Famed for our high quality oil
Every summer, the lavender field is full of bumble bees and butterflies and when the sun shines you can imagine being in Provence!
Nestled in the South Downs, Lordington Lavender was established in 2002 by local farmer Andrew Elms. After selling his dairy herd he was looking for a new way to diversify and decided that Lavender would be a unique and exciting alternative.
Andrew’s love for nature has very much been passed down to the next generations: Alex & Vicky continue to actively promote and protect the health and success of the countryside and its wildlife, while the grandchildren find endless delight in the gorgeous great outdoors!
The lavender crop is grown with conservation of habitat and the environment very much in mind. No fertilizers or pesticides are used and it has become a haven for wildlife with at least 12 red listed species of birds including skylarks and barn owls found on the farm. At a time when bees and butterflies are sadly in decline, the lavender field in summer is alive with humming and fluttering – heaven!
