Our Farm

Lavender Field at Lavender Backyard Garden

Lavender Backyard Garden is a small, family-owned lavender and blueberry farm in Newstead, Hamilton, New Zealand.

Benjamin and Samantha have always loved natural products, and in 2014 they were able to bring this dream. Lavender Backyard Garden lets them share the benefits of nature with their visitors. Tracey, a qualified personal care specialist, leads the team developing their premium collection of skin care products. These lavender products are available in the shop, along with a range of other products that use the natural healing properties of lavender. You will be surprised how many great ways there are to use this beautiful plant in your daily life!

Want something more from your day out? Why not try the world's best super food? Blueberries provide great health benefits, and at Lavender Backyard Garden you can take advantage of them at any time. Pick your own (PYO) succulent fresh blueberries in season, check out our prepacked fresh blueberry punnets in the shop, or make use of our frozen blueberries and use them year-round.

After your've finished investigating our range of great products, fell free to enjoy the selection of coffee and tasty treats. Our premium New Zealand Killinchy Gold ice cream and real fruit blueberry ice cream can be savoured on hot summer days, but it's just as good at any time of year.

Only a 10 minute drive from central Hamilton, a 5 minute drive from future Waikato Expressway Ruakura ramp the Lavender Backyard Garden is open everyday in summer for our visit. Come and see us today!
