  • We visited on May 9, 2022. We started with a delightful luncheon (reservations required) in which we were treated to dishes using many of the delicious products available in their shop. It was nice to see different ways vanilla can be utilized, and nice to be able to bring some of the products home with us. Food was plentiful and delish. The tour was our big interest and it did not disappoint. We were led by Ian, one of the four brothers who run the farm, who was so knowledgeable. He provided great info on the entire operation and helped us appreciate how difficult it is to raise vanilla plants, pollinate them, and turn them into products for us. We have started our own vanilla extract with the beans purchased....can't wait until we can use it in our cooking! Highly recommend: This is a fun and informative tour, and the luncheon was a good experience for us as well.
  • The lunch and Tour was excellent. From the greeting at the door until we were leaving the staff was friendly and helpful. The lunch was very tasty and served in a covered garden area. We then went on tour to see the plants and hear how the process of raising vanilla happens. So happy my wife found this hidden gem.
