Visit our farm for a mini lavender workshop. We will take you on a lavender sensory journey where you will learn about the origins of lavender, discover the therapeutic benefits of pure oil, and delight in the flavour sensations when used as a culinary herb.

The day will include an introduction to the farm and tour of the lavender fields, and then we will take you through how lavender can satisfy the five senses. You will also go home with some samples so you can keep igniting those senses.

About Chin Chin Farm

Located in the charming countryside of Riddells Creek, the Chin Chin Farm Gate Shop sells lavender, honey and bushfood products.

When our family moved from suburban Melbourne to rural Chintin in the East of the Macedon Ranges, we were almost immediately rewarded by seeing our efforts to improve the previously unmanaged land transform into flourishing forests, along with increased diversity of the pastures.

Chin Chin Farm is a mixed farming enterprise with a philosophy that begins by looking after the soil and remediating the land. The resulting lush grass and adjoining native forests work in harmony, ensuring that everything grown on the farm is enhanced with flavour from the ground up.

Our growing flock of Australian White Sheep enjoys the feed that grows from the improved soil prepared for over 15,000 food-grade lavender plants, which in turn, along with the native bushland, nourishes our healthy apiary of honey bees. We are complementing our award winning Lavender Essential Oil by also growing a variety of Australian native bushfoods to cook and distill.
