Lavender Fields was initially planted in 1995 by Jim Curnow, when he was 64. This makes
it one of the earliest lavender farms in New Zealand. Angustifolia, Stoechas, and X Intermedia
were planted, with propagation and oil production in mind.
Jim’s daughter, Clare, and her husband Kevin have been involved
for much of this time, more extensively since 2010.
The still was commissioned in 1998. Clare has been manufacturing
her “Declare” range of products since 2011. These products all include Lavender Fields’
essential oils, and other carefully sourced oils and natural ingredients. No animal products,
parabens, sulphates or petro-chemicals are used.
Jim, played an active role in Lavender Fields, especially in the
distillation of the quality award winning essential oils, until he passed away aged 92 November the 19th 2014.
Clare and Kevin are carrying on Jim’s legacy, running the farm
and distilling the highest quality oils.
