In todays hi tech world, age old hand craft is what you get at this place. Very much labour intensive, its an interesting way to spend 45 mins. Well worth the entrance fee

Visited the main processing plant (of three) on west coast north of St George's - as part of Island tour. Guided tour very interesting though difficult to follow on occasion. Processes mainly carried out by hand and hence labour intensive - much unemployment so little incentive to mechanise. Friendly and allowed to take photographs despite signs saying you can't. Ask...

Nice to see nutmeg processing - very much a rough and ready set up but with friendly and informative staff and gift shop for related products.

Did a visit as part of a Sunsation's Tutti Frutti Tour. Very interesting and a must see. You are in and out in less than an Hour. Last Nutmeg Processing Factory left on the Island since the 2004 Hurricane drove the other 3 out of business. Nutmeg trees recovering and starting to get back to normal in 2015. This Nutmeg... More

We spent about 15 minutes here, very quick tour but quite informative. There are thousands upon thousands of nutmeg nuts in this factory and the tour operator is nice and patient and informative.

Visited as part of our day tour around the island. Very interesting stop, to see how hard these people work for so little wages. Makes you appreciate there way of life & culture.

We toured the Nutmeg plant in Grenada and we were so happy we stopped. You could sense the pride in the tour guides voice as they showed us around. The tour does not take long and is very interesting. We are so spoiled with our technology. A must see.

We visited as part of an 8-hour island tour. We were taken around by a worker, who explained the process. It was really interesting to see such an old-fashioned operation and I walked out feeling like I had learnt something. The drying hall truly was impressive. We were permitted to take a couple of photos in one area only. I... More

This tour felt like stepping back in time. Very labour intensive process. We were able to see the nutmeg being dried in a beautiful old building. The tour took about 30 mins and was thoroughly enjoyed by our party which included teenagers and young children. Tour price US$1

We toured the coco and nutmeg factories and found it quite interesting. It was like stepping into the past, it is a very labor intensive work and these people are very proud of it. You get right into how these spices are grown and processed. It is hard to imagine where nutmeg cinnamon cloves bay leaves and coco come from... More
