This is a great tour for kids and those interested in agriculture. Not fancy, but very informative. The staff is great.

We paid a 2nd visit to the luffa farm as a result of our first visit. We had such a great time the 1st time we had to go again a year later. The tour is beyond informative, its fascinating to see the various stages of the luffa from blossoming squash to drying out and peeling to reveal a natural... More

I Love Luffa Farm. I found it so simple yet so wonderful I cannot wait to go back. I learned so much. Not only about Luffa (definitely things I didn't know) to things about many herbs. I would totally recommend!!

The Luffa Farm is worth the side trip off the 101 freeway near Nipomo. This is a family business and they love what they do. You learn why their luffas are soft while the imports are harsh to the skin. They offer a variety of luffa sizes, bath teas, fizzies and other assorted neat gifts. Be sure to take the... More

Very neat little farm. Jeffrey was a energetic and informative tour guide. Like many others, I had no clue that luffas grow on vines ! The folks at the farm grow all kinds of herbs - not just the luffas - and make soaps and other bath products, etc.there on the premises (sans all the usual chemicals your get in... More

I have visited the Luffa Farm on two occasions. They were welcoming and very knowledgable of their products. The luffas are far superior to those sold in stores. They last for years! I also enjoy the lavender face mask I purchased, it was made with lavender grown at the farm it's great for stress relief. One of my visits was... More

When you see the Luffa farm signs and not sure as you drive up...It turns into a fascinating mini tour of a farm actually growing Luffas. Who knew that Luffas are a plant... I always assumed they were manufactured in Mexico or China. Its worth the side trip to see this gem.

We have passed the signs along the road several times. Decided to visit when grandchildren came. What a little hidden gem in Nipomo! It is a small family run farm, and YES they give free tours. We all were intrigued with the way luffas grow. The gentleman that gave the tour made it fun and interesting. They have a small... More
