This is my go-to spot for gifts. I have sent luffas to friends and family locally and in Europe. I use them as well. There is nothing like a natural luffa. Order online if you're not in the area.

We live in Nipomo about 1 mile down a country road from "the Luffa Farm". Who knew Luffa's grow on vines like zucchini? They have a short, but informative tour on how they are grown, a small store with all home made products, from luffas to soaps, herbal wraps, etc and picnic tables where you can sit and enjoy your...

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
