Don't expect a slick roadside attraction here. This is a small family run farm...it is all authentic. Driving up to the place feels like you are visiting a neighbor, rather than an attraction. Apparently, there is only a handful of places in the U.S. where luffas are grown (most luffas are imported) Our guide was "Joseph" who was very knowledgeable about Luffas, since he is the one in charge of growing them. There is no charge for the tour.
The tour consists of Joseph taking you into the greenhouses where the Luffas are grown. He explains their growing habits and also explains why his domestic grown luffas are far better than the stiff imported ones.
They also grow lavender (Joseph provides an example of the differences between English and French lavender).
There is a small gift shop filled with products made at the farm. One can purchase luffas or some of the many different types of soaps that they also make. All the products look great and we bought quite a few.
Before going, check the hours of operation...I believe they are only open four days a week.
