Rooney Upton, Margaret and their son James (the official taste tester) have been farming lavender on the cliff tops at Maslins Beach since 1999. Growing 15 different varieties of lavender, the farm specialises in low-camphor plants which are most suitable for eating.

Cooking with lavender is quite experimental and Rooney and James work together in the kitchen to trial different recipes. The development of their renowned lavender brownies took over a year.
