About Castle Farm

The Castle Farm Shop overlooks the meadows of the River Darent and our farming policy has ensured that the picturesque quality of the valley’s landscape has been retained. In the summer months, our Lavender fields burst into colour across the Kent landscape and we harvest and extract pure Lavender Oil.  


The Alexander Family have been farming in the Darenth Valley since 1892.Through the years a large variety of crops have been grown including; the Savoy Cabbage, Plums, Lucerne, Parsnips, Marrows, Potatoes and Apples and Hops, which we still grow today.  
The Lavender enterprise began in 1998, to produce essential oils. We are now the largest Lavender farm in the UK growing over 130 acres of the fragrant purple flower

Product Description

Castle Farm’s own beef, apples, apple juice, Kentish hop garlands, dried flowers, pumpkins, Lavender oils, food essences, Lavender teas and honey are all sold through our unique, award-winning farm shop, and online, along with carefully selected gifts, cards, crafts, seasonal decorations, food hampers and local, traceable produce.  
We are the largest producers of Lavender oils in the UK, with a specialised distillery on site, allowing us to extract the precious essential oils within hours of the crop being harvested. 
Our traditional hop gardens have been customised to allow us to grow Hop Bines best suited for interior decoration, with wide rows allowing more sunlight and even flower growth.
