The Pizza Verde Philosophy:
At Piazza Verde we pride ourselves in producing a range of the exquisite hand made lavender products as well as hand picked herbs and herbal teas and cordials. Our products are inspired by a strong European heritage and draw on many time honoured traditions to deliver pure indulgence.
The lavender is organically grown, hand picked and then steam distilled to produce our award winning essential oil. This essential oil is the base of our range of lavender products: Soaps, Bath Salt, or Shampoos and Conditioners as well as our Hand Cream, Foot Balms and Lip Balms. This range is further complemented with a selection of herbal products chosen for their restorative qualities such as our Calendula Soap and Lip Balm, Rosemary and Olive Oil Soap, Rosemary Shampoo and Conditioner or our Peppermint Foot Balm.
For our herbs and herbal teas, we organically grow, hand pick and air dry a selection of herbs. These are blended to create our exquisite herbal tea mixtures, drawing on a rich European tea drinking tradition. A delight for both the younger generation as well as the traditional tea connoisseur. Similarly, our cooking herbs bring a rich European flavour into your kitchen, especially our Herbes de Provence which combines the best of our herbs and lavender in a traditional French spice mix.
To this we have added, and are actively expanding, a range of refreshing Lavender Cordials. Our cordials are produced with our very own high quality Lavender, and are a very special summer refreshment.
The Piazza Verde Lavender & Herb Farm is located in the tranquil hill-country of the Manawatu, 3km before the Apiti township, and an enjoyable drive from Palmerston North. Although still in the process of expansion, our farm already enjoys a healthy lavender plantation, as well as a collection of herbs, all set in the rugged, rural beauty of rural New Zealand.
The Piazza Verde Lavender & Herb Farm is open to visitors by appointment.
