This was our first time touring a vanilla farm and it was very informative. We visited it while on a 4WD tour which also included Champon Pearl Farm. We picked up some vanilla pods that we are looking forward to use.

Interesting talk and demonstration on how vanilla is grown and processed. Here flowers need to be hand pollinated. Many vanilla product to purchase and we purchased the vanilla cream which help wounds heal and worked very good on some coral scratches.
