If you love luffas and have old hippie tendencies, then this is the place for you! A funky place, but easily accessible from Willow Road. We drove in, surveyed the place from the car and drove out.

Since I had no idea that luffas came from a plant, I was extremely curious after reading about The Luffa Farm in Westways magazine. It did not disappoint. The tour was fun and informative. And their tiny gift shop is filled with self-care treasures. My sister even purchased hostess gifts to take on another trip. Since I'm a newsletter publisher,... More

We read about the Luffa Farm in Westways magazine and since we were wine-tasting in the area, we decided to check it out. I'd recommend using a GPS since the road to the farm would be easy to miss. The small parking area was full--something they may need to solve if more people come to visit. We managed to park... More

Definitely a great place to visit! The owner gave us a tour and told us all about loofahs and their benefits! She even gave us a lesson about different herbs in the garden and what they are good for! A must visit! I'm going back soon to see how much they've grown in a few weeks!!!

This was such a fun stop and such a unique place to visit. I'm so glad we made time for it! Family owned small luffa farm with cute little gift shop. The gentleman that gave our tour was very kind and answered any questions we had.

This is fun and interesting. The friendly family owners will show what a luffa is, pre-market, how it grows and various uses. They explain why an American grown luffa is better then one grown in foreign countries. You will have the opportunity, at the end of the tour, to purchase luffas and some other nice gifts, including specialty soaps. I... More

We were met in the parking lot by our friendly guide. We toured the grounds and one of the hot houses. Lots of information about the cultivation and processing of luffas. There is a small gift shop that sells luffas, soaps, creams and other items. This tour is free.

What an unexpected treat this was! My family is from Central America so growing up I knew about Luffas (although they had a completely different name). So to my surprise, this Luffa Farm was around the corner from where we were staying at in Nipomo. I didn't even know what a Luffa was, until I looked it up. Curious about... More

We live in the area and passed this place many times. We finally took the plunge and stopped. The proprietress took us on an informal tour of the greenhouse and explained the history of her operation and how the luffa are grown. This property also includes a "medicinal" herb garden and a small shop selling some of the products grown... More

We went to visit the luffa farm after driving by once and then being sent back by a local. It was pretty cool to see that they grow on a vine like a squash or something. The luffas themselves were a bit expensive, about $9 for an eight inch luffa, or smaller ones in little bags for $6. I of... More
