Quick and informative tour. The small gift shop sells lots of luffa and other hand-made goods -- soaps, lotions.

Luffa crop coming in.

Luffa Farm

It's a farm which produces luffas, "Nature's sponges" (Well, aside from actual natural sponges). Provides free tours as well as paid, catered tours.

[Phil S., 08/14/2011]

"One of the only growers of luffa sponges in the USA that offers tours to the public" -- the farm grows about 6,000 luffas each year, eager to exfoliate. July 2012: Photo added.
