Come See Us!
The Fairhope Tea Plantation is a working farm rather isolated out in a rural area. It sits on a dead end road, Lyter Lane, and is surrounded by large areas of woodlands, wet lands and agricultural fields. We welcome folks to come by, but like for visitors to call first. Donnie and his wife are not morning people so afternoon visits are best.
We do not have our processing equipment set up all the time but keep such in the barn and set it up as needed. We will gladly show you around the farm and show you what steps in the tea processing we are doing at the time.
We always have tea on hand to sell. We make large batches of green and black tea that we will sell you when you visit. Our 7 oz bags of loose leaf tea are $15. Our cup size teabags (30 count) are $10, green or black tea. We do not send tea out in the mail mostly because Donnie does not like to pack it up and make a trip to the Post Office. That may change someday, but right now we are not taking orders over the telephone or email.
