Tours at Lewis Bamboo

We would love to have you come out and visit our 60 acre waterfront farm located in Oakman, AL. Appointments are required and directions will be provided. If you visit, you can pick your own plants and many larger divisions are available. There is a $200 min. purchase of plants asked of visitors but you do gain a wealth of knowledge and a wonderful experience.Over one mile of pathways are located through out the groves. There are many sitting areas and plenty of chairs, free cold drinks, free souvenir bamboo staffs and rest room facilities are provided.We enjoy you visiting and will always try to make time for tours. Typically, a member of our family will be with you during the visit. We will answer all your questions and show you through the bamboo groves. Visits have to be made by appointments due to the amount of time required to tour our groves and purchase bamboo. Appointments are made Monday through Saturday, 9 am to 4 pm to select and pick up bamboo. Some exceptions can be made for appointments after 12 noon on Sundays. On average each visit to our bamboo farm will last from 2 to 3 hours and is concluded with us preparing your bamboo for your trip home.We will make sure that your bamboo is properly loaded and protected for your ride home. Whether it is a trailer full and just a few small divisions, we will be happy to help you. We will load all your bamboo and protect it from wind for the journey home. We wrap larger orders in plastic to prevent wind damage. Smaller containers can just ride within the vehicle if there is room.Below you can see some large three gallon size plants being loaded. If you pick-up three gallon size plants you can usually get larger ones that cannot be shipped mail order. Some of our packing methods occasionally entails employees getting closed insides doors. 

Here are some large bamboo orders that are wrapped and ready for travel, pictured with happy customers.


There is no minimum for online purchases, so if you wish to purchase a small order it may be best to have it shipped.Our nursery and farm are growing grounds and not a garden center.
