It's a unusual activity to do while in Goa. They explain the cultivation of spices, and show you around an area of the plantation. You can buy spices and essential oils from their shop, which are all very reasonably priced.
Lunch is included in the entry ticket price. The food is aromatic and tasty.
Definitely worth a visit.

Really lovely experience. The visit starts with a short tour around a designated portion of the farm, where the guide talks about the different types of plants and spices they have growing there. The guide (ours was Cyril) gave lots of little tips on what to look for when buying spices, as well as pointing out the medicinal properties of the different plants he would show us.

You can also have lunch at the farm itself, and the food is really good- very fresh and well made. The highlight of the experience for me was the spices they sold. Their vanilla beans were really really good quality, and the other spices were fantastic also.

Sahakari Spice farm was a wonderful experience, starting with a warming welcome drink, followed by an hour long tour through different spice trees and bushes and vines. Followed by a traditional Goan lunch. A very nice experience.

For those who live in small towns/villages & have greenery around, visit to the spice farm doesn't make sense. For those who live in the cities & don't get to see much greenery, this is a must do. It's also a great place for children to see & learn few things about spices & spice plants. It's a 200-acre privately owned property & we are taken on a 30-min walk where multiple spices have been grown within 1 acre of land. These spices are supplied to factories who produce masala & other food items.

The entry fee is INR500 per person which includes lunch & tour guide service. Even if you don't want to have lunch, you still have to pay the full amount. You either choose to complete the tour, then have lunch or the other way round. Tour guides can speak English, Hindi & Konkani. They have good knowledge of the plants.

My family & I visited various temples of South Goa in the morning, then headed to Sahakari Spice Farm for lunch at 2:00 pm followed by the spice farm tour. The Farm closes at 4:00 pm. Do carry umbrellas if you are visiting during monsoon, as the farm doesn't provide them.

This is a very interesting tour do you understand vegetations behind the spices that make up our every day lives. We had an excellent guide, Francis, who spoke both English and Russian and vividly explained many of the spices that we take for granted in our daily life. This is a very educational and fun excursion. And once the tour is ended you were treated to a very local meal in their cafeteria style dining area. Definitely recommend it you are in the Goa area.

Lucy was absolutely fantastic - we had a great time walking around the spice plantation and trying all the spices and smelling the different leaves, etc.

The food was absolutely fantastic and was great to have after not having home cooked food for a few days.

Would highly recommend visiting this quaint location as a relaxing escape from the city.

Would rate this place just about average, the tour of spice plants and walk about was close to 20 min or so. Not as extensive as I imagined. The place was packed even though I had gone on a off day, must be crazy on busy days. Staff is helpful, though I agree with some other reviewers that it ain't worth 400 bucks even with the food thrown in and is probably running basis hype from tour operators. Ride to this part of goa is good and probably you can catch up other places around also.
