It’s amazing how manual the processing of nutmeg is! The tour was short but very informative and reasonably priced. An interesting stop on our tour!

We had no idea about the processing of nutmeg, so this was very enlightening. It's also very interesting that the process couldn't be automated at all (even in small pieces) - or they have chosen NOT to automate. It was nice to be taken through...More

This tour is well worth the US$1 entry fee. You see all stages of processing nutmeg, from the sorting to the drying and packaging. As others have noted, there is no automation, but the plant provides employment for many local people. Informative and worthwhile.

A very interesting, but short, tour of the largest nutmeg processing facility in Grenada. Learned about how nutmegs are grown and processed and saw the process in action. Not exciting, but a good view of a major local industry and export crop.

Old facility and not much to see. The whole tour took about 10 minutes. Small souvenir shop accepts US dollars. We probably expected something larger and contemporary, so we are dissapointed...
