Luffa is an international crop revered in many countries, it offers several health benefits including skin exfoliation, sinus treatments, and shingle treatments. Every part of the plant can be used, making Luffa an economic resource worldwide. It is also known as Loofa, Loofah, Esponja (Mexico), Estropajo (Columbia), Icyangwe (Rwanda), Memwa (South America), Hechima (Japan), Gilki/Ram Tori and Sebot (India), Si Gua Luo (China) and Luffaschwamm (Germany). Cats, Rabbits, and Chinchillas love Luffa. In fact, our cat RB started playing with the Luffa, so we started designing cat toys. In 2005 we began selling the cat toys in local shops. We named our company LUV A LUFFA and appointed RB as the CEO (Cat Executive Officer and Product Developer).
Through our journey, we have learned of the wonderful benefits Luffa has for bees. Luffa will flower all the way up to the first frost so it is an important food source for bees especially during late Summer and Fall when flower sources can be scarce. The beekeeper we partner with produces fantastic honey, creamed honey, soaps and more.
Goats also love to eat Luffa, it is a great food source for them. We raise Lamancha Dairy Goats and they truly enjoy the Luffa. The luffa is a fantastic source to help keep our goats healthy and hydrated. We use the goat milk to produce dog treats, soaps and more. We named the treats after our beloved goat Chatty. Chatty’s Gourmet Dog Treats are nutritious and dogs love them! We are a licensed Commercial Feed Manufacturer.
