The Farm business began in 1972 commencing the planting of fields of lavender as America’s Original Lavender Farm – Historic Bonny Doon Farm – on property adjacent to the beautiful forest that eventually became the Bonny Doon Ecological Reserve.
Many varieties of lavender are grown including the Farm’s very own cultivar, Ma’s variety “Freda”, named after Diane Meehan’s mother, her greatest inspiration.
Bonny Doon Farm produces many products from other pure botanical oils found around the world, all purchased from reputable and responsible fair trade sources. Be assured that every product from Bonny Doon Farm is guaranteed to please and to deliver true value without compromise. This is our pledge. Our formulas are exclusive to Bonny Doon Farm and all are made in California, USA, Made America.
Recycling is nothing new here. We always collect used boxes, peanuts and packaging from around town on our deliveries. We reduce, reuse and recycle daily in the business and in our personal lives, nothing new here… we always have !
