Sorry, our farm is closed to the public.

Little Sky Farm began in 1985 as a small orchard of 18 apple and pear trees. Located in a valley in the Santa Cruz Mountains north of Boulder Creek, California, our three acre farm grows under a little patch of sky ringed with redwood, douglas fir, live oak, tan oak, and madrone trees backed by Santa Cruz mountain ridges.

In 2004, we started a crop of unique seed-sown English lavender, Lavandula angustifolia, in an effort to produce a lavender suitable for cooking. The seeds came from four distinct stocks, including one from the Provence region of France. In 2005, approximately 1000 plants were put into the ground. 

This special seed-sown crop is what sets Little Sky's lavender apart from the cloned varieties used for making soaps, lotions, etc. A variety of cultivars have been developed to maximize the production of lavender oil. Unfortunately, maximizing oil content does not translate into an herb suitable for cooking.

Our natural, genetically diverse seed-grown crop is lighter, sweeter, and much better suited to the spice rack than most lavender currently available.

 In 2007, we expanded the farm to include a variety of naturally grown heirloom tomatoes, decorative flowers, and herbs including basil, tarragon, mint, thyme, lemon verbena, lemon thyme, chives, savory, and Greek oregano. Our heirloom tomatoes continue to be popular with local restaurant chefs and markets. Each year, we continue to expand and diversify Little Sky Farm with more quality plant varieties for the kitchen.
