Keys Creek Lavender Farm, the only certified organic lavender farm in San Diego County, is nestled in the foothills of the Palomar Mountain Range. The Farm is owned and operated by Alicia Wolff, a South African Native. She discovered the Lavender Farm (formally the Lavender Fields) and felt an instant connection to the land. Her background is in marketing and networking. Her passions are her children, community service, cooking and paintings. Keys Creek Lavender Farm carefully hand harvests their lavender and distills it to make over 75 products for sale in the Farm Store and on line. They are also in numerous Farmer's Market's in San Diego County. Guests love to walk the Living Labyrinth and sit in the Meditation Garden. The energy of the Farm brings a deep feeling of serenity and calm coupled with the sweet fragrance of lavender.

Tell us about Keys Creek Farm...

This year we as always are supporting the Honey Bee Colony Collapse. In recent years the honey bee populations across the continent have plummeted as much as 70%. The biggest reason is insecticides. Insecticides are used to protect crops from invasive insects, but also kill many other insects, including our precious honey bees. The homing abilities of the worker bees are paralyzed and they cannot find their hive, thus leaving the queen bee to starve. Organic farming is the best possible solution to this problem. Organic farmers use natural treatments including the use of insects that feed on pests. Please help us support our efforts to end the honey bee colony collapse. Plant lavender plants or use our products. For every product sold, we donate a portion of those proceeds to build a new lavender filed for out bees to thrive.
