Grown Right Here
We planted the first lavender here at Los Poblanos in 1999 on land that was the headquarters for the historic Los Poblanos Ranch. Organic lavender farming enables us to further our preservation mission by balancing our rich agricultural history with environmental concerns such as water conservation and soil structure. Our farmers’ focus is on hybrid lavender Grosso, specific to our unique North Valley climate and soils. We use a steam distillation process right on the farm to extract the essential oil and ensure absolute purity. The oil then goes into the line of artisan products that we sell right here at The Farm Shop to offer our customers a deeply relaxing experience directly connected to the land itself.
For more than a decade, Los Poblanos has used a steam distillation process to extract organic lavender essential oil for its body care products. The distillation equipment separates the essential oils form the flower water, known as hydrosol and is the second product created in the steam distillation process.
