ORGANIC FARMING AT HIGHLAND SPRINGS RANCH & INN
There was a time when genetically modified foods, cancer-causing pesticides, and animals artificially bolstered with steroids were unheard of. If you were a Southern California farmer in 1860s, you were up at the crack of dawn each morning and often taking what you harvested that same day to the nearest town market. You were limited by the terrain and often unforgiving climate, yet somehow the land was bountiful with peaches, apples, alfalfa, and olives. Dairy cows and chicken coups were an essential part of every homestead. No one needed to ask about free range or grass-fed. We at 123 Farm start from the guiding principle that the health of the consumer is our #1 priority. If the seeds are not certified organic, we won't plant them. If our fruit trees require a toxic pesticide to save them from blight, we'd rather take the loss than compromise our standards. While some farms focus on meeting the minimum government standards for being organic, our goal is to eliminate anything potentially harmful from the food you eat. From our farm to your table, see for yourself where your food is coming from.

UNIQUE GIFTS FROM THE FARM
The products at 123 Farm are made primarily using organic ingredients from our farm. We hand harvest and distill our own lavender essential oil in the summer, and press oil from our century-old olive groves in the fall. We practice bee guardianship and sustainably harvest honey and beeswax from our own hives. Our products are made in small batches and are available online or at our rustic farm-themed shops called "The Organic Galleries".
