Lavender Bee Farm
746 Chapman Ln, Petaluma, CA 94952
At Lavender Bee Farm, “Both JoAnn and I are Petaluma locals, We have had interests in gardening projects for many years. We decided to grow lavender as a hobby and now there is so much interest from local people and businesses that the lavender farm has grown to over five thousand plants, with plans for more! The Lavender Bee Farm was established in 2001 on our family farm just on the outskirts of Petaluma (located in the beautiful Sonoma County).
Our growing method is all natural, no pesticides or fertilizers. The cutting and pruning are performed with hand tools. The soil is sandy loam, the plants have good drainage, watering is a drip system. We have many bee hives here at the farm that collects the sweet lavender nectar. Lavender honey is prized for its color and taste. The honey sells out quickly!”

Monte-Bellaria di California
3518 Bloomfield Rd, Sebastopol, CA 95472
Monte-Bellaria di California – The name Monte-Bellaria is derivative of the Italian for “mountain of beautiful air.” We chose this name due to the afternoon foggy winds that blow in from the Northern California coast, cleansing the air and sweeping into the valley and lavender fields below.
Monte-Bellaria’s lavender plantings are the most commonly grown varietal in France. Our lavender is a hybrid of English Lavender and Portuguese Lavender, called a “Lavendin.” We grow a mix of the two most common hybrids: Grosso and Provence.
Monte-Bellaria Extra Virgin Olive Oil is our own all-natural, cold pressed and unfiltered oil. Pressed within 24 hours and within 2 miles of the olive grove at Olive Leaf Hills Mill using their Italian-made Rapanelli press. This is a premium green oil, picked young for a rich and peppery flavor.
We are stewards of the most prolific pollinators on the planet. We harvest only the products of the bees’ work that are not necessary for the colony to thrive: bees’ wax and a modest amount of honey.”
