Bonny Doon Farm
Bonny Doon Farm in Santa Cruz is one of my favorite spots. I toured the estate several years ago and was swept away by the fields and fields of hazy purple. My eyes weren’t playing tricks on me, Bonny Doon is a lavender farm. Although sun loving lavender is their specialty, owners Gary and Diane Meehan have also created an intriguing shade garden where the design principle of mystery predominates.
Bonny Doon Farm is not open to the public but you can purchase heavenly scented soaps and candles made at the farm on their website www.bonnydoonfarm.com.
