Young Living has farms throughout the world
Here are some of the locations:
St. Maries, Idaho, USA
These 200 acres of pristine farmland were purchased by Gary in 1992. The property had never before been plowed or exposed to chemicals, pesticides, or fertilizers of any kind. The soil, climate, and pure air make it an ideal location for crops such as lavender, melissa, and tansy.
Mona, Utah, USA
This farm encompasses nearly 1,600 acres and is home to the largest privately owned essential oil distillery in the world. German chamomile, hyssop, clary sage, golden rod, and lavender are grown for distillation for our world market, and many other crops are grown here for research and display.
Highland Flats, Naples, Idaho, USA
Since 2000 the Highland Flats farm has produced Young Living’s balsam fir, Western red cedar, pine, and Idaho blue spruce oils. This farm is the site of our annual Winter Harvest, where many distributors join us for the hard, but rewarding, work of harvesting and chipping the overgrown balsam fir, Western red cedar, and pine trees and then transporting the chips for distillation in St. Maries. Soon, these oils will be produced on site at the Highland Flats distillery that is currently being constructed. Distributors may also join us for the annual Spring Reforestation project, where thousands of young balsam fir and Idaho blue spruce trees are planted each year to replace the harvested overgrowth and secure our future supply.
Well known for its rolling hills and fields of fragrant lavender, the region of Provence, France, is home to Young Living’s scenic third farm. With help from local partners, this farm produces lavender, rosemary, and clary sage.
Since 2005 Young Living has operated a farm in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Plants that are grown, harvested, and distilled here include eucalyptus blue, dorado azul, zaragosa, lemongrass, rosa morta, oregano, ylang ylang, basil, and many more. The plant material of palo santo, ruta, rosewood, and ocotea is transported to the farm from different areas of Ecuador and Peru for distillation. The Ecuador farm’s state-of-the-art distillery is the largest in South America.
In 2010 Gary started his operation for the extraction of Boswellia sacra, Sacred Frankincense, in Salalah, Oman. Young Living has partnered with local harvesters to secure our supply of this exclusive resin and increase cultivation to meet the growing demand for this precious oil. For the first time in centuries, Boswellia sacra is being distilled in Oman, and Young Living is the first and only company in the world to obtain permission to export this essential oil and bring it into the Western world.
In partnership with a local grower, Young Living has established a farm and distillery in Almog, Israel. This property, located near the Dead Sea, is the site of pioneering botanical research and the source of the 2013 convention-exclusive Micromeria essential oil.
Following two research trips to Taiwan, Gary began an agricultural partnership in 2012 with local doctor Ginn S. Lee to produce Hong Kuai and Xiang Mao essential oils on a scenic property in the Taitung region. These two 2013 convention-exclusive essential oils are some of the rarest in the world and are deeply significant to Taiwanese citizens.
