Blossom’s best / laguna creek farm
This biodynamically run association seeks to develop an integrated, ecologically and economically sustainable farm individuality at its stunningly beautiful location in Bonny Doon, California.
Blossom’s Best value added foods is owned and run by Carin Fortin and Delmar McComb. Featured are crops and farm products chosen to make cultured foods such as sauerkraut, kefir, and kvass along with other value added products such as pesto and dehydrated foods. Uncommon ornamentals for cut flowers and foliage along with unusual annual and perennial vegetables are also grown.
Laguna Creek Farm and the land itself is owned by Jeannine Bonstelle who generously supports and actively participates in the development of the farm organism. Jeannine became interested in Biodynamics 20 years ago through the Santa Cruz Waldorf School, where her son graduated from.
The mission of Laguna Creek Farm is to utilize one of the most inspirational farm sites on the California Coastal bench-lands, helping to further urban and rural connectivity by combining active production and experiential education on a working bio-dynamic farm. The Laguna Creek Farm Collective also keeps bees, tends to poultry, goats, a recently planted orchard, and, soon to be, sheep and cows.
