Ananda Valley Farm

1050 Frenchmans Creek Road
Half Moon Bay
   Directions

For years, we've talked about growing organic food. In 2013, a beautiful 60-acre farm in Half Moon Bay became ours, just a few miles from the ocean. There's a crew working nearly every day during the growing season (March-November) and a warm invitation to join in the fun any time you wish. Everyone who has visited has felt their breath taken away by the beauty and peace we feel there. There is something unusual — almost magical about this place. Perhaps it's because water is available year-round from a mountain-top spring that American Indians have long considered sacred. Perhaps it's because the land has been lovingly farmed for more than 100 years. Come on over, get your hands dirty, and your spirit cleansed from the bustle of life on this side of the hill.

“I invite you to share my deep love and respect for nature, and my passion for everything herbal. I delight in teaching the ancient art and science of herbalism to create awareness and appreciation of the natural environment and the rich connection between plants and people.”
—Suzanne Elliott
