Welcome to our farm! Lion Springs Lavender Farm is the home of Carmel Caramels since 2014. We built and started the farm from scratch and we are a female-owned, small family farm in Carmel Valley Village, California. All our culinary lavender products are home made by hand at the farm with organic lavender grown here on our farm. We have honey bees in our apiary that produce wonderful honey from our lavender flowers. We hand-make delicious, sea-salted lavender honey caramels in our permitted cottage kitchen at the farmhouse. We use all fresh ingredients. We hope you’ll love Carmel Caramels, as well as our other lavender products, as much as we do. A portion of our proceeds go towards the California Mountain Lion Foundation.
We have a special place in our heart for the mountain lions here at the farm for two reasons. First, we see mountain lion footprints on our farm and have seen them time to time at the farm, like crossing Carmel Valley Road,
Second, mountain lions are the namesake for our farm, Lion Springs Lavender Farm, because we saw a mountain lion drinking from a vernal spring at our farm. Since we are a certified organic farm with the Monterey County Certified Organic program (MCCO), we recognize the value of preserving our environment for future generations. Mountain Lions are at the top of the food chain so if we help keep their population alive, it shows a healthy ecological balance in our land. We work hard to create a sustainable “green” farm using certified organic methods.
Most of all, we think mountain lions are beautiful animals and are happy to be part of the stewardship of the land to be sure they don’t become extinct on our watch. So, help us help save the mountain lions one caramel at a time. Eat Carmel Caramels and save the California Mountain Lions.
(By the way, I love photographs of mountain lions “springing” or jumping. So, if you find any good ones, please send them to me. After all, Lions “Springs” is our logo!)
