The Young Living farm in Mona uses sheep to weed the crops. Since sheep dislike lavender’s floral scent, they leave the crop and eat only the weeds.
Small amounts of seeds are collected from every crop each year and are preserved in a climate-controlled storage area. This ensures every subsequent generation of lavender is as healthy as the last.
The farm is home to 150 animals, with all the manure from these animals mixed with the farm’s distilled plant material and composted.
The Young Living farm in Mona is also a waystation for beautiful monarch butterflies, where they can rest and feed during their migration between Canada and Northern Mexico.
