After breaking ground in 2014, Young Living's Northern Lights Farm in Fort Nelson, British Columbia, is officially open to the public
LEHI, Utah, Aug. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Young Living Essential Oils, the world leader in essential oils, announced the grand opening of its Northern Lights Farm in Fort Nelson, British Columbia. In conjunction with its Canadian convention, Young Living held its first Farm Day at Northern Lights, welcoming members from both Young Living and the surrounding community to attend a celebration and tour the farm.
"I am proud to officially open the gates and invite visitors to experience our Seed to Seal® process firsthand at our Northern Lights farm," said D. Gary Young, Founder and Chairman of the Board of Young Living. "As one of my greatest passions and achievements, I'm honored to share Northern Lights with our members and the local community, who have supported this endeavor from day one."
The beautiful Fort Nelson location offers rich soil and plentiful water resources and is abundant with black spruce trees, from which the fragrant Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oil is produced, a key ingredient in some of the popular Young Living essential oil blends such as Valor II™, Peace & Calming II™, and Shutran™.
Today, Young Living celebrates the farm's official grand opening and welcomes visitors, after two years of ambitious efforts to build out the farm and distillery. In addition to a state-of-the-art distillery, the farm houses a conference and education center, with future plans to add a visitor center, spa, and lodge. Last year, the farm produced 6,300 liters of Northern Lights Black Spruce essential oil.
"It is an exciting moment for Gary to share his vision of Fort Nelson with all of the visitors attending the Grand Opening," said Mary Young, Young Living Chief Executive Officer. "Members are watching the Seed to Seal process in awe here in the beautiful Canadian Rockies."
