A Sustainable Life in Sonoita, AZ
When we started Awaken Organics we had no idea where our homestead farm would take us. We loved the fresh air, the views, the potential the grasslands had to offered and the truth of the matter: we wanted to be sustainable and self reliant.
So we started a 1300 square feet incubator with Fruits, Herbs, and Flowers to get our green thumb in tune to the 5,000 above sea level altitude farming. We still use our incubator to test plant combination to repel insects and to continue our research on growing plants in the region. We had a couple of times when we used neam oil to repel insects but other than that we have use lady bugs and plant combinations to keep our farm pesticide-free.
Seven years into our little experiment we have expanded to a small vineyard with Lavender Fields, Cabernet Sauvignon Grapes, Olive Trees and Boysenberries. Our trees and vines are expected to produce in four years, so in the meantime we continue to experiment with the Herbs, Flowers, we use in our 100% Therapeutic Essential oil elixirs, Soaps and Creams.
We are proud to say that our Farm has become an oasis-sanctuary for Hummingbirds, Bees, Butterflies and Wild Life. Our farm is run by Solar Power and no pesticides are used in any of our fields. Finally, we love it here in our own little Paradise, and yes we will continue to grow, what is life but a constant expansion!
