About Oak Hill Farm:
Oak Hill Farm of Sonoma is a 700-acre ranch on the eastern side of the Valley of the Moon, in Glen Ellen, California. Anne Teller, widow of Otto Teller, a renowned conservationist who died in 1998, owns the property.

Approximately 200 acres are rolling bottomland, of which about 45 acres are actively farmed, producing flowers and floral greens, and produce for local and wholesale markets. Over 200 varieties of plants are grown for commercial purposes.

All farming is done under a sustainable agriculture/organic farming model, and Oak Hill Farm of Sonoma is registered with the state of California as an organic farm. No chemical pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers are used, nor have they been used since the Tellers bought the property in the 1950's. The rest of the property is steep oak and manzanita woodland rising 800 feet above the valley toward the Mayacamas Ridge.
