Our new YL partner farm in Mexico
Citrus from Ciudad Victoria
Our extended family of partner farms continues to grow! We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with the Finca Victoria Farm, located in Ciudad Victoria, Mexico!
The Finca Victoria Farm will provide Young Living with Lime and Grapefruit essential oils, which will come from citrus grown on more than 2,400 acres of farmland. And while operations span thousands of acres of farmland, the Finca Victoria Farm isn’t only a farm—it’s also a cold-press facility! This means that our oils will come from fresh citrus rinds that are cold-pressed on-site. Because the Finca Victoria Farm is a zero-waste facility, the citrus juice, pulp, and rinds will be put to good use after the oils are extracted.
The Finca Victoria Farm’s zero-waste status is one of the reasons why Young Living has chosen to partner with them, as it’s one of our 5×5 Pledge goals to bring all our operations to zero-waste status by 2024. The farm also meets our high Young Living standards and adheres to our Seed to Seal® quality commitment! The seeds are non-GMO, and the farm works to ensure soil health by strategically testing soil nutrition at just the right time. Pest control is regulated by the EPA and USDA, using biotechnology for distinction rather than chemical methods.
The Finca Victoria Farm also practices fair-trade principles, which is important to the Standards pillar of the Seed to Seal commitment. The employment opportunities offered by the farm and processing facility provide important support to the rural communities around Ciudad Victoria.
We are thrilled to welcome this beautiful farm into our global family—and we know you’ll love every drop of oil that comes from their farm into your home!
