Avid photographer and blogger, Geri Wilson, wrote a nice article about our farm. As you can see by the small sample of her photographs below, she has an amazing eye for capturing the beauty of Summers Past. Please visit her blog, Geri's Room, to read her article and see a slideshow of her recent visit to the farm.

Into Her Healing Embrace
Where Our Spirit Comes To The Fore
Free, Empowered, Whole."

Summers Past Farms is a small family business nestled in the foothills just 30 minutes east of downtown San Diego on historic Old Highway 80. Because the climate is one of the mildest in the United States, Sheryl & Marshall Lozier are busy planting, harvesting and crafting all year long.

Our retail shop is housed in a 3,500 square foot post-and-timber barn we built ourselves. The barn is always a fun place to shop and see what's new for the season! Come see all the new fairy items, gardening and cookbooks, country furniture, garden statues, and home décor items. In our plant and herb nursery, you'll delight in a selection of culinary herbs, ornamental landscape plants, water-wise plants, native plants, and well as many beautiful flowers for every season. You can see the plants in our decorative or herb gardens.

We also invite you to visit our herbal soap shop where we have been making the finest all natural vegetable based soaps, hand salves and lavender sprays since 1992. Start making your own today! Soap Making kits and supplies are available along with a full line of essential and fragrance oils. Fine skin care products from around the world fill the tables in the spa-like getaway including dead sea products and French-milled soaps.

Stroll through the garden or enjoy a bench under our shady pavilion. Come and see our beautiful flower gardens or join us at one of our many workshops or gardening classes. Our workshops are offered on the weekends, seasonally in our loft. Learn more about creating herbal vinegar, wreaths, herbal soap, hand salves, lip balms and gardening.

Many events are held annually including Sweet Pea Day Celebration, An Antique and Craft Fair (twice a year), wine tasting, Lavender Day Celebration, Pumpkin Patch, and a Holiday Open House.
