About Moon Valley
In 1998 Moon Valley was conceived out of a passion to live ethically and sustainably. Kim and Aaron Otto, creators of Moon Valley Organics, share their combined experiences in farming, healing, creativity/artistry, and activism to nurture a thriving business. Their quest for wholeness and well-being led them to develop their unique healing body care products. Today that enthusiasm carries forth from their certified organic, permaculture farm and embraces traditional knowledge from their family of artisan farmers, herbalists and beekeepers. Every product is developed with the intention to nourish and heal your body, mind, and spirit, as well as to care for the Earth.
Moon Valley Organics’ goal is to support organic farms and the people who farm on them by providing a source for high quality, organic personal care products that promote a healthy way of caring for our bodies and the world. They believe in using simple ingredients from their own farm, packaged in environmentally friendly containers, free of any artificial ingredients. Everything grown on Moon Valley’s farm is 100% USDA certified organic, and herbs are cultivated using permaculture practices. They are carefully dried, processed and packaged on site. What can’t be grown at Moon Valley is sourced from local organic farms and suppliers who support fair trade and the (RAN) Rainforest Action Network.
