Lily Farm Fresh Skin Care grown on our USDA certified organic farm.
Lily grew up working on her Dad’s farm, a sixth-generation American grower. After suffering terrible acne and finding no relief from traditional Doctors and medications, Lily turned to botanicals and created Lily Farm Fresh Skin Care, in 1986 (Then, Lily of Colorado and later Lily Organics).
Her first customer was Margaret the co-founder of Natural Grocers. With the success of the products she developed, she began selling commercially in 1986, as the pioneer of the first organic skin care company in Colorado. Lily began growing her own ingredients when she could not source organic, this was in 1987 and there was no USDA-certified organic program. Growing up on a conventional farm, she was all too aware of the harmful pesticides and would not tolerate them in her products, to completely control quality and provide customers with total transparency, and the highest quality products possible, she started growing her own lavender, calendula, comfrey, fennel, feverfew, and many more ingredients.
We were the first company to put “No synthetic chemicals, ever!” on every bottle we produce, and we still are the only company that puts that statement on every bottle! We are the only skin care company in the world you can buy directly from the USDA certified organic grower! Our skin care is the best and freshest in the world! “A skin care product cannot be better than its ingredients!” says Lily. This is how we give our customers amazing results!
Lily loves talking to the customers and wanted to engage them directly in agriculture in a meaningful way, and that is when Lily Farm Fresh Event Center and 80 acre farm was born. “We love having people out to the farm, both our skin care customers and our guests of weddings, memorials, quinceañeras, reunions and parties. We want people to understand, organic is much more than a fashion statement, it is a methodology of agriculture. We want our customers to come visit us on our farm and see first hand how we grow and make our products!”
