The Flower Farm
Ocean View Flowers grows tens of millions of stems each year on 400 to 500 acres located in the Lompoc Valley in northern Santa Barbara County. The valley’s unique environment makes it one of the finest flower-growing regions in California.
The Lompoc coast is where the northern and southern currents of the Pacific Ocean meet, bringing cool ocean breezes to the flower fields that provide excellent growing and harvesting conditions for all of the flowers grown by Ocean View.
