At Tree Frog Farm, we work in a mutually supportive, co-creative, partnership with Nature to produce high-quality essences of Pacific Northwest native plants, medicinal herbs, and other garden plants. We are located on Lummi Island, in the temperate rain forests of the PNW, and along the Pacific Ring of Fire (a zone of frequent earthquakes and volcanic eruptions that encircles the basin of the Pacific Ocean). Together these environmental influences support the gentle, yet deeply transformative quality of our essences during these rapidly changing times.
Tree Frog Farm specializes in offering flower and tree essences in a delightful alcohol free base of red shiso leaf tea and vinegar. We off this alternative to the traditional brandy flower essence base for those who are sensitive to, or cannot consume alcohol. Tree Frog Farm offers both bases with our essences.

Respect for ALL Life
Our philosophy at Tree Frog Farm is one of kinship with, and respect for all Life. We take care not to harm any creature. As an example, we relocate slugs out into the woods instead of killing them. In 2000-01 Tree Frog Farm became a Washington State Department of Wildlife Certified Backyard Wildlife Habitat sanctuary, Backyard Forest Steward with the State Department of Natural Resources and a Sierra Club/Project SeaWolf Salmon Friendly Landscape. We support United Plant Savers who through education and research works to protect wild herbs that have become threatened due to over-harvesting or loss of natural habitat. In support of protecting endangered herbs, we grow small patches of bloodroot, black cohosh, blue cohosh, trillium, wild yam, arnica, cascara, maidenhair fern, and Oregon grape.
Our understanding of health follows our philosophy of kinship with and respect for all Life. We call it “healing to wholeness.” Each lifetime offers physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual challenges in our learning process. These challenges are healing opportunities; health becomes then not the absence of symptoms, but the returning to wholeness with All.
Diana Pepper and John Robinson
Since childhood, Diana Pepper felt a close bond with plants and animals that grew into a deep reverence for all Life. She was a communicator with plants, plant spirits, the fairies/nature spirits of Tree Frog Farm, and with Angels and Teachers of other dimensions.
She created the Tree Frog Farm line of flower essences & aromatherapy products for human, animal and planetary health, as it was a natural expression of who she was.
Diana passed on to her next phase and left this life on December 20th 2021 in her home with loved ones. She and John wanted her employees, Stu and Rhaychell to carry on with her work and take Tree Frog Farm to the next phase.
Although John has a Masters Degree and is Tree Frog Farms resident ‘gnome’ he has retired and went feral. He supports Tree Frog Farm in allowing us to continue Diana’s work and tends to the grounds here. And even if he may not want to be, he is still the resident go-to guy. He is lives here at Tree Frog Farm with Aspen the golden retriever, and Star kitty. We love him!
The History of Tree Frog Farm
Together Diana and John established Tree Frog Farm Flower Essences in 2000. It grew out of their love for this magical land. All plants are grown chemically free using organic principles to support the health of the land and the people using our products. Our flower essences come from the native, medicinal, and ornamental garden plants that ecologically, and energetically form the integrated dynamics of the land. By doing this, we are respectfully creating an environmentally sustainable business.
The Overlighting Deva/Angel of Tree Frog Farm, the Fairies, and the Teachers of other dimensions who guide us, help us to operate in alignment with the highest purpose for Tree Frog Farm, and for the benefit of all Beings.
Where It All Began
John purchased the land we call Tree Frog Farm in 1976 as a homestead, garden, and Nature/Human sanctuary. It is 2.75 acres on Lummi Island overlooking the San Juan Islands in north Puget Sound, Washington, USA. Lummi Island is off the coast of Bellingham and neighbors to Lummi Nation near the Canadian border. It has a marine temperate climate with mild, rainy winters, and warm summers. We love it here because this climate is ideal for nearly year-round gardening of perennial herbs and native plants.
Tree Frog Farm is named after the nickel-sized bright green tree frogs that send up a chorus in the woods near here and the gardens. We have mature flower and vegetable gardens including our labyrinth medicinal herb garden. The woods are a mix of mature evergreens, (including Grand fir, Douglas fir, and Western Red cedar) and deciduous trees like Red Alder and Big Leaf Maple. Many of these are over one hundred feet tall. The understory is dominated by the many native wild berry shrubs and ferns, for which this region is famous. Many species of birds, frogs, and other critters call this land home.
