The Estate

In the early 1940s, a determined pair of young renegades arrived in California to realize their vision of an earthly paradise. High atop the hills of Los Angeles, hidden by a lush orchard and dense gardens, the flamingo-pink estate became a hedonistic enclave of sun-worship, folk mythologies, and psychedelic remedies — a secret haven for wild alchemy in the City of Angels.

Now Flamingo Estate is the home of Richard Christiansen, and, in the spirit of its origins, a radical celebration of pleasure from the garden. We carefully cultivate Mother Nature’s wildest, most precious gifts, at a time when we need them most.

Our Promise

We believe that pleasure is a human right. That to stand on the Earth and sing her praises is one of the most joyful and necessary privileges of being alive. Flamingo Estate was founded on the idea that in a world that profits off our numbness, it is a radical act to wake up our senses. To relish the slow dive, the deep breath. The bee asleep in the mallow, the drizzle of olive oil on a soft-boiled egg. These are the moments that foster joy. This is pleasure from the garden.

Mother Nature only takes care of us when we take care of her, so Flamingo Estate is committed to offering and growing socially and environmentally responsible goods and produce of the highest quality.

We work with farmers who employ regenerative practices, and those that are on their way to doing so. This means an emphasis on healthy living soil, respect for our watersheds, and never, ever using pesticides. In other words, preserving old, good ways of doing things that champion connection with the Earth.

This also means there’s risk involved. Storm clouds roll in. Droughts dry up crops. Hives swarm. Things sell out. The good stuff is really rare and hard-won. We like this about it, and hope you do, too.

Like the garden, we’re always growing, always changing, with aims to learn and improve our practices as we go. Everything we make is meant to bring you pleasure. If, for some reason, it doesn’t, please let us know at concierge@flamingoestate.com. (We’re all in this together.)
