Bee’s

Happy Bee's

We are what you would call the backyard bee keepers.  The angels of agriculture are the most fascinating  and mystical creatures on our farm.  They bring life to the farm and sweeten my tea every morning.

This is our 3rd year with bees and have decided that a mostly hands off approach is the best.  This is an organic farm and do not treat them with any antibiotics or chemicals. Most of our management is keeping the hives dry, in the best locations for warm sun, and protection from being knocked over by cattle, goats, bears, etc.
