Overview
More
We are a small family bee farm with an onsite farm stand featuring our Local Raw Honey and some gift items including lip balms and soap made from the beeswax and honey from our hives. We also have a large observation hive in the store so you can watch the bees at work. We are sometime able to accommodate small families or groups for tours into the actual working beehives but those tours must be arranged by calling. We will do our best to meet your schedule but please be aware that on some days taking care of the bees must be our priority. We hope to see you soon!
