Michael began the farm's apiary adventure mesmerized by these tiny, busy, buzzing bodies. Their vast and benevolent impression on our landscape was reason enough for him to start a hive, not to mention the lure of splendor-filled golden honey. After some time of "bee-having," Michael and Laurie collectively began the more involved practice of beekeeping: visiting the bees, checking, feeding, observing, and listening.
Our aim is to keep things natural for the bees, leaving them enough hard-earned honey for winter survival, doing minimal disturbance and interventions, and promoting hive health without vaccinations.
Our honey is something special -- raw and beautiful. You can taste, smell, and see the seasons in our honey, a reflection of the pollen collected from wildflowers, tree blossoms, cover crops, and our vegetable fields.
