The bees will help maximize pollination of our fruits making for more and larger fruits. As most of you know the bees also provide us with delicious honey. Our honey will be natural, raw and unprocessed.

 

 

 

Mark your calendars for National Honey Bee DaySaturday, August 15, 2015.

Make sure and visit us for activities celebrating what bees do for us. We’ll have honey for sale, honey desserts, and door prizes.
