Growing produce through the use of non-GMO seeds/plants, abstaining from use of synthetic fertilizers, insecticides, and herbicides.

Honey and Beekeeping
We have our hives situated in several locations in the area to maximize nectar production for the honeybees, practicing natural management practices. We avoid heavy pesticide areas as much is possible, striving for healthy honeybees. Products: Raw honey, chunk honey (seasonally), creme honey, bee pollen, propolis tincture, candles, lip balm, salves/lotion, handmade soap, baked goods and pickles made with honey. Natural ingredients and no petroleum by-products used in our bee products.
Our vegetables and fruits are grown without synthetic chemicals and with non-GMO open pollinated or select hybrid seeds/plants. We grow a variety of vegetables and in a few years hope to have tree fruits bearing. Work is in progress with a few blackberry canes, as well.
