Here’s a check up on our bees that we introduced to May Farms a few weeks ago. These bees not only serve the purpose of producing honey but to also pollinate the crops! Our very own Grant took this great video of his first time checking on the bees by himself. Good job Grant!
As many of you may know we planted thousands of lavender plants 2 years ago along the hillside west of the pond. This lavender will not only be aesthetically pleasing but manage erosion along the hill. The lavender will take a few years to reach maturity but once the plants are mature we will be able to provide you several products made from the lavender which will be available in our country store. We’ve got plans to produce lavender honey, lavender tea, lavender lotion, lavender soap, lavender cream, lavender sachets, lavender spray, lavender truffles and the list goes on!

Last week our good friend Quentin Smith brought over 20,000 honey bees to our farm! Sounds a little crazy right?… but bees are important to us and all farmers! These bees will not only collect lavender honey from our lavender field but pollinate our flowers and crops to ensure promising yields.
Many of the foods and crops we rely on need or, at the very least, benefit from bee pollination. Here’s a list of some of those crops.
