What you'll do

We will start the tour off at our farm stand where we will show you our honey and dairy processing facility. Refreshments and restrooms will be available at this time. From there we will see the 'Makery', where John creates top bar hives and much more. Our tour continues to an outdoor sitting area before we walk around to see many gardens, fruit trees, bananas, and various approaches at growing food. Next we will visit our sheep and chickens, and you may feed them before continuing on through a pineapple patch into the honey bee sanctuary. We continue down to the lower acreage where our dairy cows and calves are grazing in their pastures. You may feed them as we explore in amazement how they transform and clear the land. We will stroll back up to the side of our property where a natural spring feeds three ponds and flows into a stream which borders our property. We will conclude the farm tour at our farm stand with refreshments and farm treats for your enjoyment. You will get to sample mead, honey, bee bread, fresh dairy products, and more.
Other things to note
This is an apiary, which mean there will be bees, and the possibility of getting stung. There is uneven terrain and electric fences on the property. Waiver signature required.
