Land Of Milk And Honey Farm
This grower has a photo album.
I have been a hobbyist beekeeper for about 15 years. I try to maintain about 5 hives so it’s a small operation. I have been a member of The North Olympic Peninsula Beekeepers’ Association (NOPBA) and I’ve tried to keep informed of the latest ways to keep bees naturally without chemicals. This makes me happy and I think it makes my bees happy, so I call my honey – HAPPY BEE HONEY. It is light colored and mild tasting. It comes from local wildflowers of upper Mt. Pleasant, Port Angeles. My honey is fresh (collected in September) and natural, not processed, so it contains all of nature’s goodness. I live in a non-agricultural area (mostly wooded) therefore my bees aren’t exposed to farm chemicals. Everyone who has tried my honey so far, has thoroughly enjoyed it. I call my farm The Land Of Milk And Honey Farm. You may be wondering if I also sell milk. Actually, I don’t sell milk or beef. I recently ended my cattle business but continue to keep honeybees. I’ll be adding new pictures to my photo album from time to time so come visit again. Thanks for taking a look. Q: How much honey would it take to fuel a bee’s flight around the world?
