The majority of our summer was spent weeding and attending craft shows, fairs, and farmers' markets. We have met a ton of great people and made some really good business connections. We learned so much this summer. We are finding our niche and settling in nicely.
Our plan was to have the bees pollinate the lavender, which in turn would give the honey our bees made a lavender taste. Win-Win! According to numerous articles we read, bees LOVE lavender, so we were on the right track.
We are Jerry and Holly McCabe, and we want to share our experiences (both the successes and the failures) as we learn the ins and outs of creating a lavender and honey farm. We are learning as we go. We have literally no experience with farming or raising bees, so it should prove interesting.
