Sleepy Bees Lavender Farm

You Gotta Have Faith

You Gotta Have Faith

I never, ever would have imagined myself as a person who watched the weather at least twice a day. It's so difficult to describe how stressful winter is for a farmer. Both Jerry and I have farmers in our families, and have both heard them go on and on about the weather. I always wondered what the big deal was.  I mean, you can't change it.  It's kind of like a trainwreck though, when it's awful, it's hard to look away.  Somehow it seems like if you watch it closely enough maybe you WILL be able to change it!    ...

Winter at Sleepy Bees
The holiday shopping is over, the lavender plants are put to bed for the winter, and the new plants for 2019 are ordered.  What are we going to do with ourselves for the next few months?  Well, hopefully this is the calm before the storm, and we will spend our quiet months getting organized and prepared.

Meet Biscuit and Gravy

Well, there isn't a whole lot happening right this minute with the lavender or the bees, so I thought it might be a good time to show you all around the farm.  Our farm family keeps growing a little at a time, at the moment we have our sweet dogs, Biscuit and Gravy, 2 barn kitties, Sugar and Spice, Bear, our very old housecat, and about 25 chickens and guinea hens.  We are hoping to add some goats to the mix in a year or so.  I'll start with the pups today, and save the rest for another quiet time....


Website Launched!

Website Launched!
On September 28th, we officially launched our sleepybeeslavender.com website.  This was so exciting for us.  Most of the summer has been spent developing recipes for bath and body products, and sending those products out to testers.  After sending a batch out, we sent out questionnaires, and when we got those back, made adjustments.  It was a lot of trial and error...and actually still is as we are tweaking things all the time.
