Sunflowers and bees. The perfect combination. As you can imagine, we are blessed with an incredible amount of bees on the farm.
Did you know that more than fifteen billion dollars a year in U.S. crops are pollinated by bees? Keeping bee populations safe is critical for American tables stocked with high quality produce and our agricultural sector running smoothly.

Hope to see you at the market. 🙂
