The Animals

The chickens and bees enjoy the good life at Bee Happy Homestead. The 24 chickens live in 3 houses with large play areas that will be expanding in 2019. They are fed an organic grain and various treats. They love fresh picked treats from the garden and are lucky enough to get produce from Sweet Pea Farm as well. They are kind enough to produce plenty of manure for the compost bin and eggs.

We have between 10+ bee hives going at a time. They are cared for with the utmost respect for what they are able to do! Treatments and interventions are based on their needs to keep them as healthy and as strong as possible. We only take from the hives what is in excess so to not compromise their natural abilities to survive. Treatment methods used are organically approved.
