Now we are officially Bee loved

For years Bee Loved Lavender has wanted to own hives of honey bees. In 2019 we took the challenge and have been so excited watching two hives get established before the 2019 lavender bloom season. Follow along and check in on the progress! Our lavender can’t wait for these visitors.
