This Sunday, December 18, from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Bee Heaven Farm will opens its doors to the public for its Seventh Annual Farm Day.
Bee Heaven Farm took root in 1995 in the Redland. It blossomed, but then got walloped by Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma in 2005. They've since been on the upswing and are flourishing again.
Owner Margie says, " Normally the farm is closed to the public, but the Farm Day is the only exception to that. There will be tons of activities like hay rides, farmers' markets, live music featuring Jennings & Keller, and a few selected food trucks like Dim Ssäm à Gogo, Baketress, and Real Sorbet.."
The $5 donation (entry) helps support a farm internship program and also gives you a chance to win a Smith & Hawken BioStack Composter. Bee Heaven says, "[Farm Day] is fun for the whole family!" We'll be there for the eats and to hopefully score a fancy composter.
