Stella Lou Farm: Bees
StellaLou Farm, a permaculture homestead, is located about 5 miles down the road from us. Among their many wonderful activities, they are beekeeping and building a meadery. In the interests of promoting a healthy local bee population, it's helpful to establish hives at least a few miles away, and so Street Road is the happy host of some buzzy residents. The hives gracing our hillside are built by Michaelann and Jerome, and beautifully painted by Hannah - we feel so lucky to have such amazing neighbors.
