BWF MISSION is to support the health and well being of our community through QUALITY EDUCATION, FOOD, AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT opportunities offered in an agricultural setting. Bee Wise Farms is focused on community success and offers personal and professional support through programs, mentorship, and nature based therapies.
Learn more about your farmers and educators, Lacey and Adam Ingrao. The best way to stay connected is through our Facebook page. There, we share information about the farm, pollinator gardens, and wellness in nature. We look forward to staying connected with you.
2016 was FULL...and this includes our bellies with honey. To ensure sustainability of the Heroes to Hives Program , we transitioned the program to MSU Extension. This program now falls under the Michigan Pollinator Initiative. Please read more.
Bee Wise Farms was not lucky in veggies as it was in our honey harvest last year. We will change a bit of our growing style this year to protect ourselves from the deer. We have a full herbal healing garden and hundred of iris bulbs planted. We look forward to sharing those picture with you .
As for hives, we will expand to 20 hives over 5 sites in 2017. As honey becomes available we will let everyone know on our Facebook page and here on our website.
In January 2016, Bee Wise Farms, LLC was established and we acquired more land, expanded our operations to include more vegetables and cut flowers. We also began our Veteran Mentorship program, teaching five veterans about urban bee keeping. We are excited to continue sharing our development with you. Feel free to sign up for our newsletter to ensure you stay up-to-date.
September 2015. We've Got Hives...
Capturing the Journey...
With our current busy schedules we wanted to ensure we provide, at least, the fundamentals of our development. Here are some photos to share the journey and to capture the process as it happens. Our goals for the farm includes education, food access, and a safe place to explore what nature has to offer. We hope you enjoy walking through this experience with us and thank you for witnessing.
