3 Bee Farms started with beekeeping in 1993, selling honey at farmers markets. Over time, they have expanded to a wide variety of vegetables and more. They currently have about 10 acres of crop production, which include Asparagus to Zucchini and everything in between. In addition to fresh produce, they sell live plants such as succulents, bedding plants, and flower & vegetable starts. They also have jams, jellies, and dressings made with some of their products. They may be known best for their hydroponic tomatoes. Their largest crops in terms of acres are pumpkins and gourds, including many unique varieties of colors and textures. They have more than 10 varieties of apples in the orchard. Kohlrabi and golden beets are some of their more popular crops, as well as onions, rhubarb, asparagus, and zuchinni. They even have a small herb garden. You can find a full listing of all 3 Bee products at https://www.3beefarms.com/products
