Green Pastures Farmis family owned and operated, having been in Mike’s family for over forty years. For 3 or 4 months in the Spring and Summer of 2019 Mike ran a pop up farm store on Bell School Line, just West of Milton and North of Burlington. It was a great way to meet new customers and make some initial sales. Many of the people he met on the side of the road are still customers today. It was a really good experience, but it was A LOT of work! At the same time, we were just starting up.
At Backed By Bees in the last little while, we have been through a lot of change. It’s inevitable, and something that every start up business is forced to deal with. Among all the change the three of us have taken on, we started with an idea, a belief that has kept it all grounded and focused. The idea being ‘local’; from the physical location of operations, to the community we are joining, to the products we are able to produce, from the land to the hive to the bottle, everything is rooted in supporting local.
