Bees are an amazing part of our farm—the sound of them combined with the fragrance of our lavender has been rumored to relieve stress, eliminate anxiety and generally put smiles on our visitor’s faces. 


At Bates Lavender Farm we have bee hives for honey and for the lavender plants. The bees on the lavender are very interested in the lavender and not you, they’re working—they literally ignore you unless you grab one by mistake.  If you are allergic to bees, we recommend you bring your Epipen just in case.
