DANGER IN GETTING STUNG?
Clovermead keeps most of their bee hives on other farm land so there are not 24 million bees flying around on our farm. The honey bees here are pretty friendly & you generally do not notice them. Just like in a park! Honey bees are vegetarians, they eat pollen & collect nectar, fortunately, they do not eat people.

Bees will sting if they feel threatened, they normally will leave you alone if you leave them BEE.
ARE WE ALLOWED TO BRING OUR OWN FOOD?
For your convenience, Clovermead has picnic tables adjacent to the parking areas for you to eat your own lunch if you wish. Outside food is not permitted. 

Food options on the farm are found at the Beestro Cafe, Cookhouse and Kettle Kaboose. Check out the menus here. 

 Day camps & schools are allowed to bring in their lunches.
