Hi there! I'm Lindsay, together with my husband, Josh, I own and operate Sweet Spot Farm & Apiary. We are a small family farm located near Bridgeport, West Virginia.
My husband and I are both from Montana, and grew up spending summers on our grandparents' farms and ranches. We spent the last 15 years moving around the country as my husband pursued his medical education, and dreaming of a day when we could settle on a piece of land and cultivate a lifestyle that we had been missing since we left home. A place where our four daughters could experience fresh air, hard work, and a deep appreciation for nature.
After deciding that Bridgeport would be our "forever" home, we immediately began searching for a piece of land. Somewhat serendipitously we ended up seeing 23 acres only 10 minutes from our home, and while there were many reasons to say "no," in the end we just couldn't get over what a sweet little spot it was.
We quickly got to work setting up our honey bees, and developing a logo for our Sweet Spot Honey. In order to expand our hives and provide our bees with ample pollen sources, last spring we planted a quarter acre cutting garden on the property with over 100 flower varieties. Last fall we added a rose cutting garden with over 30 varieties of long stem hard to find and heirloom garden roses. They join our growing perennial garden that includes several varieties of lilac, peonies, and hydrangea. The flower varieties that we grow are detailed on the farm's Pinterest page (link at the bottom) if you are looking for a certain color or shape.
In addition to our Sweet Spot Flower Farm Honey and many varieties of fresh cut flowers, my parents will be producing small batches of Sweet Spot Maple Syrup from our 15 acre woods.
Last fall we completed construction on the Sweet Spot Chicken Cottage, and we are excited to begin offering our farm eggs for subscription sale. The cottage is large enough to house 60 free range laying hens with plenty of safe outdoor space. We are currently operating at about 50% capacity.
