About Us

simple pleasures. relax. enjoy.

Wilderbee is a certified organic, family-run farm specializing in u-pick lavender, flowers, and pumpkins.

 

We raise honeybees for pollination and a conservation flock of rare, primitive British Soay sheep for wool. During summer we distill lavender for essential oil ~ available at our farm store along with our lavender lotions and balms, blackberry blossom honey, bottles of mead, and unique woodcrafts made by Dad.

 

In 2019 we opened a meadery {The Mead Werks} at the farm ~ a production barn and tasting room specializing in small-batch traditional and barrel-aged meads. 

 

Wilderbee is located in the scenic, historic seaport and arts community of Port Townsend on Washington's beautiful Olympic Peninsula. In 2011 we built Wilderbee as a destination with visitors in mind, to provide a relaxing place to explore and enjoy life's simple pleasures. 

Feed the sheep. Pick a bouquet. Sip some mead. Walk our nature trails. Enjoy the day at Wilderbee.

For Everyone’s Comfort & Safety:

Watch your step, pathways may be uneven. 

Avoid walking through crop rows. Use aisles.

Accompany young children at all times.

Keep dogs at home or safely in your vehicle.

Service dogs are welcome.

Thank you for not smoking.

Our Values

To laugh often and much. 

To win the respect of intelligent people. To earn the appreciation of honest critics. To appreciate beauty. To find the best in others. To leave the world a bit better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition. To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. 

This is to have succeeded.
