Shady Place Farm has deep roots and they keep getting deeper! Neal worked the farm beside his grandfather and his father when the farm was a full-scale dairy farm. Over time the dairy cattle were replaced with primarily Black Angus beef cattle. All the while attention was given to excellent husbandry practices with the herd and good stewardship practices with the land. The daily operations are performed by Neal and Ava. And the fourth generation of Morgan’s, sons Eli and Nathanael, actively share the love and work of farming. Daughter-in-laws Kinsey and Kaytlin can be found helping out with various aspects of the farm,too. You may also find Neal’s father, Don, (who’s 90 years young) out on the farm lending his expertise, weather permitting!

Lyne and Ed Vendely operate Sweet Betty Bee’s, a Certified Naturally Grown farm in the Big Pine area of Madison County, producing honey, honey soaps, and beeswax products. Our honey is unheated and unfiltered, leaving intact its amazing nutritional composition. Minimal straining removes larger particles while allowing pollens to remain, though we also offer a limited quantity of really raw honey in the natural comb. We practice organic principles to the greatest extent possible by finding alternatives to pesticides and antibiotics when caring for our hives. Additionally, we do not feed corn syrup or sugar to our bees. We see our apiaries as a partnership with the bees and with the whole of Mother Nature. Healthier, happier bees make better honey!
