Owned and operated by Farm Bureau member Annie Morton and her husband, Dion Chavez, The Little Farm in Athens, Tennessee, is a small family farm that sustainably produces honey, wool, eggs, strawberries, and other fruits and vegetables.

When the couple moved to the farm with their three young children in 2016, the previous owners had generously left behind two healthy beehives and some beekeeping equipment. After a few years of trial and error – plus some help from the Cherokee Beekeepers Association – Morton and Chavez are now able to provide their community with plenty of sweet local honey, which they harvest, process and bottle one hive at a time.

In addition to the bees, they also keep a flock of about 25 chickens and ducks, grow fruit trees and berries, and raise goats and sheep that keep the land mowed and produce high-quality mohair and wool.

    Why do your giveaways always require a Facebook account? I do NOT deal with them and your page would not accept an email address! Very disappointing

      Honey 🍯 is useful to me in many ways. From baking to one teaspoonful in the morning and evening, for health purposes. Small farm local honey is always the best for this.
