SunLife BootahBees Real Honey Drizzle from Honeybees

We’re Building a Village of BootahBees

They account for 1/3 of the food we consume. Without honeybees, Einstein theorized humans would not exist.

What started as a passion became an obsession as we ventured into the world of beekeeping. The world’s bee population is headed toward trouble. We believed that SunLife Farm and Ranch could harbor and care for them by developing a world to safely accommodate their intricate life work while creating a local food source.

Welcome to Bootahville. A full bee ranch support village made from our very own creation. We started with two colonies of honeybees; threw a pair of boots on each of them and let ‘em pollinate. What we ended up with is a whole lot of characters living within an evolving eco-system we continue to improve upon.

The SunLife Cause Building Bootahful Bee Systems

We have 19 colonies of Bootahbees honeybees spread out into sections of the property. They can be viewed from parts of the 20 plus miles of walking trail options. We name our areas as we enhance our property to be both a provider for cultivated crops and restoration areas for native pollinators and grass land. The names and the areas themselves are an experience for farm visitors.

Bootahville, The Beeburbs, Beeverly Hills, The Birdlands, The Bootdocks, Grassic Park, Dashers Canyon and Breathless Valley can all be found on SunLife’ 160 acre property.

With planned community events, we’ll have bee, bird and farming masters leading many of the educational components for visitors on those days.

Lavender Farm and Honeybees in Prineville Central Oregon

As a stop on the High Desert Food Trail beginning in 2022, our honey is expected to be in high demand. We’re keeping our availability limited to the farm and our small jar sizes assure we’ll have enough for all visitors.

We’re opening Bootahs Refreshment Center and use honey as a drizzle option for many of our milk shake selections. You can enjoy them at The Bootdocks while lounging in a swinging hammock. It’s our version of Utopia. Also serving lavender/lemonade SunFreeze Slushy’s, ice cream cones, teas and more.
