Lovers Lane Farm
Lovers Lane Farm is a small, husband-and-wife beekeeping business on the outskirts of Ukiah, California. Co-owner Keith Feigin was born and raised in Ukiah. He started the beekeeping business on his family’s 85-acre ranch with two goals: to create a viable local business to strengthen the economy of Mendocino County, and to bring a great local product to the tables of his neighbors. Keith learned the ropes from long-time local beekeper Jack Booth. As a boy Keith would follow Jack to his hives, hoping to get a taste of the sweet honey as soon as it started flowing from the spring vetch blossoms. Besides a thick skin for bee stings, he developed an appreciation for the way the taste of honey changes from season to season and from hive to hive.
Today, Lovers Lane Farm harvests small batches of gourmet honey from the mountains, valleys and orchards of rustic Mendocino County. By placing the hives strategically amongst the seasonal power sources and numerous distinct climates within the county, Lovers Lane Farm produces an array of flavorful honeys. Each batch tastes unique, year after year, depending on the weather, soil, and plants in the immediate area of the hive. No chemicals or pesticides are used in the production of Lovers Lane Farm honey. The honey is pure, unfiltered and unprocessed using only natural gravity ow to move the liquid.
