PHILOSOPHY OF SWAZEY FARMS
Not just a farm, but a way of life
For years, Swazey Farms has sought to create a sustainable oasis in a suburban community. Too often people assume agriculture is reserved for large rural properties. We've approached sustainable agriculture one step at a time, implementing methods and tactics acquired from years of research and networking. We are proud to share the fruits of our labor with our followers but our primary focus is on education. Sharing our ideas and providing ways to implement them at any scale is our passion.

Got HONEY BEES?? WHATEVER YOU DO, DON'T SPRAY THEM!!! IF YOU SPRAY THEM, WE CANNOT HELP YOU!!!
We can humanely relocate honey bees from trees, bushes, fences, attics, walls.. you name it! And most times, our service is low cost! (Fees apply if demolition and cutout are required) Please provide us with as much detail as possible regarding its size, location and access. so we can best serve you.
We perform removals typically from May through August with exceptions on a case by case basis. After August the bees will begin winter preparations and eventually go dormant. Come Spring, we can reassess and address your issue.
Our goal at Swazey Farms is to educate others on how to live sustainably. Knowledge is empowering and we've gained alot of it over the years. We've developed a means to share that knowledge with children and adults alike and these experiences can be tailored to fit your needs.
