JoAnn Wallenstein and Richard Wallenstein have created a lavender haven and a bee paradise with their Lavender Bee Farm, located on the outskirts of Petaluma.
“I haven’t ever found a better place than Chapman Lane in Petaluma,” said JoAnn Wallenstein, “so here I am.
With the Lavender Bee Farm, the Wallensteins are not only maintaining a thriving farm in Sonoma County, they’re also stewards. They’re committed to educating the public as they bring groups in for scheduled tours, shopping and weddings on the property.
The bees are raised naturally and only 40% of the honey is harvested, leaving the rest for the bees for their winter food.
