Orchard Pond is a delightful farm located in Tallahassee. The family-owned farm is dedicated to producing foods of the highest quality while maintaining sustainability practices. Started in 2008, the owners wanted to ensure they were feeding their own children with high-quality products, so they made their own! This grew into becoming something that can be purchased at local restaurants, grocery stores, and farmer’s markets.
Orchard Pond is proud to have their own apiary which is home to the bees who that make the honey purchased with the Orchard Pond label on it! These bees pollinate the Orchard Pond gardens throughout all four seasons to fuel all of their fresh produce and make the most beautiful flowers. Guests can “get the buzz” on the bees at Orchard Farm by learning how they live, work, and make honey!
