What started as a college assignment, “Missy’s Organic Farm Stand” came full circle when she graduated and felt unsure about what career path she should take. It has not been an easy path as Missy and her husband Austin are learning about being farmers the hard way, yet they are not stopping and are more enthused about farming than ever. The 2017 fires destroyed their main farm just a year after they established their own. After regrouping and rebuilding they are “all all-in,” said Melissa. “All of this will go forward and be even stronger than before.” 


Bee-Well Farms, LLC is a diversified farm in Sonoma County. Husband and wife team, Austin and Melissa Lely, began the farm in 2015, with the mission to produce and sell a range of wholesome products for the local community, while using a holistic management approach to enhance the land and farm ecosystem.

Currently on the farm, they are raising cattle and honeybees, and have 3 acres in seasonal vegetable crop and flower production.

You can find Bee-Well products locally at the Sonoma Valley Certified Farmers Market.
