MONARCHS, BIRDS AND BEES
Here on the Rocking L Ranch and Imagine Lavender Farm, we strive to help the Monarchs survive by maintaining natural habitat, Milkweed of several varieties, water and undisturbed areas for them to breed and rest during their arduous migrations in spring and fall. April brings the magnificent butterflies to lay eggs on the milkweed, then again in the fall they pass through feeding on the abundant Frostweed, resting in the oak trees before moving on to Mexico.
We have quite a few active hives in different location on the ranch. The honey is harvested and part is infused with Lavender, the rest is left like it comes from the hives wild, local and raw. Our honey is available online and at our retail outlets.
Many birds are observed here on the farm/ranch, some stay all years others are just migrating though the area. All are amazing to see and observe.
