A view of the Bee Science property

The Bee Science Farm field in Hadley is located between Bay Rd. and Aqua Vitae Rd and is a long, narrow 7+ acre strip of nearly flat farmland. We are looking South from Bay Rd in this view and you can see the 230' of frontage along Bay Rd, opposite the Hampton Inn.  At the lower right corner there is a town utility shed with some sort of equipment in it, hidden by the overgrown bushes and trees.

Looking Southward in this view, there is a stream that pools somewhat in the foreground.  Access to the field is difficult from Bay Rd because of this water feature, so we think that rather than try to create a pathway, there is enough land to create a lookout spot from the North.  That part of the land is at least 25' higher than the rest, and should provide a nice overall view to the field.

You might have noticed that the fields don't seem to line up perfectly with the property lines: This is OK because the farmer also farmed adjacent plots.  Later on the rows of wildflower and clover should help delineate the property as well.

It's mostly on facebook for now
