Lucky Bee Homestead is a small farm in Murray Harbour North. Sabine & Michael Schoenknecht bought their little piece of heaven in early spring 2013 when they came to the island.
Both grew up in families where the tradition was to grow and preserve the food for the winter. They were making jams, pickles, Sauerkraut and canned all vegetables coming from their own garden. There is nothing better to open a glass of jam or veggies in the middle of the winter - bringing the summer back into the house.
While missing the food from Germany, Sabine & Michael started to make jam and baking their own bread. Making more and more of their own food, the idea started to sell these delicious food so everybody can enjoy it too.
Both are animals lovers and when they bought the property, there was no question to have as many animals as possible. After rescuing a cat, a few laying hens arrived on the farm followed by two wonderful sheep and Kurt the dog - who became best friends. The number of laying hens grew in 2014 and Sabine stepped into the shoes of her father who is a retired but passionate beekeeper.
In 2017 the homestead added a chicken tractor to their inventory. Now, it is possible to raise meat chicken on the most natural way - on pasture.
