We’re All A-buzz!

We recently noticed that a colony of honeybees had made their home in one of the stately oak trees near our front entry. We know how important bees are to our environment as pollinators (and makers of delicious honey!), so we called on the services of a local beekeeper to come and help with relocating the bees. Luckily, our UPS delivery driver, Robert Rodden, just happens to be a beekeeper in his spare time and offered to remove the bees from our property and take them home to his own apiary.

A Dairy Good Time

Maryanne Heidbreder, Bev Langhorne, Caroline Hintz, Barbie Neurohr, Beth Anne Murray, Walt Williams, Edna Deckbar, Sheila Mallon, Marge Pizzolato and Mary Jane Crawford enjoyed a tour of the Mayfield Dairy facility in Braselton, Ga.

It was all smooth mooooves and tasty treats when a group of St. George Village residents recently toured the Mayfield Dairy facility in Braselton, Ga.

After viewing a short video presentation about the dairy’s history, the grouped toured the state-of-the-art facility, learning about Mayfield’s milk production systems and even how those famous yellow Mayfield jugs are made. After the tour, everyone relaxed in the comfy outdoor rocking chairs while enjoying a double scoop of Mayfield’s famous ice cream!
