The Bee Folks will offer a 15% discount from May 1-9, 2021. Use coupon code SHEEP2021 at checkout to receive your order.

About Us

Lori Titus is one of only a handful of professional female beekeepers in the US. She started keeping bees to pollinate her small garden in the 90’s. Over time, she expanded, and included a line of 100% pure beeswax candles, and her own line of natural beauty products.

The Bee Folks is known for their unique mono-floral honeys from around the world (though mostly from the US). Each honey derives it’s flavor from the flower that was pollinated. Ranging from mild, to sweet, to savory, and sizes from 1 teaspoon to 55-gallon drums, there is a honey and a size for everyone.

With the enforced office time due to COVID, The Bee Folks has been focusing on redefining product lines, introducing new honey varietals, and expanding favorite product lines. Catch us virtually during the 2021 Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival to learn more!

Again using coupon code “MDSW”. Offer is good May 1st-10th.

Festival Exclusive

We thought instead of doing something new, fresh and different, we thought we would do what people have asked for over and over and over again…. our MDS&W exclusive this year is the “Return of Crabcakes” 200+ yards of our luxurious and somewhat famous bison/silk laceweight base, expertly dyed by Tom Garland of Stunning String Studio, all wound up into a convenient center pull ball. Adorable, and just flipping georgeous… 100 available.

About Us

Our family has been raising bison for almost 40 years. We’ve spent the last ten years developing a supply chain that brings together small mills, local designers, and large ranches. We believe that, by working together, we can preserve America’s national mammal: the American Plains Bison.

We have been attending the MDS&W for the past 7 years, and have truly loved getting to know so many of ya’ll, from the early days of us bringing our little yarn truck, “Ms. Betsy” T and I are truly going to miss seeing so many of you in person, but PLEASE, don’t hesitate to call or write if there is anything at all we can help you with.

Thank you for visiting and we look forward to seeing you again in 2022!

About Us

At Breezy Willow Farm, we have a rich history of soap making. R.J. (Rose Caulder) started making sheep and goat’s milk soap with her kids (Casey and Jason) when they were in Howard County 4H Clubs.

Her handmade soap making skills only grew as the years passed. Our best handmade small batch soaps start with only the best quality ingredients including shea butter, pure sheeps milk, and 100% pure Grade A virgin olive oil, and yields the most moisturizing soap you’ve ever had the pleasure to use. Including pure home grown herbs like lavender, rosemary, and mint (just to name a few) to select batches imparts a rich natural fragrance. A willing apprentice as a young boy, her son Jason has now mastered the craft and continues making the ultimate handcrafted soap you can buy in our store and online.
