Horton’s Farm was born from a deep desire to live simply and sustainably, and to help others in their quest to do the same. We have grown into a green family owned business in sunny south Alabama. Unique creations from honest ingredients for real people – that is what we do and that is who we are. No generic agribusiness factory here – just beehives, herbs, flowers, vegetables, chickens, horses, pets and the occasional dirt eating kid. Our tasty, beautiful and healthful items reflect our core values of excellence, sustainable living, education and simplicity. All products originate in our chemical free beehives and sustainable gardens, and each small batch artisinal product is made with great care to help you live life to its fullest.
The farm has produced high quality honey and hive products since starting beekeeping over ten years ago. More recently the farm began growing sustainable fruits and vegetables using natural production methods. Because neither the Mr. or the Mrs. come to agriculture with traditional training, Horton’s Farm successfully grows high end products that don’t typically grow in the deep south such as rhubarb and raspberries.
