Milk & Honey Ciders is situated in the rolling hills adjacent to a nature preserve in St. Joseph, MN. Their latest cider, “Solar Sweet Farm Cider,” is a collaboration with the beekeepers at Bare Honey which tend a busy family of happy honey bees on the solar farm adjacent to the cidery.

IPS Solar, which designed the solar farm, and Fresh Energy helped make the connection between the beekeepers and the cidery. IPS develops all of its solar farms to have abundant pollinator habitat and Fresh Energy has led opportunities for solar farms to provide beneficial habitat for pollinators including bees and butterflies. Minnesota Native Landscapes manages the flowers and vegetation at the solar farm.
