Get Lost In The Acres Of Flowers At The Beautiful Sleepy Bees Lavender Farm In Nebraska

You’ve probably heard that old Mark Twain quote, “Find a job you enjoy doing, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” That sentiment couldn’t be more true than it is for Jerry and Holly McCabe, owners of Sleepy Bees Lavender Farm in Cortland. When their jobs were suddenly moved out of state, the couple made the “terrifying” decision to do something they knew they would love: they turned their 21-acre property into a lavender- and honey-producing farm.
