MEET THE COWDREYS

We are the Cowdreys and we are passionate about establishing an apiary and self-sustainable homestead in hopes of creating a tradition that will be passed on from generation to generation in Philitha's hometown of Granby, Connecticut.

We started the dream of The Cottage on November 1, 2015, the day after our wedding, when we picked up our first 3 pounds of raw, unprocessed beeswax to start making our own balms and salves. From that day, our dream snowballed into our love of bees, gardens, and art and we've been watching it unfold into a beautiful reality.
