About Us

Lucky Bee Homestead is a small farm in Murray Harbour North. 

Sabine & Michael Schoenknecht bought their little piece of heaven in early spring 2013 when they came to the island.  

We both grew up in families where the tradition was to grow and preserve the food for winter. They were making jams, pickles, Sauerkraut and canned all vegetables coming from their own garden. There is nothing better than to open a glass of jam or veggies in the middle of winter - bringing the summer back into the house. 

While missing the food from Germany, our home country, we started to make jam and to bake our own bread. Making more and more of our own foods, the idea started to sell these delicious foods so everybody else gets to enjoy it too.  

We are both animals lovers and when we bought the property, there was no question that we would have as many animals as possible. After rescuing  a cat, a few laying hens arrived on the farm followed by two wonderful sheep (which we tragically lost in 2015) and Kurt the dog - who became best friends with the sheep. The number of laying hens grew in 2014 and me, Sabine, stepped into the shoes of my father who is a retired but passionate beekeeper. 

In 2017 the homestead added a chicken tractor to their inventory. Now, it is possible to raise meat chicken on the most natural way - on pasture.
