Gary Farmer, the owner of Fiddler Ridge Farms, pours Vicki Gagliann a glass of Buzzin' Bee wine, a formula he came up with himself. The business, just south of Lake Wales on U.S. 27, has been in business for about four years. He brought his three flavors of Buzzin' Bee Saturday to the Honeybee Festival in Bartow.
