Are you an outdoor enthusiast with a taste for wine and penchant for supporting local businesses? Then your interests align at the Bee Kind Winery, a family business nestled along the banks of the West Branch and adjacent to the 10.5 mile Clearfield-Grampian Rail-Trail near Clearfield, PA.

This locally owned and operated winery was established in 2011 by the Kendrick Family. It’s a whole family affair,” says
Joe Kendrick. “My son Joe, Jr. is our talented vintner and the expert behind our 13 different wines. And my wife Sherry is our staff gardener,” he laughs, pointing to the beautifully manicured gardens along the riverfront. Other members of the Kendrick clan can be found running the business website, assisting customers in the tasting room, and representing the winery at farmer’s markets across the region.

Contemplating their unique location along the river and rail-trail Joe relates, “Oh we have kayakers and canoeists pull up in our front yard all the time and folks come off the rail-trail for refreshment and to rest in our Adirondack lawnchairs. The fish are back in this river, the wildlife is incredible…You can’t beat it.”

Grab your bike, boat, or vehicle of choice and check out this great riverside business. We reccomend the Rails to Trails Red! To learn more about Bee Kind Winery, visit:
