2018 Honey harvest is here!

8oz and 16oz bottles of annual honey.

It’s been a long year and a late harvest, but we’re pleased to give everyone the good news!  Our honey harvest is finally bottled and we’ll be putting them on sale immediately!  We got a little more than last year, so we’ve decided to offer the half pound as usual, but also the full pound bottles!  The honey this year has a great balance of flavor and sweetness.  This is local at it’s best, not like what you’ll find at the store.  We’ve also got an assortment of hand made candles and cosmetics available in the shop too, perfect for gifts this coming holiday season.  The candles are 100% beeswax, and the cosmetics are made using our honey and wax with a limited number of additional all natural ingredients and pure oils.

Visit our shop (link below or from the ‘Shop’ link above) to make your purchase.  Please select pickup if you plan to meet us to receive your bottles, but make sure to leave comments so we can reach you.  You can pay online ahead of time by PayPal, or select cash to pay at pickup, either by cash or card.  When checking out, create an account so you can check progress of the order, reprint your receipt, etc.  Don’t worry, we don’t store any payment information or share any of your info.  Don’t wait too long.  We’ve sold out quickly every year so far!

First honey harvest of 2017

8oz and 16oz bottles of annual honey.

We’ve managed to harvest some honey from the hives at home.  Most of the hives are running lean as we’ve focused again on expansion this year at the farm.  One hive was left alone, and managed to prevent swarming, which can reduce honey intake.  The honey we pulled this year has a fantastic Continue reading “First honey harvest of 2017”

Wonky comb

This is what happens when you put frames in without wiring, foundation, or anything else and forget to replace them in time.  This empty frame should have went into broodnest, or at least between capped frames.  Since the neighboring frame was being filled when the empty went in place, the bees simply drew out the comb double-wide in the original frame.  After I cut the excess off this frame, it was good as new.  I’ll return this to the hive to recap it.
