Joy in the journey…

We have a lot to be thankful for here on the farm.  Although the work is hard and plenty the fruit of our labors is very rewarding.

My husband recently installed two new bee hives and I never get sick of watching the process.  These little gals fascinate me to no end!


Here he is spraying the hives with sugar water to calm them down a bit.  (Notice his nice new suit!   Contrary to popular belief the bees are pretty easy to get along with.  I frequently stand right along side them with no gear and in three years the only time I was stung was when I stepped on a bee barefoot.)


The queen cage holds the queen and her attendants.  It is plugged up with “candy” that the bee eat through to release her.   This process helps the bees accept their new queen.



We are enjoying the spring here at the farm and are thankful for the joy!



For those who support the farm through our Farm Store, (thank you!) it has just been updated with soysilk, yarn and more!
