Summer is here!

Our warm spring has moved us into the beginning of Summer rather quickly. Soon it will be time to gather honey and bale hay. Seasonal chores on the farm keep us on our toes. The beekeeper has caught several swarms of bees this spring which helps expand the number of hives. Those new hives will probably not have enough honey to collect until next year. Meanwhile, the beekeeper is ready to rob the established hives and collect the honey for this year. Hooray!

Our ewes have recovered from lambing. They are putting on weight and look lovely. Summer is a time for rest for the girls.

We hope everyone takes time to remember those soldiers who served our country and those who died for our freedoms. We often take those gifts for granted. Please do not squander what they gave their lives to protect.
