Bee Deliveries Delayed!



The weather in Chico, California has been cold and rainy for the past  three weeks.   This has caused poor queen rearing conditions.  Many of the queen and package bee suppliers in California  are having the same problems.  Because of this, our bee pick up date has been delayed two weeks.

California  weather has been rainy and the temperatures have been under 60 degrees.   Supposedly, proper queen mating occurs at temperatures over 60 degrees.  Our new pick up date is May 7.

About Callens Honey Farm

We live on a small family farm located in S.W. Minnesota, near the South Dakota border. The source of our honey is from white and red clover. The honey appears as liquid gold in color. Our honey is extracted using a hand cranked centrifugal force extractor. Then the honey is screened once into a holding container from which we later fill the small honey bottles. We do not heat treat the honey nor add any other ingredients. Pure and natural is our Minnesota honey! What could taste better?
