**Welcome……..May God bless your day!**
It’s been a busy Spring so far and especially for my husband. He puts in some long days off the farm, making money to support his family and our farming operation. Last night he got off fairly early and he and three of the kids loaded up some of our hives for the move to his grandfathers old farm again. They burned the grasses last year and the clover looks promising.
Our lawn is full of dandelions and honey bees. It would be nice if people would not spray their dandelions since the bees need them this time of year. The world needs honey bees. Most of you have no idea how much chemical is used for food production. It’s a fragile existence and people need to take the shortage and death of the honey bees very seriously. The more people who raise bees, the better. WE NEED TO PROTECT THE HONEY BEES!
The hives this year will be divided up into three safe havens. We can only keep so many here on our home farm. Especially with all the grandchildren out and about 🙂 If you see honey bees in your yard, thank God for them. Take care not to step on them or harm them in any way. They are precious to mankind……and needed for pollination. They don’t go after people to sting them so do not be afraid of them. Bees literally give their lives for us.
A new shipment of our Callens Honey Farm honey is in at Brad’s Market in Minneota. Stop in and pick some up today and check out our new labels. They moved the honey so if you can’t find them just ask! Thank you to those who support your local small farms.
when I do see bee’s in my blooming hollyhocks I like to stop and see them work, as I find it very relaxing.
Good to see you are observing the bees at work Theresa 🙂
