~Out With The Old~


“Old Yeller” and Mario after having hauled manure all day!

We finally were able to find an old dump truck to haul manure and gravel with.  The truck formally was owned by the city of Granite Falls.   Thankfully we were able to sell the old manure spreader which was not large enough to handle our endless supply of manure!  This should extend the life of our old tractor and speed up the work load.

The old John Deere is now working hard in South Dakota!

The good thing about having old farm equipment is that Mario (age 13) can learn how to fix things. 

We ended up selling the old faithful CAT and replacing it with another, see photos below.

The old Cat is now working over in South Dakota as well.

In with the new…… CAT, moving the bred sows!

Bella and I took a road trip out west to see Jessi, Luke and the children.  Below is a photo of some of us together on a hike.  I took the tumbleweeds home to remind me of the trip.  What a beautiful area of God’s green earth!!

Sweet grandchildren out in Montana.  I miss the little angels!

When we arrived back in Minnesota the girls had finished painting the porch, a nice surprise and a ton of work.

Life is good by golly, enjoy yours

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?
