Fall has arrived here on the farm and the cool weather is reminding us that it won’t be too long before snow starts to fly! We have been canning and freezing produce from the gardens and fruit trees as they ripen.

Fred and Mario renovating 4 different pens in the long barn.

Building a pool for the farrowing gilts & sows.

Salami cooling herself in one of the pools.

This used cement mixer made fixing an old building much easier!

Organic Farm…Do Not Spray!

Sweet Sixteen Apple tree is providing plenty of fruit this year. State Fair is better though and we consumed those apples in August.

State fair apples harvested back in August!

A good apple year means plenty of apple pie filling!

Beautiful cabbages were just bagged yesterday as Sauer Kraut. Yum!

Some of our recently harvested garden produce.

 

A sample of Mario’s cider he has been pressing lately all by himself!!

We sold these Targhee bucks and they now live in SD and near the Twin Cities.

Moving the bin onto the cement pad.  Not so easy considering, we had just received nearly 6 inches of rain.

Life is good, down on the farm!

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?
