New Additions

We have two new additions to the farm this week...

a third honey bee hive, and a kitten named Bunny!

a oe,
Both are adjusting well to their new home.

The new hive is a split from one of our existing hives that has been very active... perhaps too much so. We added a queen and three frames of bees and brood (soon-to-be bees) to the new hives boxes and are giving them time to get used to the new queen. This weekend we plan to do another honey extraction from the other hives and you'll receive a sample of this summer honey in shares this Sunday.

If you haven't had an opportunity to visit the farm yet this season, consider doing a Sunday pick up sometime soon. Check out the bee hives, grab some of the first raspberries from the berry patch, see the soon-to-be chicken coop, and wander around the produce garden to watch the progress of your summer veggies.


Check back on Sunday for an item list, recipes and hints for week six.
