Back in Business

Well after a 2 year hiatus to give the trees a chance to grow, we are back in business.  The trees have come back strong and we will have great selection this year.  The weather was good to our bees and we had a good harvest this fall.  We are all looking forward to seeing everyone again this year. We’ll have the hot cocoa waiting for you!


Here we go again

Well the snow is still fallling but spring is just around the corner.  Christmas trees sold out fast last year, but we will have more for 2011!

We still have a great stock of honey and all sizes and shapes.

We are eager for a warm spell so we can crack open the hives and see how they fared the long winter.


Tis the season

Well folks its that time of year again. The bees are clustered, the trees are pruned and snow is on the way. Harvest time is over and now is the time we really enjoy the fruits, sweets and bows of our labor.

It was a spectacular year for the bees this year. Although we started out with few hives surviving from last winter, we were able to build back to normal size AND get a record crop of honey!  Sales are steady and we shoul have product through until spring at least.

The xmas trees faired well, and although it was almost perfect weatherwise, we still lost a few too many small trees to mother nature. It's a small price to pay to be chemical free. The trees are all pruned and folks are already starting to tag thier trees before thee best ones are gone.

Speaking of labor, Our new baby, Audrey Madison will be joining us for the christmas tree season this year.  It starts on 12/4 runs until we are sold out. 

We are still basking on the glow of celebrityism from the segement that was done on our farm on NPR's Living on Earth. You can still hear it if you go to the archives. Check it out....
