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....
