~Cherries~

The cherry trees really out did themselves this year.  What a beautiful, blemish-free, abundant crop of pie cherries.  The bees did a good job, this year, pollinating our trees.  The frost didn’t get them either.  I’ll be processing a huge batch today, so this post will be very short!  We’ve got some cherry cordial brewing along with a batch of cherry wine, out in the butcher shop.  That should be some tasty stuff.

There is so much more going on around here.  I hope to post some of it eventually but this will have to do for now.  I’ve got some good photos of the queen bee rearing we’ve been experimenting with.  I hope everyone is having a great summer.

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?
