Fred Moving Hives The End Of The Day!

Fred Moving Hives At The End Of The Day!

It’s been a busy Spring so far and especially for my husband. He puts in some long days off the farm, making money to support his family and our farming operation.  Last night he got off fairly early and he and three of the kids loaded up some of our hives for the move to his grandfathers old farm again.  They burned the grasses last year and the clover looks promising.

Marisa and Maggie plugging the holes with grass so that the bees would not escape while being moved.

Sheep would rather eat then observe the late day activity!

Our lawn is full of dandelions and honey bees.  It would be nice if people would not spray their dandelions since the bees need them this time of year.  The world needs honey bees.  Most of you have no idea how much chemical is used for food production.   It’s a fragile existence and people need to take the shortage and death of the honey bees very seriously.  The more people who raise bees, the better.  WE NEED TO PROTECT THE HONEY BEES!

A couple more hives to load and we ask God to bless the bees and away we go.

The hives this year will be divided up into three safe havens.  We can only keep so many here on our home farm.  Especially with all the grandchildren out and about 🙂  If you see honey bees in your yard, thank God for them.  Take care not to step on them or harm them in any way.  They are precious to mankind……and needed for pollination. They don’t go after people to sting them so do not be afraid of them.  Bees literally give their lives for us.

A new shipment of our Callens Honey Farm honey is in at Brad’s Market in Minneota. Stop in and pick some  up today and check out our new labels.  They moved the honey so if you can’t find them just ask!  Thank you to those who support your local small farms.

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?

    when I do see bee’s in my blooming hollyhocks I like to stop and see them work, as I find it very relaxing.

  2. Good to see you are observing the bees at work Theresa 🙂
