Happy Thanksgiving!  We give thanks for our Faith, family, friends and farm life.  Throw in good health, a warm roof over our heads, fair livestock prices, great honey sales  and wholesome home- grown food and we count ourselves blessed.  Thanks be to God we don’t have to buy too terribly much from town but it takes work to cook from scratch.  Cold weather makes everyone who works outside extra hungry!

The kitchen has been busy and here are some of the foods we have been preparing.

Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread!  108 buns and 6 loaves.

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?
