You can't work all of the time so some of us took a long road trip to Nebraska, via every dirt road we could find, to attend her first bridal shower.

Nothing quite like the back roads of Nebraska. Travel at your own risk. My Durango goes through pretty much anything!!!

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?
