With Christmas now firmly in the rear-view mirror, it's time to start spring planning and nothing says spring quite like a garden!
As we begin to decide which fruits, veggies and flowers we will plant, we definitely keep an eye on those that are "bee friendly" and those that are compatible with one another. Doing so, and applying "natural" fertilizer insures the maximum output from each plant.
So what does all of this planning have to do with you? Well, this year we will be canning from our garden and selling those goods in our shop! Stay tuned for what we have to offer...we'll announce it here as soon as we've finished our planning.
In the meantime, we have fresh eggs for sale. Our brown eggs come from Rhode Island Reds, Buff Orphingtons and Barred Rock hens--hens that know how to handle Virginia's winter weather! We feed our girls only organic feed and scratch and never use antibiotics. You won't find a fresher or healthier egg in a grocery store.
As for honey? We're adding 10 more hives to our bee yard with the hope that next year we will have enough honey to get us through Christmas 2016 and maybe even the following spring! We know we disappointed a lot of folks when we ran out in October--during our first fall opening--but we are taking a number of steps to make sure that doesn't happen again. More honey bees is step number one!
Oh, one last thing! We are planning on mating our Nigerian Dwarf Goat, Ariel, this spring which means we should have baby goats frolicking this fall! Bring the kids, pick out your pumpkin and watch the baby goats play while you sip on your warm apple cider.
We can't wait to have you back!
