Found this huge swarm of bees this morning. We are sure they swarmed from our biggest hive. We are happy they didn’t land too far away and we were able to place them into a new hive box.

We had to say goodbye to our sweet goat Dolly today. She was the best girl and our best milk goat when we were milking. She was the herd Queen and her herd is missing her today. Rest well sweet girl, we will miss you. No more pain and you are grazing in greener pastures now. ♥️

We entered our honey at the Illinois State Fair honey competition this year in the Open Class Division II Dark and Amber categories. So happy to share that we won 1st place Blue Ribbons in both!! The honey was judged on many different criteria, including color, brightness, flavor, aroma, freedom from impurities and moisture levels. Special thanks to our mentor Larry Loveless of Gillespie for sharing his knowledge and love of beekeeping with us.

This is some of the darkest honey we have ever extracted. Darker honey can have more minerals and more antioxidants than lighter honey. The bees worked on this from April until now. They are truly amazing!! ♥️🐝
