There's nothing like seeing your child discover the wondrous things in life. The first picture is after Noah's first peek inside one of our hives, taken mid "Wow."
We now have our Sourwood honey available in 8 oz. squeeze bottles. I'm loving these mini versions of the 1 lb! 😍 🍯
There's a new beekeeper in town! He's been waiting for the day he could fit into a bee suit just as I was waiting for the day I could find a good deal on one. 😁 Of course Ivy had to copy big brother. 💖 Some of our goals in parenting are to teach our kids life skills, good stewardship, and the love of learning. Beekeeping is a win for all 3!
Rugged - men's soap. This is such a fun design to make! Hints of pine & rum. 🌲
Hubs found a never-read copy of a book on my wishlist for 50 cents yesterday! I love it when that happens. Of course I have to read it outside on this beautiful afternoon. Nothing like a bit of sunshine to get me on track to feeling better. 🌞 Noah helped Daddy put another coat of paint on the picnic and potting tables today too. 💕
I've been sick with no end in sight but figured it's about time for a bump picture! 5 months along with this little one. 💕
The fam has requested winter hats this year. I don't mind having an excuse to knit! 😁 Hoping to try a pair of socks soon too.
I'm loving the pulleys we set up on the clothesline! It makes the process of hanging clothes out so efficient. 😍
The kiddos have a secret they're excited to share! 💕 (Also the reason I've been off social media recently).
I find that in homesteading it's easy to get carried away in the growing to-do lists, unfinished projects, and fails of the year (tomato crop this year...sad!). Sometimes it takes the slow moments to realize how far we've come in the past few years. Unfortunately for Hubs, he picked up a bug on his first day back to school. While planning last night's dinner, I wanted something comforting yet nourishing and immune boosting. Chicken & noodles it is, of course! Then I starting throwing things in the pot: - Homegrown, organic garlic, onions, & carrots - Homemade bone broth from chickens we raised ourselves - Organic chicken, again that we raised ourselves - Fresh herbs from the garden - Homemade egg noodles, made with eggs from our pastured chickens - Served over delicious homegrown, organic German Butterball mashed potatoes Next up, homemade Elderberry syrup to fight off the virus. Made with homegrown elderberries and our raw, unfiltered honey. Then by request of Hubs, more homegrown herbal tea to help a sore throat. One of our biggest long-term goals is to provide as many nourishing foods for our family as possible, right here on the homestead. It's nice to see that becoming a reality one meal at a time.
Sourwood honey is now available! This was produced by our backyard bees! We never use chemical treatments on our bees. They are managed organically on our small-scale, multi-generational homestead in Marion, North Carolina. Tammy & Jacqui are NC certified beekeepers and tend to the bees while the guys manage the heavy lifting (a full super of honey is heavy!) and help with the honey extracting process. Of course, all of us participate in the taste testing! Sourwood honey is prized in our region for its delicate taste and light texture in comparison to the bold flavors of wildflower honey. The color is also much lighter, which you can see in the side-by-side comparison with our wildflower honey from this spring (see last post)! We use a 1 lb. (454 g) squeeze bottle. The bottle is a traditional bee skep shape, BPA free, and comes sealed for freshness. On the lid you'll find our Appalachian Grown certified local honey sticker! We sincerely hope that you'll enjoy this honey, straight from our backyard to your table. Local pickup is available on all of our products. Please send us a message for more info. Also available to ship through our Etsy shop--link in bio!
This summer's Sourwood side-by-side with our spring Wildflower honey. What a difference! Sourwood is prized in our region for its delicate taste in comparison to the bold flavor of wildflower honey. We're happy to have gotten a good harvest this year!
I've been so bad about getting pictures this season! This past week we extracted our summer honey, butchered the meat birds, enjoyed some garden bounty, and started back to school (college for Levi, work for Tammy and homeschool for Noah). Busy, busy! . . I'll share more on why I haven't been posting soon. Until then, here's a pic Levi snapped from honey day. ☺
Another busy day on the homestead processing about 20 lbs of cherries. These are all Amaretto & vanilla dessert cherries. A little something for the grownups around here! 😉
It's birthday week on the farm! For those who don't know, we're a mother-in-law/daughter-in-law team and both Tammy and Jacqui have birthdays to celebrate this week. 🎈🎉 Come celebrate with us with 20% off of ALL items on Etsy. Eligible orders ship free! www.etsy.com/shop/foreverfoundfarm (link in bio).
I half jokingly told Hubs I wanted a picnic table for my upcoming birthday. We've had so much going on recently that I didn't think he'd have the time. Boy, was I wrong! . . He built it last night and painted it today. I couldn't have asked for a more heartfelt gift--to see him give so freely of his limited time for something that's special to me. 💟
One of our hens was thiiiis close to getting herself culled this week when she presented with a bad prolapse! I'm happy to say she's still with us and healing up nicely. I hope it stays that way! Sorry for the lack of posts recently, friends! I'm a bad Instagrammer. 😁 Truth be told, I've just been tired. But we've got plenty of pictures to share before too long.
