The Buzz – Fall 2012

Well, better late than never!  It’s been a busy fall and realized I need to blog before the Winter Buzz is due!

The honey is in and we had a great year! Crops are all harrowed up, the last of the vegetables are canned and put on the shelf for our winter consumption and our direction changes to begin to prepare for winter’s arrival.  Funny how many think on a farm the fall is a time to start winding down for a winter break since it’s no longer the growing season.  Have you ever thought about how much time we spend in New England preparing for the next season?  Now it’s time to get bee’s ready for winter, tractors ready for snow, split a whole lot of firewood, the list goes on and on……There is no break!

At any rate, we’ve had a great Fall and are excited to share some news!  We made many new friends being in the Windsor Farmer’s Market this year and look forward to seeing everyone again next year.  We also participated in the First Church Vendor Fair, the Wade and Tea Fair, and the Save the Windsor Locks Train Station vendor fair.  Thanks to all our patrons who continue to support us and shop local!

You can now find our honey product in the specialty Honey Wheat Bread at our local Bakery in Town, Get Baked, and at a specialty brew at one of our favorite places to eat Cambridge House in Granby.

We’re also excited to say our popular Honey Blueberry Jam is now Award winning!  It won a blue ribbon in the Jam Contest at the Big E.  This was our first time entering a contest, next year we plan on entering our Honey Jalapeno and Honey Strawberry Jam.

We finally got the barn going and have added more pictures to our farm living page to document the progress.  It’s getting there….one board at a time!
