Lazy Bee Farm honey comes fresh from our hives. Our bees collect nectar and pollen from the local area to make the sweetest honey possible. Spring honey is lighter in color and has a sweeter, more delicate taste. Our fall honey tends to be slightly darker in color. with a more robust flavor. All of our honey is is bottled right on the farm.
It's a beautiful Spring morning at Lazy Bee Farm! This is the view from my bedroom window. Happy chickens and tilled gardens ready to sow. Have a great day!
We picked up our new tractor today. It'll take a bit of getting used to before I'm comfortable with the controls. It's significantly larger than the last tractor, so Nancy will be expecting me to get more work done too! I did splurge a little and get the canopy (and cruise control). The canopy will keep the sun & rain off of my head, the cruise control will allow me to nap as I'm mowing the field. At least that's what the dealer said. :-)
Be safe out there!
We added 50 new girls to our flock tonight. Unfortunately they'll be sleeping in my room for a few nights. :-( It's hard to tell, but there really are 50 chickens packed in there. 40 of them are red hens (RI Reds or NH Reds), the other 10 are Brown Leghorns. Hopefully they all become great egg layers!
Now I have a deadline to get the big dome put up and turned into an acceptable coop. Once these girls get to about two months old they'll need a home bigger than our present coop. Nothing like a flock of growing chickens to motivate you. I'm hoping for an early Spring so I can build it in good weather.
Nancy's favorite 2-1/2 yr old girl, Myrtle, lounging on the generator. At her age she stills lays outstanding eggs and sits down when you reach out to pet her. Happy chickens make happy eggs!
While Myrtle enjoyed the high perch above, the rest of the hens took advantage of the sunny weather to enjoy a dirt bath under the porch. Enjoy the beautiful day everyone.
We purchased our new rotary tiller for the tractor this past weekend. It's a 5 foot Tarter rotary tiller weighing in at 638 pounds. We plan to use it this Spring in preparation for crop planting as well as plantings to supplement our bees.
I can't wait to get this thing dirty.. :-)
Happy harvesting all!
