eil's honey bees produce a caramel colored wildflower honey that is mild and delicious.  He uses absolutely no pesticides or chemicals on the hives or bees.  And, does no filtering or heating during the extraction process.  It is the best (we're slightly biased) honey you can buy!  At present we have 1 lb. plastic squeeze containers for sale at $8.00 plus shipping.  Checks or cash accepted, money orders preferred.
Please email for availability.

ere's a few photos from the April 2012 yearly spring package bee pickup at Race Brothers Farm Store in Springfield, MO.  As I remember it was 300 packages, 200 of which we distributed there, the remainder hived here and picked up on the farm a week to two later.

eil, with the assistance of WWOOF volunteer Luis, have already harvested some 2011 season honey.  The honey, so far, is darker than the 2010 extraction.



-- June 2010 --
WWOOF volunteer by the name of John Iacona helped Neil with honey extracting in late June.  You can tell it was hot.  Most of our days this summer after about noon have been in the 100's with the heat index.  REALLY hot.  John stayed a few days and worked the bees (first time for bee keeping) and the gardens, and was a great help and good company.
