50 new ladies

Here are our new chicks! The Cinnamon Queens! They have a lovely golden undertone with a beautiful deep brown burgundy color on top.  A few facts about our girls: they will lay great big brown eggs, and start laying at a younger age than most chickens. They can lay from 250 – 300 eggs a year and are mainly a production bird. They are a hybrid chicken between the Silver Lace Wyandotte and New Hampshire.

Monthly Update: May

Hey everybody i’m Hannah, Chris’ daughter, welcome to the farm! I’ll be the one to update you on all things farm. So i’ll get right to an update. Early this week we had our first egg sell! It went great! We had so much fun packing eggs and meeting new friends. The chickens are doing awesome and laying generously, yesterday they enjoyed a tasty snack of watermelon rinds. We have some new features to add to our egg cartons that we are very excited about! (the ones pictured are just temporary) I will definitely have some pictures for y’all once thats all settled. Also, we are in the process of getting more chickens! But i’ll have more info on that next time.

As for the Bees if you saw our Facebook page, we set up a new hive last week which is doing very well, and we also added two supers to another hive that is full with honey! We are very happy about that!

Last but not least! Our garden is coming along very nicely, has of now we have planted: grapes, tomatoes, eggplant, bell peppers, peppers, watermelon, corn and several herbs. Here’s our corn, top pic was taken 2 weeks ago and the bottom today.

Nice to meet you guys. Check back later for more updates and EGG-citing news! I just had to!

Cornelius’ Pure Honey

This past weekend, we made a few updates to our young beehives. Along with an appearance from the Queen Bee, we found the hives to be in perfect health and anticipate our first honey harvest next spring.
