We were fortunate that the friends we bought our farm from left us their Cider Press. We added an Apple crusher to streamline the process. Such a fun process! #appleharvest #ciderpress #julyapples

Making “Honey Lemon Apple Jam” with “Trasparent” apples from our vintage Apple orchard. ❤️🍏 🌳 We have about 10 producing Apple trees and the first two are ready for picking. It’s only July! What’s your favorite thing to do with apples? #applefarm #beginnerfarmers #applejam #foodinjars #foodinjarscookbook

Yesterday we went on a spectacular local wine tour with @blacktietours . This was the “Willamette Valley 101” tour. Amongst a spectacular back drop at @jchristopherwines we learned about our Willamette Valley wine region. At @utopiavineyard they took us out to the vineyard and taught us about growing grapes. Lastly we went to @methven_family_vineyards where we learned about the science of wine making and even tasted wine directly from a wine barrel! Kent was elated to connect with Dr. Methven and talk bee keeping. Thank you Stefan for a beautiful day! Highly recommend! #winetasting #supportlocal #newbergwinetour #willamettevalleywinetours #blacktiewinetours #jchristopherwines #methvenfamilyvineyards #utopiawine

In awe of harvest beginnings. Kent made these beautiful beeswax candles yesterday from last years bees. This morning he picked a few apples and dug up potatoes. Plums from our tree (in desperate need of pruning) are ready for jam! The chicken egg is a bit lonely but is sure to be joined by others later today. Farming is fun indeed! #farmingbeginnings #eggcited #plums #beeswaxcandles #potatoes #appleharvest #harvest

Did a little pruning on my baby lavender plants and checked on my chickens on the way back in. #eggcited #lavender #lavenderfarm

Picked up some new plants for our yard at the Lavender Festival yesterday from Van Hevelingen Herb Nursery. Agastasche “Licorice Candy,” Society Garlic, and Salvia. The first two are edibles! Can’t wait to get these in the ground! 🌸 #edibleplants #gardening #edibleflowers

Explored the lavender at @red_ridge farms yesterday during the Lavender Festival. So much beauty! #lavenderfields #lavenderfestival #lavender #redridgefarms #lavenderfarming

My friend at @littlelavenderfarm captured this shot of me at the Lavender Festival today smelling the different varieties. There’s still time to go... it’s open until 5! I loved seeing friends & neighbors and all the beautiful lavender and creations. #lavender #lavenderfestival #lavenderfriends

My husband was surprised to check on the chickens and find our first egg! #firstegg #chickens #farmingbeginnings

Our neighbors @pollinateflowers are sweet enough to host a farm tour monthly. We can’t help but show up every month to see all the beauty evolve and glean any pro tips we can! They are literally the best. #flowerfarmers #flowerneighbors #pollinateflowers #dundeeflowers #permaculture

So many apples! Hopeful the pruning & dormant spray we used does the trick to keep the worms away and have beautiful apples. #appleorchard #farmingbeginnings #applefarm
