Kent & Sally

Beekeeping beginners dreaming of fields of lavender in Dundee, Oregon.

Late this summer we realized our water to the field had sprung a leak. Kent got to work putting in a new line. We are so thankful for our friend Ciaran for hauling the equipment and taking turns operating it with Kent. It was a lot of work but will be so worth it!

Last week @littlelavenderfarm hosted a soup dinner with @livelovenewberg and our families. It was a lovely evening sharing soup and talking Lavender, bees & books. Thank you @littlelavenderfarm for hosting and your hospitality. I love our lavender community and adore your farm. 🌺❤️🌸

You can’t pick your neighbors but we lucked out with these guys! Our honeybees would agree. 🌸 🐝 🌺 Saturday was their last May - October monthly farm tour of the season. We soaked in so much information and now we can’t wait to plant our garden in the spring.

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

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
