Honey

Our honey is seasonal so generally we have less in the winter than in the late spring. The bees forage on our almond tree and fruit trees as well as the native flowers. We also allow bee and honey on flowerthe wild mustard to grow for the bees to eat so the honey has a bit of  a spice note to it.

We don’t grow grains on our farm. We do bake our own bread. Debra does most of the cooking and preserving. Her best recipe for bread: Mix 1.5 tablespoons of dry yeast with 1.5 cups warm water in a large mixing bowl. Allow to rest until foaming. Add 6.5 cups of unbleached flour, 1/2 tablespoon of salt and mix well. Let rise uncovered until double. Punch down and knead on a floured board and then shape into 2 loaves. Place in well-greased loaf pans and let rise again until doubled. Bake at 450 degrees for 1/2 hour.Placeholder Image
