Sorry, we are NOT going to be able to open Bee Healthy YET..our optimism was too optimistic.  We tried to work around technical difficulties…  Stay tuned!  Waiting for several folks to show up to hook up things and we’ll be ready to go!

 

Bee Healthy open tomorrow…

I’m going to use this format to get information out on Bee Healthy until we get a Bee Healthy page set up…so much to get lined out in such a short amount of time!  

So, here’s the skinny:  Bee Healthy will be open tomorrow at 10:00 am, all day.  We don’t have a phone or internet, so can only take cash and checks.  (We’ll be activating the card reader once the internet is up and running, sometime mid- week.)  We have rearranged the store and moved things around, but no new inventory this week.  More stuff will be coming in next week!  For the time being lots of drinks and yummies, healthy grocery itemssmall gift items and unique antique spoon jewelry…specialty note cards…teas and the full line of Nature’s Sunshine and other quality supplements.  We also have some of Pam Greek’s pottery, top of the line, and a good supply of homemade soaps, locally made.

Produce will be coming in Thursday–maybe some zucchini from the garden and for sure Broccolini in 12 oz bags……..that’s what I call healthy!

Stop in and say HI!  The Farmer’s Wife

Buyer’s Group, CSA, and Bee Healthy…

Business Card

The Buyer’s Group has officially come to a close.  The CSA still has room for more members.  And we bought Bee Healthy!  We are organizing the store this weekend and getting ready to open the doors on Monday, June 29th, to walk-in’s.  Grand Opening will be mid-July!  Stay tuned!

Speaking of Bee Healthy:  Thursday, July 1st, we will have some select seasonal FRUITs:  Our fresh Fort Laramie Strawberries, 80# of Washington Organic Cherries, Organic Apricots, Organic Cripps Pink Apples AKA Pink Lady, and Navel Oranges and other citrus:  Organic Lemons, Limes, and Grapefruit. We’ll also have Greybull Valley Living Lettuces and Organic Girl Baby SpinachIt is our plan that Fresh fruits and greens will come in every Thursday at Bee Healthy.  Let’s keep Thursday’s as our Market Day!  

At Bee Healthy, we will continue to carry the Valued Natural Nuts–Cashews, Hazelnuts, Pecans, and Almonds, as well as Kruggermann Sauerkraut, not raw, but a simple cabbage in a jar with no additives or preservatives, Berlin Style.  We’ll carry the Organic Salad Dressings we’ve had at The Store on The Farm.  More quality items will be added as we develop space in the store.

The best place to get the fresh garden veggies is still through the CSA at The Farm.  Sign up now to assure a steady supply of garden fresh veggies starting mid-July and running through September.  $115 for a Monthly, $235 for the Leap-Frog, and $415 for the Weekly.  We will not be stocking Lloyd Craft Farms garden goods at Bee Healthy during the summer (no cooler space, no time)…but, Bee will have some seasonal fruits, and local greens, as long as they are moving.

Business Card

Harvested 25# of Broccolini Galion X today…a Meadowlark was keeping me company and then my son came and practiced his songs and guitar strumming…music abounds here on The Farm!  It is bitter sweet knowing that the 2020 Buyer’s Group is coming to a close.  What a season, what an experience with the restrictions placed on the community for the virus this year…but we are over the hump and I trust common sense can prevail.  Common sense should tell us to protect our local food sources, and to take care of our health.  With those two goals in mind here is my pitch for joining the CSA:  support the garden, help us get it ‘in’ and harvested ‘out’ into our community.  Memberships start at $115 for 3 month…check it out!  

2 BOXES this week…abundance of cabbage for those that didn’t get it last week (BOX B)…Broccolini for the Weekly’s and a dozen others (BOX A–first come, first serve). $30
