Storing honey in the fridge can accelerate crystallization but this does not affect its quality. A constant temp is most important and “in the fridge” is the most stable place to store it during these colder temps. Also have more jars stored in the house at around 70 degrees if you prefer those!

Happy to report hens a laying again— with a lot of crowing over—after relocating and adjusting to the diminishing daylight. The chicklets born over the summer feature at least one rooster that is trying to crow but as yet is indistinguishable from the rest. They are working on cleaning up the gardens, stealing grain from the Guinea Hogs and digging dust bath holes in the yard. Out in the chicklet nursery the future 2017 layers are venturing outside and trying out their little wings.
Eggs available through fall, winter, spring & summer
2016 price —$4.50 per dozen.
American Guinea Hog Piglets: Small, black, cold hardy, rare heritage breed pigs are super easy keepers. Excellent foragers, pasture grazers; enjoy grass, weeds, kitchen scraps, produce & eating hay in winter. Known as a lard pig they fatten easily, requiring little grain—do not overfeed. A thrifty hog to raise; friendly, with a docile nature, good with people, most pets & farm animals. Adult American Guinea Hogs range in manageable sizes from 150–300 lbs, are 22” to 27” tall, need minimal shelter and are easily trained to electric fence.
American Guinea Hogs provide Gourmet Quality Pork. Not the other white meat; well marbled, dark red, tender, fantastically tasty and listed on the Slow Food USA: Ark of Taste, ranking high in taste tests.
