Bee Keeping

Bee Keeping

Any farm could use these handy workers!  They will help pollinate all our agricultural products and produce honey and beeswax!  This photo is of my cousin Walter Strenger.  Check out my mentor bee keeper's site! http://www.bienenzumanfassen.de/Startseite


Lip balm

Our guest farmers will be making their own lip balm line using the beeswax and herbs grown on the farm.  Who knows what they'll come up with, but their creations will be for sale both on-line and in our farm store. 

Beeswax candles

I'm not sure what Annabelle will do with this.  Will she want these scented?  How would YOUR loved one put their own spin on candles?  Shall we dip them or pour them?  We will be having fun while being creative.  

Honey

How could we miss the honey?  Our 42 ornamental plum trees will provide a lovely flavor to our honey.  We are hoping to plant lavender and other crops that will make the flavor of T21 honey uniquely delicious.


Honey and Herb infused soaps

Did you know Honey is a natural antiseptic?  Before antibiotics, Honey would be slathered on wounds to

 kill germs and promote healing. Imagine what it will do for the delicate skin of your face!  

Send us your ideas

Do you have experience with Bee keeping?  Our international bee expert Walter Strenger (and Evelyn's cousin) will be advising us.  How about soap making?  Candle making?  E-mail me your stories and recipes at evelyn@T21farms.com  BEE part of our vision!


Fiber

Yarn

Yarns!  Be prepared for a sensory experience when you first touch Alpaca yarn!  All natural colors from Alpaca you'll know by name.  Need more brown?  Ask for Gus.  More white?  Mermalada is your girl. 


Fleece

If you would prefer to purchase an entire fleece of a particular color, we can arrange that.  Enjoying the PROCESS of creating your masterpiece is such a delight!  Skirt, wash, card, spin, knit.  Let's geek out on fiber together!


Roving

Roving packets that include all the colors we have on the farm will be available.  You can use these to felt your own masterpieces.  I'm thinking Gnomes!

Hand knitted items

I knit lace items with larger scale yarns due to health conditions in my hands.  This also makes it possible for me to knit neck warmers and smaller items in a manner that makes their production and sale reasonable.  

Lessons

Always wanted to learn to knit?  WHAT??? Those aren't knitting needles! Those are MAGIC WANDS! Private or group lessons available by arrangement.  My enthusiasm for this art form cannot be overstated!  Yes, that's how I feel about teaching knitting!

Guest Farmers and Tours

We love to give tours of our property and explain our mission.  When our guest farmers visit, we will do our very best to find out how THEY would most enjoy contributing to our fiber process. 

Jams, Jellies and Preserves

Simple and pure

Our preserves are made with the most simple and pure recipes possible.  Products will vary depending on availability of fruit.  What never changes? They are ALL delicious.  Guest farmers will have fun with making jams and fulfillment of orders for on-line sales.

Supporting local growers

We are building relationships with local growers for fruit beyond what we can grow on our farm.  How could we not?  Washington State has the most awesome fruit and the bestest farmers EVER!

Small batch processing

Each batch is a unique experience.  Each batch will be uniquely delicious.  Annabelle might want to add nutmeg, but Josh thinks cinnamon would work.  Okay, we'll make a batch of each.  And you get to eat their creations!
