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
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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 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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
