Natalie of Turtle Mountain Tea came out to my place in Waverly last week and picked a mess of organic purslane. Now it is in her Kraut ! Check it out !
Mike and Dianne Whiteside have been a part of the beekeeping community for over 30 years. Here is a photo of Mike and his Dad from that time. Whiteside Honey has hives mostly on the west side of Loveland. Mike reports that he has had to bring in a "hotter" type of bee that can survive the onslaught of Varroa & Tracheal Mites that has devastated the bee industry in America. Look for them next to Miller Farms. Whiteside Honey brings delicious, RAW, LOCAL Honey !
