A very special gift ...

This week only

with the purchase of a jar of our 100% honey

we offer you a candle made with the wax from our honey production.

Holiday Honey special

Limited to the first 15 orders, we only had enough wax to make 15 candles !!!

This will make a very special gift and remember the whole $25 you are spending will be used to increase our bee population.

Please visit our e-commerce to order your jar of honey

http://twinoaksfarm.net/store/preserves-chutneys-and-more

Our production of 100% honey is very small and we have decided to use the money from its sale exclusively to increase our bee population, and in this way to return to the bees the fruits of their labor. 

This honey is exquisitely complicated and sweet in a subtle way.

  Your first bites will instantly convince you that what you’ve thought of as honey until now is very likely something else.


Visit the new Apiary section of our web site to learn more

about our unique approach to beekeeping.

I had the good fortune to be nominated, by the Holmes county director Mr. Shep Eubanks, for this year Agricultural Innovator Recognition Program.

The University of Florida/IFAS Panhandle Agriculture Extension Team and Farm Credit of Northwest Florida collaborate annually to recognize innovative farmers and ranchers from 16 counties, from Jefferson west to Escambia Counties. County Agriculture Extension Agents nominate one honoree from each county. From this distinguished pool of farmers, an “Innovator of the Year” is selected to represent Northwest Florida.

The purpose of the award is to increase awareness of the diversity and innovation of today’s modern agriculture. By sharing the story of the highlighted farmers and ranchers with local and regional media, the general public will gain a new appreciation for the business of agriculture in their area.

The criteria for recognition are : Farmers and Ranchers who are innovative on their own operation, willing to work with Extension Agents and State Specialists to share their knowledge, and take an active leadership role beyond the farm gate.

The nominees are then judged by the following criteria: Creativity and innovation of the operation, Interaction and cooperation with Extension and Service to agriculture and their local community.

These photos were taken during the luncheon, in Jay Florida, where all the nominees were recognized ...

Each county had its table, all nicely decorated ...

Ag Award

They created a really nice brochure presenting each nominee  ...

Each county extension had created a slide show presenting their nominees, here Mr. Shep Eubanks, Holmes County Extension Director ...

Yes ... looks nice ... feel nice ..:):)

Ag Award

Here is what Mr. Eubanks said during his presentations :"...  is very conservation minded, setting an outstanding example of a diversified production system that encompasses both animal and plant agriculture. Her operation is unique in that nothing is wasted from the products that she is producing. All animals are completely utilized either as fresh meat, canned sauces, dog products and compost. Her operation is very low impact on the environment as nutrients are recycled and the impacts on groundwater are non-existent. ...".

It is interesting to mention that Mr. Eubanks was presenting the only certified organic farm in the group.

Thank you for the nomination and the award ... Both ment a lot to me...

Tonight I found a small patch of Chanterelles at the edge of the little wood behind the house ... I have been looking for them, our summer has been really wet and they are everywhere ...

Chanterelles patch ...

10 minutes picking, most of the time spent fighting with the jungle ...

Nice pick ...

The cutest little snail was amoung them ...

Miniature snail ...

Saute some onions (would have been better with shallots but I did not have any) then add the chanterelles, let it cook for a few minutes then add the parsley and a dash of white wine, salt/pepper to taste, ...

Chanterelles fricassee

... a few more minutes of cooking ... et voila ...

Fricassee de Chanterelles

I mixed them with a tomato, olive oil and a splash of balsamique ... Great impromptu salad from the wood .. Bon appetit ...
