Father’s Day with Mr. Caldwell

Father’s Day at Caldwell Farms was blessed with glorious weather and our kids and granddaughter with us.

I fixed him a big breakfast of his favorite pancakes, maple syrup and sausages and then presented him with my gifts for being a wonderful Dad.  I got him a honey extractor, double strainer and honey de-capper.

Honey extractor makes for staining honey straight from the frames.

We pop the frames that hold the uncapped honeywells down inside the basket of the extractor, put the lid on and turn the handle which spins the honey out of the comb.  The comb can be re-used several times.

Our oldes, Shawn, spent the day with us.

Shawn knows how much his Dad enjoys going to Cracker Barrell and gifted his Dad with a gift certificate.  We like to go there for breakfast every couple of months.

Heather and Victoria enjoyed the sunshine “together” after Heather spent the morning teddering hay.  Victoria loves sitting on mom at any occasion!!

Heather gifted her Dad with some new bibs, gloves and a new box of honeycomb.  I think once our hay is off the ground and rolled we’ll be taking care of business with the beehives.
