It’s been awhile since my last post, tis the way when the bees are taking up your time. Winter is better for writting, I think. The spring in Deming can only be described as miserable. The desert had not seen rain since early November and the wind and cool temps did nothing for any of the desert producing plants. We brought the bees up to Colorado and North New Mexico on April 29th in hopes that the Dandy Lions would help. However, the cold weather followed us and we didn’t have any sign of summer until about July 4th. At any rate we did not make any honey down South this year. Our honey supplies are good from last year and we shoulld have some new light clover in August along with FRESH COMB HONEY!!!

I have had many folks call asking why we have not been making consistant apperances at the farmers market. I can’t really go in to details but there were several political issues with the market and essentiallty bad management has caused the market take a huge step back. With rising fuel costs, and a slow economy it simply has not been possible to make the 90 mile drive from my home every weekend. I do plan on doing the market when the bees in Taos need tending. Which will be 2nd weekend in August and the first of September. Thanks to all of our customers who by our honey at Cids. We love making it if you love to eat it.
