It’s pretty amazing what bees 🐝 can do! From the nectar of flowers they produce such a treasure for us to enjoy. Here is a frame full of honey that Dale was showing Gwynn yesterday as he explained the process of extracting honey. Ace always wants to go to work with Dale, so it was quite the treat for him to get to help his dad. Check out our live video while it’s still up to see the honey extracting process. #rawhoney #honeyhouse #honeyextraction #extractinghoney #summerhoney #alfalfahoney #freshhoney #honeycomb #honeyframes #californiabeekeeper #californiahoney #beekeeperlife #beekeeperfamily #shafferapiaries

My American Dream! Happy 4th of July! 🇺🇸 We started our day off with a red, white & blueberry waffle party (aka Dale came home on his morning break & we all ate breakfast together) But really these are the moments when you stand in your kitchen & look out to what dreams are made of.

 To me the American dream is not about the wealth of money you have, but the wealth of love you share. The American dream is not the simple right to live as you choose, but the freedom to work hard, make sacrifices, take risks & thank God for the opportunity to be able to create a future for your family. The American dream is creating families who honor those who have fought to establish our liberties, learn from past mistakes instead of erasing them & cherish the ability to live in this great nation! #happy4thofjuly #independenceday #godblessamerica #landofliberty #americandream #myamericandream #family #familybusiness #shafferapiaries

Yesterday was the official start to Summer ☀️but we all know the heat sure doesn’t wait. Honey flow is high in Alfalfa along with that heat. With 14 pallets of honey supers pulled today, I’m expecting one hot & tired beekeeper coming through the door this evening. Lots of hot & hard labor goes into those sweet honey jars. 🐝🍯 #summerhoney #honeysupers #honeyflow #alfalfahoney #rawhoney #beekeeperlife #californiabeekeeper #shafferapiaries
The next delivery day is this Wednesday 6.20.18. In order to be added to the schedule, you must place your orders by today.

We had a wonderful jam packed weekend celebrating the dads in our lives & enjoyed lots of time with the cousins running around! 
I am so blessed to have this man as the father of our babies. Even with his rough exterior, these babies of ours sure know how to bring out that soft side (especially those girls 😉) A big thanks goes out to our hard working, rough around the edges, music loving, all American, big ol softy and faithful daddy, Dale.  #happyfathersday #daddydale #oursdaddy #beekeeper #beekeeperfamily #shafferapiaries

Does your dad or the daddy of your kiddos sport a beard as amazing & fluffy 🧔🏽(in the words of the kids at Hughson Elementary Ag day 🤣) as Dale? If so why not get him something to tame that beast of a beard or mustache. Our mustache wax is firmer texture and works well for styling, while our beard balm is a good conditioner to keep those wiry hairs soft. We have 3 different scent options (while supplies last) 1. Pine, cedar wood & bergamot 2. Fir Needle & Patchouli 3. Cedarwood. Available for pick up in Hughson to add to your Father’s Day gifts 🎁 #fathersdaygifts #beardbalm #mustachewax #tamingthebeast #beeswaxproducts #shoplocal #familybusiness #shafferapiaries

While the sun goes down on the day, my beekeeper is out in the bee yard loading up to move hives in the early morning down south to Alfalfa for pollination. Pictures like this remind me of the days past when I used to ride along with Dale while listening to Sunday night oldies as he worked part time jobs irrigating corn fields. Oh how I miss those carefree summer days. Our life now often keeps us apart as he tends to bees and I tend to babies, but it is all for a life built together for the better. But really I do wish I was out watching sunsets with my honey (minus the bee stings 😉) #beeyardbeauty #beautifulbeeyards #beeautiful #beeyard #beekeeper #beekeeperlife #myhoney #beekeeperwife #alfalfapollinationtime #loadinghives #californiabeekeeper #familybusiness #shafferapiaries

Summer is upon us & nothing says that more than hot valley days! The beekeepers and their honeybees 🐝will begin to make their way down south to Alfalfa seed pollination with their pretty purple blooms. If you know anything about Fresno County then you know it’s going to be a hot summer pulling honey supers! But we are hopeful for a good honey crop! .
.
.
Summer is a time to be busy, but also a time to enjoy the outdoors, soak up the sun & reminisce of youthful summers living at the community pool & under the shade of almond tree branches. .
.
.
This summer I am making a conscious effort to make memories with my own honeybees & with that have decided to cut my delivery schedule down to 2 days a month. I’ll be delivering the 1st & 3rd Wednesday of the month (with the exception of Wednesday, July 4th, delivery day will be on the Tuesday before instead).
.
.
.
Along with our new Summer Honey Subscription (thank you to those who signed up, your 1st jar & dipper arrive this Wednesday 😊) we will also be adding Summer Honey Squeezers (2lb 👆🏻& 12oz sizes). In order to get in on THIS Wednesday’s delivery you must place an order by tomorrow at noon.

Sorry for the super long post, but summer sure came quickly! I will be updating the product list to accommodate family needs (some items are coming off for summer), so let me know if you would like to be added to our emailer list. #rawhoney #summerhoney #summerhoneysqueezers #honeybees #alfalfapollinationtime #busybeekeeper #busybees #californiabeekeeper #beekeeperwife #beekeeperbusiness #familybusiness #shafferapiaries

We hope that you all had as wonderful of a Memorial Day 🇺🇸 weekend as we did! It really was great to get away & enjoy time together as one big crazy group 😝 
However, this time of relaxation and enjoyment as a family did not come without a price. Gratefully we remember the price of life that so many of the men & women who have served our country bravely sacrificed. Through their sacrifice we as Americans continue to be granted the liberties of this great nation. “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13 #memorialdayweekend #thankyou #weremember #sacrifice #shafferapiaries

Since we introduced a little information about our Wildflower & Orange Honey I figured I better share some info about our Alfalfa & announced that unfortunately our Sage (my personal favorite) is off our product list currently. This means that I will be making some changes to our sampler pack which will include these 3 honey varieties. Hopefully sage will return in the fall, but with sage crops being affected this year, so too is honey production. #rawhoney #californiahoney #honeybees #wildflowerhoney #orangehoney #alfalfahoney #beekeeper #beekeeperbusiness #localhoney #localbusiness #smallbusiness #familybusiness #shafferapiaries

Good Morning & Happy Thursday! Last night Dale & I finally got some time together out for an evening as husband & wife! Much needed! We reminisced about our days of late night dancing in hole in the wall bars, riding around while dale irrigated cornfields & how I can’t hold my whiskey 🤣 Man how life has changed. But all for the better (actually seeing the early 20 something’s all lively & barely starting their nights at 10 just makes me feel tired & want to crawl into my bed😫) .
.
We also talked about business & I’m so happy to see him excited as we take more steps of growing this business of beekeeping. Dale is running 900 🐝 hives now, which is half of the total 1,800 that him & my uncle run together. So let’s just say these beekeepers are keeping busy! .
.
.
With all of Dale’s busyness, especially through the summer months, I will be making some adjustments to my delivery schedule & product list. Stay tuned for updates soon!

The kids & I took a trip down to Fresno to get stocked up on jars & ended up coming home with these plastic 1lb skeps with snap caps by mistake. While I was quite irritated about it last night. Today I figured I better use them for something. These are perfect for those honey loving kids for the summer!! So....... Are you BEE-yond proud of those honeybees of yours after all their hard work this school year? Do they also like honey? Well if you answered yes to both, then send us a message to get one of our squeeze bottles for your honeybee while they last. 🐝🍯👍🏻 #beeyondproud #jobwelldone #survivedtheschoolyear #kidgifts #kidfrendly #rawhoney #rawhoneygifts #honeybees #shafferapiaries

Happy Mother’s Day!!! 🐝 I hope you all have a wonderful day celebrating motherhood in all its forms. .
.
.
I must admit that this year brought on more emotions than I expected (probably because we are finally getting our daughter Liberty’s gravestone finalized). .
.
.
Motherhood is messy, chaotic, tiring, but also such a true blessing. There really is nothing to compare to the joy of children. .
.
.
We thank you all for your support of our family business & these little faces that are the motivation for it all! 💛

It’s May!!! I don’t know why, but April felt like the looonnngggest month! 🤪 This month we have already added our Queen Bee Lotion Bar to a couple orders & I’m so excited because they are so pretty!! .
.
.
.

May is a new month & with that comes new possibilities to refresh your life! For me that means cooking cleaner, trying to get back to exercising (ya it’s been too long & pretty sad since I’m a physical therapist 🤣), getting outside more, & purposely going out of my way to do little acts of love for Dale that really are the big things. Do you try & make monthly resolutions instead of looking at the WHOLE year? If so, what are your month of May resolutions?

Ace is all set with his honey stand. Today is a city wide yard sale & the Fruit & Nut Festival in Hughson, so we decided to just put some honey out for those driving around. Not expecting much traffic if any 😆, but it sure makes for a nice morning activity OUTSIDE of the house without having to leave all my sickies. If you are around town, come buzz by! 🐝🍯 #rawhoney #honeysellertrainee #beekeeperfamily #familybusiness #hughson #shafferapiaries

We are just dipping into the busy bee 🐝 season with hives up in the mountains feeding on wild flowers till it’s time to make the trek down to the southern Central Valley for Alfalfa pollination in a couple months. This guy is such a hard worker & with that comes time away from the kids & I keeping a roof over our head & dinner on the table. So behind the rugged beard, dirty, sticky, often smelly cloths & tired eyes is MY sweet honey 🍯 of a husband. Now hoping I get to see him for more than a few waking hours this weekend!! Happy Friday! #myhoney #hardworkinghusbands #beekeeper #busybeekeeper #busyasabee #californiabeekeeper #shafferapiaries

What makes you want to shop a small local business instead of large chain stores? .
.
.
.
.
The reason that I like to shop from other small locally owned businesses is that what you are buying really is the end result of hard work, creativity, thoughtfulness, full family engagement, personalization, seeing real people behind the product, and helping your neighbors live out the lives they desire. I hope when you buy from us you feel these things or possibly something else & if so we’d love for you to share it with us!! 👇🏻 #smallbusiness #localbusiness #familybusiness #shoplocal #supportyourlocalbusinesses #itsaboutthedetails #creativity #beekeeper #beekeeperwife #beelady #shafferapiaries

I love when people decide to order our honey sampler packs because it really is wonderful to taste each of the different varieties & be able to compare them to find a favorite! Our raw honey all have unique flavors as their nectar sources are different. When tasting honey it is best to start from lightest to darkest. To be able to appreciate each variety start tasting from sage, wild flower, alfalfa & finally orange. Drinking water between varieties is a good way to help cleanse your pallet. .

Flashback to 2016 when I made Dale model his sparkly clean new bee suit that he just got in the mail. These days you won’t find him in this full getup. He has taken on the ways of his mentor & just wears the veil when working with bees.🐝😳 No thanks!!! One day when our honeybees are older & Dale drags me out to working with the bees I will definitely be wearing the full attire. #beekeeping #beekeeper #californiabeekeeper #honeybees #bees #freshbeeginings #freshbeesuit #shafferapiaries

Yesterday we dropped off this basket on our delivery route with our products to be raffled off on April 20th. We couldn’t be more excited to have our honey & products featured in the raffle for this great event for a very special family!! (Swipe 👈🏻 for details) .

One of Dale’s good friends, Evan Lancaster, passed away just about 3 years ago (just 2 month before we lost our daughter so let’s just say it was a pretty rough summer for Dale) & a group of Evan’s friends started a college fund for his little girl Heidi! Evan passed before Dale changed careers to beekeeping, but I know that he would definitely be one of the first to volunteer to help keep Dale company on late night bee moves or to pull his trailer out of a muddy orchard. He really was that go to guy & would show up in a matter of minutes if Dale needed him. Check out their website at https://www.planmygolfevent.com/31265-LastDrive_Memorial/index.html & sign up to play or just enjoy a night out to dinner for a good cause. #raffleprize #honeyprize #welovethelancasters #lastdrivememorialgolftournament #heidi #smalltownsupport #friendsarefamily #shafferapiaries

Enjoyed the sunshine ☀️ this afternoon working on some orders. These are our 12oz sage & orange honey gift packs.

Trying to get things organized!!! The thing about raw honey is that it crystallizes at cold temps or if left to sit for a long period of time versus pasteurized honey found at the grocery store. So we have some crystallized honey on our hands right now due to the chilly weather in February/early March. Not to worry though, I’ll be getting them all ready for your orders with a warm & cozy bath!!

Okay so today marks 1 year since we became IG official! 🎉 Since Dale & I don’t have any recent professional pictures without kids crawling all over us, I made him take this one. We may look a little run down most days, but hey that’s life! ANYWAYS.....
We would like to thank you ALL so much for following along with our family beekeeping business 🐝 & for your love & support!! Since some of you may not know us personally, I thought I would introduce ourselves with a few fun facts:
.
.
.
.
.
1. We both grew up in Hughson & were one grade apart (Dale is older 😉).
2. Dale purposefully sported a mullet in high school for a while & was named class clown
3. I played the trumpet 🎺 from 5th grade to senior year (band is cool in Hughson)
4. We have 4 children Ace, Liberty, Gwynn & Alifair
5. Our daughter Liberty passed away shortly after birth due to a chromosomal condition diagnosed during pregnancy 
6. Dale is a 15 minutes early person & I’m a 15 minutes late person 😬
7. We didn’t hang out in high school but met up at a bonfire in an orchard 5-6 years after graduating 
8. Dale is a Marine & was an Aircraft Mechanic before becoming a Beekeeper 
9. I have a Clinical Doctorate in Physical Therapy from UOP (otherwise known as U Owe Plenty 😫)
10. Dale has Patrick Swayze hips on the dance floor & can sweep a girl off her feet to some Lynyrd Skynyrd (well just about anything classic rock/old country)
11. Dale has influenced my music taste since meeting & you can often find me cleaning the house to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bob Segar or The Band to name a few
12. We both wanted to get back to the basics, so we trusted in God. Dale changed careers to beekeeping & I quit my job to stay home & take care of our beautiful babies 😍 .

It may be the first day of Spring, but you won’t be finding the 🐝bees out buzzing today. Due to the rainy weather the bees don’t get out to feed themselves, so the keepers are doing their part to help them out. That means today calls for feeding bees. They feed them a sucrose (sugar water) solution to tie them over. #happyspring #rainyspring #feedingbees #bees #honeybees #beekeeper #californiabeekeeper #rainydays #centralvalley #localbeekeeper #shafferapiaries

Some awesome pictures thanks to @jaesondaniel_amdg 📸 For those of you who may not know, my uncle Troy Bunch (holding the frame of bees) has been a beekeeper for 30+ years & as you can see a few hundred bees at the tips of his fingers don’t phase him much. Dale & I have been so blessed by him & my aunt’s mentorship & support as we continue to grow our family business and they eventually retire out from their own.

Some awesome pictures thanks to @jaesondaniel_amdg 📸 For those of you who may not know, my uncle Troy Bunch (holding the frame of bees) has been a beekeeper for 30+ years & as you can see a few hundred bees at the tips of his fingers don’t phase him much. Dale & I have been so blessed by him & my aunt’s mentorship & support as we continue to grow our family business and they eventually retire out from their own. . . . . . . .

I must say that I sure hit the jackpot with this hard working, devoted, loving husband & father to all our honeybees 😘🧔🏽 He works so hard to provide the life that I really never could have dreamed up. But God is faithful & gave me this man to fulfill the true longing to stay home & tend to our hive. The busy beekeeping season is just beginning & late nights moving bees 🐝 is coming our way. But until then I’ll soak up the ability to make a quick stop in the almond orchard to see my honey 🍯 #myhoney #busybee #busybeekeeper #almondpollination #laboringwithlove #beekeeper #californiabeekeeper #agwork #honeybee #beekeeperwife #beelady #familybusiness #familyfirst #shafferapiaries

I don’t know about you all, but this cold, windy weather gets my hands so dried out. (Well plus the excessive cleaning & hand washing I’ve been doing 😝) Not trying to toot my own horn, but our lotion bars have been such a help in bringing back some moisture to my typical winter sandpaper hands! 🙌🏻 Ace loves getting back rubs & I use them on him, too! Totally kid safe as they are made with our Shaffer Apiaries’ beeswax 🐝, coconut oil, Shea butter & essential oils!! Are you using our lotion bars this winter? If so tell us what you think of them👇🏻below. #lotionbars #beeswaxlotionbar #beeswaxproducts #beeswax #winterhands #chappedhands #beekeeper #beekeeperwife #beelady #beeskincare #localbusiness #familybusiness #shoplocal #shafferapiaries
