Inside the Honey House

Purchase Print

I was feeling adventurous and needed to get closer to the honey house property.  An older gentleman, in his 80’s and his “lady friend” as he called her lead me around the property giving me some of the backstory.

The property was an old, booming cherry orchard, during the 60’s, 70’s and early 80’s.

In days past, orchard owners would house an apiary or “bee yard” to get bees to stay on their land and pollinate the trees.

The land housed bee hives, a beekeeper and the processing, honey house. The bees would pollinate the cherry blossoms and the honey was processed and sold on site.

Many, but not all of the owners would process and sell honey during their cherry season. This building is where the landowner would process and sell his honey out of.  This is what he called “the honey house.”

For this picture, I’m standing in the middle of the honey house.  The window looks out into the old orchard. See the exterior of the building here.

Window of Opportunity

Life’s up and downs provide windows of opportunity to determine your values and goals. Think of using all obstacles as stepping stones to build the life you want.

–Marsha Sinetar

Windows of Opportunity

The things you go through in life, they make you.  They shape every fiber of your being.   Today, things have settled down. When I look back, I see why I have a greater appreciation for wildlife and nature. Neither ask anything of me, or judge. Peace and quiet.  Centered by nature.  A place I can breathe.
