Mother Earth News Magazine

As a blogger for Mother Earth News, I'm happy to promote their magazine.  I discovered it about 8 years ago and was immediately hooked.  It offers a wealth of information on homesteading, gardening, self-sufficiency, and DIY projects.  Click this link to order your subscription through our affiliate link and support The Happy Hive with your purchase!

As part of our efforts to reduce, reuse, and recycle, we sell clothes we have outgrown and try to reduce our closet by selling on Poshmark.  Check out what we have available through "My Closet."

Our goal is to eventually make our homemade food and health products, incluing our honey, available for sale. For now, our friends and family are serving as informal review teams at every holiday and group meal!


We're upping our honey production by adding a few more hives.  We use this golden elixer for its natural sweetness as well as its healing capacities.


We make low sugar versions of our favorite jams, jellies, sauces, and salsas - many from the fruits grown on our homestead.


Beeswax and honey are the key ingredients in all natural skin care and wellness products. We're currently developing our secret recipes :)
