Bees, Crops, Oil, Biodiesel - Start your engines

Posted by douglasfarm on February 25, 2010 at 9:08 PM Comments comments (0)

We all know bees pollinate our crops for 1/3 to 1/4 of the food we eat. But what is not said are the crops pollinated used for feeding live stock or other uses. Clover and Alfalfa are two of the biggest live stock greens that give our meats and dairy the Omega 3's we need.


However, what I want to write about today is vegetable oils and biodiesel. It was a sad day when the largest biodiesel chain - BioWillie close up. But, that doesn't mean you can't make your own.

Honey can be Vegan

Posted by douglasfarm on February 2, 2010 at 11:32 AM Comments comments (0)

From a letter to a friend about the Vegan honey debate,

Our honey is raw, I never have it hotter than the normal temperature range inside a hive. I normally extract honey on warm summer days so it flows without needing to be heated. I also sell other products like comb honey, which is about as raw as you can get.

It is my feeling, that my beekeeping practice of putting the bee first makes my honey vegan:

My primary goal is to make more bees and to keep them alive. So if...

Hanukkah Honey Indulgence

Posted by douglasfarm on December 16, 2009 at 9:06 AM Comments comments (0)

One favorite Hanukkah indulgence is the fried honey puff. These sugared balls of fried dough are popular at Sephardic Hanukkah celebrations and are an excellent treat to add to the menu for the last nights of the holiday. A batter prepared with yeast gives the pastry a light and airy texture, very similar to a doughnut when fried. However, it is the honey coating that gives these puffs their exclusive flavor. A glaze made of honey, lemon juice and sugar ice the puffs just after frying, sealin...

This is not a cartoon joke: the Goliath of our days can be chased away by the same insects: bees. The giant mammals evacuate the place as soon as they hear the buzz of a bee swarm.

In the end, this could be their sa...

Bees Can Smell Out Bombs

Posted by douglasfarm on January 24, 2009 at 11:02 PM Comments comments (0)
A study by the nuclear weapons lab has concluded that trained honeybees can readily detect the explosives used in bombs, even in the tiniest quantities. In thousands of trials conducted over the past 18 months at the lab, bees got the job done, sticking out their tongues when they smelled explosives. The bees even underwent field trials, successfully sniffing out explosives in a simulated roadside bomb, in a vehicle, and on a person rigged like a suicide bomber. Bees have a phenomenal sense of s... Read Full Post »
