Building the Horse Barn – Photos of Progress

Building the Horse Barn

This is the story and journey of my horse barn build. Originally documented on my Instagram account, I thought it would be fun to compile it all here on Daddykirbs.com!

Horse Barn – Site Assessment and Stakes

It’s not a horse barn, but it’s a start. 36 feet long and 12 feet deep. That should accommodate 2 horses and a hay storage room just fine. I was a bit concerned that this Continue reading Building the Horse Barn – Photos of Progress

Monday Meetups!

Monday Meetups

Hi! Recently I started this new effort to collaborate with other Homesteading and Gardening YouTube Creators. The collaboration is called Monday Meetups.

Monday Meetups has nothing to do with the number of subscribers that a creator has. I would love to ignore that number altogether! This is all about sharing our gifts, talents and passions with other people. In the last year or so I’ve realized Continue reading Monday Meetups!

Honey Bees: Beekeeping 2016 Season

Honey Bees on the Farm

The 2016 Beekeeping season is officially started on the Daddykirbs Farm! The Golden Son Beekeeper and I made a drive about 3.5 hours north of us to meet a beekeeper friend to get honey bees in nuc hives. He was very kind to prepare 4 nucs for us out of his own apiary.

Nucs, or nucleus colonies, are small honey bee colonies created from larger colonies. The term refers both to the smaller size box and the colony of honeybees within it. The name is derived from the fact that a nuc hive is centered on a queen, the nucleus of the honey bee colony.
