Angelina is a busy beekeeper and gardener living on a small homestead with a bunch of clingy chickens in rainy Washington State. In between being a mama to two hilarious little boys and wife to the most patient man in the world, she teaches beekeeping to new beekeepers and makes/sells different farm products while her kids are in school. She feels like she never sleeps enough, but wouldn’t change it for the world.
While this is most definitely Mama’s hobby, I try hard to include my little boys anytime I can. They will zip up their bee suits and inspect frames with me on sunny afternoons. We’ll cheers and high-five each other when we find the scurrying queen amongst her daughters. And they’ll lick sticky fingers as they drizzle fresh golden honey on their toast. While beekeeping definitely has its fair share of stings, I’ve found that the learning moments and memories can be for the whole family.So I hope you’ll follow me on my beekeeping journey @the_chinglish_farmer via Instagram and/or Tik Tok. Who knows, you may be inspired to bring home some honeybees as well.
