The Beeswax Shop and Longbourn Farm

My niece, Alli Windley Kelley has always been a pretty impressive person. Now as an adult she is blowing me away with what she is accomplishing in her life. She is married and has a little boy who will be one-years-old soon. She studied animal science for her bachelors degree and animal nutrition for her master's degree.Wanting to be a stay at home mom, she came up with a some ideas/company so she could work from home raising her son and living on her farm.I wanted to introduce you to both of them and hope you will go check them out.

  • Welcome to The Beeswax Shop! They make quality, handmade beeswax based products.All of the beeswax is local from Cache Valley.
  •  How The Beeswax Shop Started: Alli said...
    "My father keeps bees and makes some of my favorite lotions and salves with beeswax from his hives. They were always my go-to for my dry, cracked hands and lips. When I had my baby, my friend Misha gave me some beeswax-based diaper rash cream. It was a miracle worker! I asked Misha for her recipe and along with that, we decided to become business partners in this venture.

    We wanted to extend our favorite beeswax-based products to everyone and decided to open up a shop. All our products are made with local beeswax, hopefully one day it can be made with our own! All of our products are handmade by us. After all, everyone knows there is nothing better than homegrown and handmade. We are careful and clean when we make our products, both of us have extensive experience working in laboratories and we apply those skills and cautions when making our products.

    If there is a product you are interested in, let us know and we will do our best to get it in the shop!"

    Meet Alli Kelley:
We are the Kelley’s. Just a little family with a little farm living a blessed little life. I am Alli and write the blog – I don’t think Andy will ever write anything but he will occasionally pose for a photo and is always my right hand man when it comes to projects. He is seriously the best. We have the cutest little boy Abe and he is teaching us a lot about being parents. Who knew you could love someone so much?! We also have a whole bunch of animals that keep us on our toes. We love homemade meals, homegrown food, and believe that life is what you make it – happiness is also homemade.

I studied animal science for my bachelors degree and animal nutrition for my master’s degree so I am very passionate about all things animal! I started this blog to document our life and progress with our little run-down farm and to also help others trying to do the same thing. If you have questions about animal husbandry or specific animal nutrition questions, send me an email here. I also know a few things about feeds and pasture management if you need help with that. I would love to hear from you!

***Let me know what you think about her products in the comments below. If you have any questions you can also leave them here and Alli will be able to answer them. Have you ever wanted to live on a farm? What animals would you want to raise? Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks for reading! ****

  1. I was raised on a farm, and I miss having fresh eggs. I also like seeing all the babies in the spring. I would love to have bees, but it's so expensive to buy the equipment to process the honey. In fact, it seems like an expensive hobby. Any suggestions?
