EARLY SUMMER HARVEST!!!
Very VERY exciting times… our first harvest is ready!!! About a month ago we extracted 2 shallow supers off of 2 hives established last year, netting about 60-70lbs. This harvest is the first bloom of the 2012 season, our bees forage on a variety of plants and this early summer harvest is full-bodied and rich – some of the best honey I’ve had in a while if I do say so myself. Its a true Southern Ontario wildflower honey. Its also packaged quite beautifully! Bottled in screen-printed reusable Mason jars, I have to thank my friends at Flash Reproductions for the screen printing and Somerset Graphics for the tag printing – love it when a plan comes together!
Honey is available now through the beekeeper (me) for $10 per 500 g jar. We have 60 jars and this will be available until its sold out. There will also be a late summer harvest which will be available in September 2012.
A couple of notes about our honey;
- Our honey is as “straight from the hive” as it gets. We extract the frames, filter, then bottle it.
- All real honey will crystallize over time, if that happens just place the jar in warm water (without the lid) until it softens up – don’t boil or put it in the microwave.
- Our honey is more expensive than others, why? For starters its not mass produced. We’re a small batch/small operation and not only are we focussed on the quality of the product we also believe in quality packaging.
