On Wednesday I extracted the first of my honey! It is the palest white clover honey with the most delicate flavour. I can’t take much credit for it because the bees did all the work. But I have kept it completely natural, meaning it has not been heated to destroy all the beneficial enzymes and unique flavour. To my knowledge, nobody in my area sprays their fields with any chemicals either, so you don’t need to worry about any foreign pesticides or herbicides in this honey. Natural honey will crystallize eventually but heating it will return it to a liquid. Besides, honey this good won’t stick around long enough to crystallize!
Which brings me to a change in my delivery methods. One of my customers suggested I should deliver food boxes, rather than asking people to order individual items. I am now accepting orders for $15 or $30 food boxes. I’ll deliver to your house if it’s in a convenient location. You can exchange items as you desire once I am at your curb. This simplifies the ordering process. My delivery days are Wednesdays and Fridays and please place your order the day before. Call me- 922.7166 because I don’t check email regularly.
The boxes may include of carrots, summer squashes (patty pan and zucchini), lettuce, beets, turnips, onions, chard, kale, arugula, radishes,and mustard greens. Peas, beans, and snow peas will be available shortly. Potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, pumpkins and maybe the odd eggplant will be available later in the season.
