The Art of Honey

Hobby Farm Home:  May/June 2009  Volume 4: Number 3


It's no secret.  I'd love to have a farm.  Due to the fact I live in a suburban neighborhood, I'll have to enjoy visiting the pages of Hobby Farm Home which is filled with wonderful ideas for farm living.  This issue features a lovely article: The Art of Honey.   It includes tips on finding and making the most of local honey.  My favorite local honey is a deep, dark, sweet bamboo honey from a neighboring apiary.  This special necter is a favorite at our house in tea and on hot buttered toast.  The jar always goes fast!

Each batch of honey is unique.  Be sure to check out what your local bees have to offer!

We get a scrumptious lavender honey here that I love though there are tons of different ones ... I must try to take a photo for you of the bee farm (is that what it's called??) nearby. Surrounded by lavender and mimosas ...
