We have just bottled our second batch of Don Valley raw honey, and it is ready to go!
This is different from our early harvest of acacia honey from the black walnut trees. It has a variety of blossoms including tulip poplar and clover. It’s a fuller more floral honey than the early delicacy, but its still delicious and lighter than store bought.
Alas, there is no mailing to my distant friends as we don’t have plastic bottles.
This week, I will drop off some at Hummingbird Yoga and Massage in Bryn Mawr.
The price is $10 for a one pound bottle.
Please text me if you would like me to set aside some bottles for you and to arrange curbside pickup at our home in Newtown Square PA. My cell is 484 986 4074. Leave your name in case you aren’t on my contact list. Thanks!
The bees have had a rough year. We aren’t sure what has happened to diminish the numbers, but Don is working each hive to ensure the queens and their girls thrive!
Looking at the photo below from last year. We lost the big hive #3 in November and were able to build up hive #1 this Spring. Hive #1 seems to be struggling now as the brood and honey supply is patchy. It takes dedication, patience and flexibility to maintain bees these days.
