Yesterday I extracted and bottled another crop from your CSA hives.
You will be receiving a 1 1/2 pound jar this time around.
I'm so excited that I was able to do a second harvest!
Its that time of year that I need to do a major inspectionof all of the hives. I won't know for sure, but hopefully I'll be
able to assess if we will be getting a fall harvest. Hopefully so, as
now that the hay is off the fields, I plan to have a neighbor plow
tonight, to prepare for planting the buckwheat. We shall see!

CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture, directly connects the farmer with the people who eat the food that the farmer produces. It provides the missing link that exists between the grocery store and the consumer. You cut out many miles that your produce endures along with fewer handlers of your food.
Using the same CSA structure that local farms utilize, I will be making a limited number of Honey Shares available to folks in the neighborhood that are able to pick them up during the honey harvest season. Shareholders will also be able to follow the hives progress on a blog. There will also be opportunities for hands on learning about bees and honey harvesting.
If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact me.
