Honey CSA 2014
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.
Because honeybees can forage up to 2 or 3 miles in search of nectar , it's possible the bees will be visiting share holders gardens and neighborhoods . I am going to reserve 5 of my hives for the 2014 Summer Smiles Honey CSA. I will be providing 50 shares at $30 each.
Depending on the harvest, you could expect a worst case of zero honey to a maximum of 6 pounds of honey.
On the worst case senario, I would supplement my Summer Smiles Honey goods, which include my cold processed, hand crafted soaps, Wonder Balms, and beeswax candles.
Best case you would be paying only $5 per pound of honey.
I will fill my CSA orders before any other honey orders.
