Guess what? As a result of the newspaper publicity...our phone started ringing and we have sold all of this years honey crop! Of course, we saved enough for ourselves and gifts for our family...but the part we were planning to sell went fast. Everyone called and said they wanted fresh local honey...Guess the newspaper did us a bigger favor than I thought.
Also, we had 85 youth and adults show up for our "show & tell" event at "Bee Day." So, we feel the event was a big success. Three or four persons who were in attendance came to the local county beekeepers meeting last night and announced, "We have decided we want to become beekeepers!" So, we feel blessed to have been able to inspire a few interested persons to take the plunge!
"My child, eat honey, for it is good." (Proverbs 24:13)
