The Betterbee Field Day has featured honey ice cream for a number of years. This was set up by the Stevens' before we bought the company.
The Ice Cream Man is the one that makes the honey ice cream. Julia Reynolds has just sold the business, but it seems that the new owners are continuing in a similar manner. The sale was after the past Field Day, and I have not met the new owners.
I am not sure if they came up with the recipe, or if it was provided to them. We take them honey, they make the ice cream, and it is good! They usually make a batch of a few gallons special for us, it is not one of their regular or rotating flavors.
This year's Betterbee Field Day will be June 24, 2017 at the Washington County Fairgrounds. Tom Seeley will be the featured speaker. I expect we will have honey ice cream again.
