    Thanks,
    Pat

      closest point would be the Seattle Sunday Fremont Market (yelp has a good map) – runs every Sunday from 10-4 in the winter 10-5 in the summer (oh if summer would hurry along, I’d be happy).

  2. Wow, superb blog layout! How long have you been blogging for?
    you make blogging look easy. The overall look of your website is magnificent, let alone the content!

    • Bean says:

      I think I’ve now be at this for two years. Thank you for saying I make it look easy – I like the writing part, I like the photography, I like communicating with people, but I hate the “inputting” – all the technical stuff that one has to write to make the computers read the info and then put it on the search engines…I’d rather be with the bees. But thanks foryour nice words.

    Oak Harbor regulations on Beekeeping within city limits..how do i find out ~

    • Bean says:

      I would call the city hall. But first, check out RoundTuitFarms.com – in Oak Harbor, WA. Lisa, the beekeeper, would probably know. She’s brilliant.

    I’m wondering if you sell beeswax?

    • Bean says:

      We normally do, but a friend was processing it and she seems to have lost interest, so we don’t hae any rendered right now. and rendering beeswax is somewhere below vaccume the living room on my “to do list”. Good luck in your search

    I’m having trouble finding Fire Weed honey. Do you have it or do you know where I can find it. Thanks pat

    • Bean says:

      It’s a fall crop, so you wont see any until Sept or later. Be wary – it’s amazing what gets sold under the name fireweed. You can try Alaska: go to the National Honey Board’s website, click on their “honey finder” or honey locator (can’t remember) and put in “fireweed”. Good luck. If our friend Joe gets enough to sell this year, we’ll have it. But it’s a real on-again, off-again nectar, even with flowers in bloom – that’s nature, everything’s got to be just right.

    Hello… I sell wholesale to a variety of stores but have never sold honey. I go crazy over the magnificent flavors of honey from different sources and have recently enjoyed honey from Peru and Thailand, and ant-produced green honey brought to me by a friend who got from her bee-keeper relatives in China. I have some fun ideas for marketing and selling. I live in southern Oregon, in the Rogue River Valley. We don’t have a wonderful source of local honey… Those outlets that sell, usually have a very small supply. I am looking to help fill the need. Sadly, Costco sells imported, pasteurized honey and they sell a lot of it.
    I’d like to help provide a much-healthier honey that is also a world apart in flavor.

    I have fallen in love with your Chamisa honey, having purchased a quart at the Oregon Fleece and Flock Festival last year. I’m interested in buying either pints and quarts by the dozen, or perhaps by the five-gallon bucket.

    Best wishes,

    Charles

      I’m going to answer you on your email for specifics. But I’m going to take a public moment (comments are public) to point you towards a wonderful group in India: Under The Mango Tree http://utmt.in/ The are “a social enterprise that promotes beekeeping to increase agricultural productivity, enhance incomes and improve livelihoods of marginal farmers in India.” One of the founder has a sister who is a fellow vendor at the Ballard Market, Seattle. She gave me some of their Mustard Honey, it’s fabulous honey from a fabulous organization, doing fabulous work.
