    I am seeking to purchase raw honey by the gallon. I will be in the Mt. Vernon area on the 26th of this month, April, 2012. My phone # is 425-922-5959. Thank you, Janet Loder

      Hi Janet – I think I answered you, but it doesn’t show up in the replys, so: It’s now the 28th. I was at the Bellingham Farmers Market on the 26th, so hopefully you found us there. We will be there unil June 30, when we are leaving (not by choice, but because we insist on telling people where their honey comes from). But I wouldn’t have had gallons for sale there. You need to call or email us to arrange gallons of honey. I can do: Blue Mountains Wildflower, Alfalfa/Wildflower, and Chamisa (aks Rabbit Brush) – all from east of the Cascades, all by Stan at K Brothers Pollination and Honey in Pasco, all from Naturally Treated, Antibiotic-Free hives

    Hi I’m wondering if the apiaries are opened to public. If so, what is the opened time? Thank you!

      Sorry, no. It’s an insurance thing. Bees sting. Some folks are allergic. One person has a reaction – viola a law suit and there goes the business. The best way to get to see an apiary is join a bee group – it’s cheap, and fun – you don’t have to have bees. Then folks will loan you a veil and have you round (hard to say “I didn’t know I was allergic” to a judge when you’re in a bee group). Actually, there’s not much to see in an apiary: bees flying in and out of boxes. To see into a hive 2 options: 1) again the bee group… and 2) find out from your local bee association (an easy “google” or “duck duck go”) where they’ll next be giving a demonstration with an observation hive. Then you can stand there and watch the bees tidy the hive, feed the young, and often emerge from their cells.
