Farm Update

Hi Everyone,
As you may or may not know Vicky took over the majority of the beekeeping duties last year.  The woman’s touch has proven pretty successful so far.  Since Maryland bee keepers are losing 90% of their hives each year now, and personally we had gone from 7 hives to 0 a couple of years ago, she has brought our small apiary back up to 6.  She has even harvested some honey from her strongest hive, about 100 pounds, a few weeks ago.  I’ve been asking her about putting some of her backyard honey up for sale in the market and stop being so stingy with it.  She has finally agreed.  We actually sent a sample to world renown honey expert Mr. Buzz Flapanfly and here’s what he said:  “The 2019 Rousedale Farm “Estate Reserve” reflects the  pleasure and opulence of the long and nearly perfect growing season from which it was formed by the farm’s busy winged workers.  The honey’s light but powerful structure is complemented by freshness and vibrancy for tremendous poise.  Expansive aromas of clover, tulip poplar and wild flowers are just beginning to tell the tale of this spectacular season.  While this honey will continue to evolve it is certainly compelling right now in it’s expressive, integrated yet vibrant phase.”  Ok, I have no idea what any of that means, but we invite you to try some of this limited edition.
