early and late summer honey

now we realize how different the early August crop and the late Sept. Crop look!! Next year we will set some of the early honey aside....basswood and clover dominate the early honey...before the Goldenrod and Fall Flowers...

Labor Day Open House

Greetings from the Beeyard!

Thank you to everyone who came out during our July open houses at the Algomah Acres Honey House! It was wonderful to hear so many stories about the church's past and to discuss plans for the future of the building and business. Well, the bees have been working overtime and we are ready to spin some honey! We plan to have some bottled and for sale during the Labor Day Weekend. One of us will be downtown Ontonagon for Maxwell Street Days (look for us by the Flower Garden) and we will also have the Honey House open in Greenland with Soap, Honey, Candles and Art for sale.

Sunday Sept. 5th from 12-4 PM

Downtown Ontonagon Booth: Saturday Sept. 4th from 9AM-4PM

Hope to see you here or there!

Sincerely, Melissa, John, and the Honeybees!
