Old Blue Raw Honey Sampling Event in Portland

Old Blue Raw Honey sampling and sale // Wayward Spark

You should listen to this clip from The Splendid Table in which Marina Marchese makes a case for buying honey directly from beekeepers. It’s a little highbrow and maybe not quite 100% technically accurate, but it covers pretty much everything Henry and I have been saying (and doing) for a while.

This is an event for sampling our honey, tasting our oranges, admiring our cutting boards, andĀ chatting about homestead activities. Come see us, eh?

If you need a reminder or want us to know that you’ll be there, you can RSVP via Facebook here.

Wish I could be there for the event, but Roanoke, VA is a loooong way from Oregon!! I did buy honey (Etsy) and love it!! I also appreciated the handwritten note enclosed and the handwritten information on the labels. With 5 jars, I don’t think I’ll be running out of honey anytime soon, but will definitely reorder when it gets low. I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas :0) I look forward to your posts in 2014—your blog is one of my favorites.

I love your blog and though I’ve never commented, I stop by as often as time/Internet access allow.

This isn’t really a comment, but a question: where we are, the bee hives are put out in the pastures in protective sheds that have numbers on them. Someone said the bees recognize their hives by the numbers on the sheds–can this be true? Have you ever heard of this?

Thanks for the (possible) answer, and for all you share and do here on your blog!
