Local Organic Honey For Sale!

Thanks everyone for the supportive comments and constructive advice over the last year. I'm now selling my surplus over-winter honey.

Produced in Atlanta's east side, in the Ormewood Park neighborhood, it is raw honey drawn from a variety of nectars and pollens foraged by my bees from the area. $10/1lb bottle

Supplies are limited so I'll try to update when it is gone. Should have more when the summer flow is ready later this year.

Private Message or email me at gfortier@arcane.org to arrange pick up times.

I know this is a bit 101 for you guys, but after posting some honey/wax pictures to my Facebook wall, I got a bunch of basic questions so I wrote a quick article for my friends and family.

I'm back processing honey and beeswax from the "over winter" surplus and hive-cleaning (we had a very short and mild winter this year). Probably going to run out of jars from last order, as I'm passing the 40lbs mark of honey. Total wax is still up in the air (I'm not proving skilled at estimating frame weight to final purified weight), but 6lbs so far. I re-melted some of the wax and cast it into some measured blocked... 1oz plain, 1oz decorative, 12oz ingot.

Just purifying some wax bits I had laying around. This is a tiny backyard hobby, but it still made me proud when I see that clean, golden puck emerge.

I had no idea you had to wax the little guys.
