At long last and by popular demand, Carson and Bees is excited to finally offer HONEY STICKS! For now they’re available by special order and at the Redwood Valley Farmers’ Market (Sundays in Lion’s Park from 9-12). The price is 25 cents each, or five for a dollar.
A five-gallon bucket of early harvest honey was hand-delivered (special thanks to our friend Matt for pulling that off on a road trip) to the honey stick-making facility in Oregon a few weeks ago, and yesterday we got three boxes in the mail containing 4,400 gorgeous golden wands.
As I was trying to figure out how best to photograph them, I realized they were already sitting in the middle of a perfect summer still life: sunflowers from Black Dog Farm, peaches from Elmer’s Orchards, and honey from us right here at Carson and Bees. (You can find all three of us at the market on Sunday, incidentally.)
