Two weekends ago, we were happy to be out at Dorothy Lane Market, Centerville's annual Farmer's Market showcasing some of our produce, as well as market specials like fresh cut bouquets and blackberry simple syrup. We are looking forward to seeing all of you at Dorothy Lane Market, Oakwood, this Saturday, August 27 from 10am-1pm for their annual Farmer's Market. We will be bringing some first of the season Acorn squash, lettuce blends, fresh herbs and lavender bouquets. We will also have some of our blackberry simple syrup, made at the farm using our blackberries! We are so excited about this product and the many creative ways it can be used to dress up anything from tea and lemonade, to craft cocktails!
Last week we began harvesting our bi -color sweet corn in between the late summer thunderstorms. It felt like Spring arrived in August, and everything grew quickly last week, especially the weeds! The heavy rain and thunderstorms didn't allow us much time to get in the fields, other than to harvest. However, we picked and delivered several hundred ears of corn to Dorothy Lane Market and Whole Foods Cincinnati, setting new record highs for sales last week.
When the sun finally came back, at the end of the week, we were able to pull some of the honey from our hives. We only take a small amount of honey from our bees, and leave the rest to help sustain them through the winter. This seems to work well for our bees, and it gives us enough honey for ourselves, as well!
