Honey for Sale

Folks, my little bee business is growing!  The Honey Exchange in Portland, Maine is selling my honey! This is the second year I have had a big enough harvest to sell and thanks to the Exchange’s owners – Phil and Meghan Gaven – I am learning all the ins and outs of what is needed to sell honey. Eyeballing for instance only goes so far and that’s not far enough for getting all the jars of honey (and there are many) to oh say have the same amount of honey in them. Common sense? I guess not. So, I bought a scale. Then there are the labels – not just what it is (pure raw honey), but where it is from and weight. Little, but important details that make the honey legal to sell and shelf ready for Phil and Meghan. *You are supposed to have your contact information on the label, but I am thankfully able to get away with The Honey Exchange being the point of contact – I am a bit of a private person and strangers calling up to order honey would (a) freak me out a little and (b) take up way too much time…

My uber talented designer friend J made the labels up = I do not have to use those boring store bought ones that read the same or purchase blank labels and write in the info – my handwriting is not for the faint of heart. Besides, this way I was able to put a favorite quote and some information about my beekeeping on the label – that stuff I love to share.

My friend and honey client Winky Lewis then took the prettiest pics of some honey I dropped off on her doorstep the other day – something else I love to do – egg and honey deliveries!!  To all those friends who have said sweet things about the honey and to all those who have purchased some from The Honey Exchange THANK YOU SO SO MUCH FOR SUPPORTING LOCAL!!!!!!!!!!!! ox
