News and Notes
Ain't No Saguaro in Texas
3 February, 2016
Last year was a great year for honey production in central and southern Arizona. So far this year, there has been a good amount of moisture (our beekeeper got 3 inches of rain in the last storm) which will lead to a larger spring bloom in the desert. More rain = more flowers = more honey, thanks bees! We are currently offering 5 different RAW UNFILTERED ARIZONA honeys: Cactus Mesquite Blossom, Desert Wildflower, Saguaro Blossom, Cantaloupe Blossom & Alfalfa Blossom. Tastes and colors of each varietal are distinct and this is due entirely to the bees. In addition to these honeys, we are also offering our TOP 3 RAW HONEYS BY TASTE: Colorado Wildflower, Mountain Wildflower from northern New Mexico, and Purple Sage from central New Mexico. Come taste these honeys and consider purchasing a case of your favorite (mix and match is a great idea too). Honey is a whole food and although it will crystalize with cooler temperatures and age, it never goes bad. If you're interested in local honey as a fundraiser for your team, school or other group, please give us a call!

Hello FishHuggers! Well, it's been awhile since our last update! A lot has happened in the last few months, we've been back at our favorite Phoenix farmers markets since late October. We have a few more markets and events in AZ & NM into early December, then we're going to call it a year! Kenny has mostly decompressed from a harsh fishing season. On the upside, there were no major injuries and we're thankful for that. The downside includes lost equipment, grounding incidents, a below average salmon harvest and massive crew stress. It was also the longest season in recent memory, surpassing 100 days at sea. Definitely a rough summer for the record books.
