Andy’s our shop foreman. He’s one of two beekeepers on staff. He lives on his farm ten minutes from our store. He has fields, vegetable gardens, a serious river that runs adjacent to his property, and he has bees…beehives, 2 of them and 50,000 bees. As our shop foreman he’s patient, methodical, accurate. Knowing him, I’m sure he’s careful, deliberate. He says rather nonchalantly, “I don’t get stung very often”. Last year he harvested 10 gallons of honey, purified and put into 8oz jars with a prepared label. Here is a photo of two of his 100 jars of honey.
When I ask Andy about his weekend and bees and beekeeping, I get a detailed report like from the 6 o’clock news. Andy is serious, Andy is committed, Andy is enthused. I’m interested. I’m curious. So, I have lots of questions. Apparently, honey comes in different colors according to the time of year. Early spring-summer it’s lighter gold, late summer-fall it’s a deeper, more amber gold.
