Thick, dark, aromatic eucalyptus honey from Serra d’Arga, Portugal
Thick, dark and tingly-good. That’s how to describe Portuguese eucalyptus honey from the Serra d’Arga mountains. This dry, forested region about an hour from the coast is located in northern Portugal, an area which is less well-known to tourists, but which faithfully preserves the old Portuguese rural way of life in many of its delightful small towns, villages and settlements.
At Jose and Helena’s: chickens and corn
Jose and Helena, two elderly farmers in the area, gave Red House Honey a sample of their delicious honey, which is harvested entirely by hand. Mmm good! Nothing beats all-natural, raw honey straight from the hive.
#redhousehoney06 Red House Honey @ Iroquois Bluegrass Festival June 13-15. Flatt & Scruggs eat your heart out!
RHH’s granny just loved bluegrass, especially Flatt & Scruggs. Nor did she ever miss an episode of Beverly Hillbillies, where they often guest starred. In memory of them good ol’ days, RHH can’t wait to get out the gut bucket and the blues harp, rosin up the bow and scrape out a tune on our fiddle at the Iroquois Bluegrass Festival. The fourth annual jamboree takes place June 13-15 at the Iroquois Locks, right on the picturesque St Lawrence River.
RHH will be toe-tapping along to the great sounds of bluegrass, as just one of many vendors selling a bunch of great local products. C’mon down y’all and see us sometime.
