Medicinal uses of natural honey, especially buckwheat honey, are on the rise if the amount of interest and inquiries that Red House Honey is receiving is anything to judge by. Consumers, healers and corporations are exploring the endless possibilities of the wonderful natural healing properties of honey, which cannot be duplicated by many antibiotics and drugs.
Olodum: Listen to the Rhythm of the Saints in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil
Ah, the sounds of samba in Salvador, axé drumming throbbing in the avenues! The sounds of Olodhum and Paul Simon. Just like the man says, “these songs are true, these days are ours, these tears are freeing….” Red House Honey recently experienced the crazy joys of Salvador de Bahia, while watching the World Cup in Brazil. What does this have to do with honey? Nothing, just smooth flowing life, sweet and very, very good for you. In a way, it’s a life lesson from beekeeping. Relax. Let yourself go. Why deny the obvious, child?
#redhousehoney06 RHH was at the Prescott Farmers’ Market and a blueberry grower came to tell us she had no blueberries to sell: no bees pollinated the plants in spring. The stark truth is without bees, there are no crops. The farmer hopes to have a beekeeper put some hives on her property as soon as possible, so she can get back to the business of growing blueberries.
Makes you wonder why outfits like Home Depot and others continue to purchase and encourage the use of plants which are dusted with and even nurtured in neonicotinoids. Most people don’t even realize that those cut flowers on their doorsteps are contributing to the bees’ demise. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/industry-news/energy-and-resources/home-depot-plants-contain-pesticide-linked-to-honey-bee-deaths/article19432924/
58% of Ontario’s honey bees died last winter, including 100% of Red House Honey’s bees. That is an unacceptably high level by any reckoning, the result of a severe winter, neonicotinoids, mites and other factors: www.theglobeandmail.com/globe-debate/editorials/pesticides-pollination-and-the-bees-needs/article19782564/
A Happy Honey
Christmas in July at Prescott Farmers’ Market was an even bigger hit than last year. Santa arrived not by motorcycle but by rickshaw. Horse and wagon rides went around town, Kevin blew bubbles and the Giant Tiger danced to the great tunes served up by our wonderful D.J.
All-natural honey and veggies. Yum!
Red House Honey danced like a buzzy bee around the honey and veggies and had a great time talking to customers and vendors alike.
