Christmas in July @ Prescott Farmers/Crafters Market July 23

Image

Slurp up some of Red House Honey’s 2016 freshly harvested wildflower honey at Prescott Farmers’ and Crafters’ Market Saturday — and celebrate Christmas in July. It may be the only chance you will have to see Santa and Elvis together (aside from Vegas). Put on your sequinned karate suit and your santa hat, and boogie on down to the Clock Tower.
We’ll also be unveiling our special, limited edition soap, Kyle’s African Adventure, scented with Monkey Farts (we’re not kidding).
Don’t forget to check out the St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival, on now. See you there!

Share our memories from Christmases past:

The Groovy Garden: Bee-Friendly Garden in a Litte Red Box. Only @ Green Things/Prescott

Image

Step into The Groovy Garden: Red House Honey’s Bee-Friendly Garden in a Litte Red Box..found exclusively @ Green Things in downtown Prescott, ON.

Open the box and find heirloom, all-natural seeds grown and harvested from the Red House Honey gardens, cleaned, dried and packaged for you to pop into some soil…..Plant these flowers and veggies to attract bees and other beneficial pollinators to your yard. Here at the Red House, we grow all of these varieties from our own seed. Every year, the bees go simply buzzy, diving into their fragrant blossoms and flying back to the hives loaded with nectar and pollen.

You can help save the bees by planting your own bee-friendly garden at home, at work, in pots or any kind of space you can find. By so doing, you will encourage the little critters to visit your plot, collect pollen and nectar, and make honey! These seeds generally require only the most minimal intervention: use no pesticides, no herbicides or commercial fertilizers. A little well-rotten kitchen compost is almost more than they need to thrive…..

Each seed packet from the Red House Honey Hothouse comes with its own story, and has been used for centuries to help, to heal and to fill bellies with pure homegrown goodness.

. Achilea millefolium (common yarrow): used by Rocky Mountains First Nations people mashed the roots for use as a local anaesthetic. Irish bridesmaids used to carry yarrow bouquets to weddings to ensure the happy couple seven years of love.

. Cherokee Trail of Tears Bean a.k.a Cherokee Black Bean: In the summer of 1838, the Cherokee were rounded up from their farms in the Smokey Mountains, put in prison camps, then taken to Indian Territory. Some 4,000 natives died during the winter journey, which became known as the “trail where they cried.” This beautiful bean was carried by the Cherokee on that terrible trip.

. HEIRLOOM Russian Red Kale (Ragged Jack)
Brought to Canada by Russian traders, this heirloom variety was grown pre-1863. (Ok, the kale is just because…everyone should eat kale!)

. and more!
