Guess what I've been reading. . . .
Anyhow, as I alluded to in my last post, there is going to be a SUPER AWESOME BEEKEEPING EVENT this Saturday the 12th of February!
Are y’all up on tenterhooks? You should be.
This Saturday, the Red Hook Beekeeper's Co-Op will be hosting a public honey extraction at the Brooklyn Kitchen in Williamsburg! We're going to bust out our brand-new extractor and spin out all the bright-red maraschino-cherry-factory honey that we have left under the watchful eyes of the bee-loving public.
We're going to be selling Red Hook Red Honey gift sets—1oz. Pyrex test tubes filled with maraschino cherry honey, corked, sealed with local beeswax, and set in a handmade wooden base created from salvaged warehouse structural beams.
The perfect gift for the bee lover in your life!
Test tube samples are only $5, and the set including the base is only $15.
There will also be a very limited quantity of local, NON-red honey from David Selig's hives in Rockaway, Queens. Jars and bottles for filling will be purchasable at the Brooklyn Kitchen and we'll fill them at $10/pound (this may change) until we run out.
Hope to see you there!
