Honey Do happening on July 18

Date posted: July 7, 2015

Mixson Farmers Market hosts Honey Do, a summertime fundraiser for the Bee Cause, an organization dedicated to putting observational hives in schools.

On Saturday, July 18, the Bee Cause will demonstrate a honey harvest extraction. Attendees can meet the beekeepers, learn simple ways to help pollinators, discover how to become an urban beekeeper, and see a real live honey extraction from local hives. Jars of honey from the extraction can be taken home with a $15 donation to the Bee Cause, which has put many hives in local schools including Academic Magnet and School of the Arts.

The Heidrun Meadery will also be featured at the Honey Do event with their naturally sparking varietal meads made via the traditional French Méthode Champenoise. Their champagne-style of mead is light, dry, delicate, and refreshing with subtle flavors and aromas found only in the essence of honey. The following wines will be available for purchase: Oregon Radish Blossom, California Orange Blossom, Madras Carrot Blossom, and Hawaiian Macadamia Nut.
