Anyone who has ever handcrafted anything knows the deal:
Not everything turns out like you want. A few jars were under-filled (we were *really* into a podcast that day), a label is crooked or our logo is smeared ... just little oops issues that don't compromise the integrity of the product but DO make us feel like a discount is in order.
So this is a new page where you can shop our mistakes and/or things we just want to rotate out of our farm shop in Eagleville.
We'll post simple iPhone pics of each item or link to more info, since there are limited amounts of each item. Please see the drop down menu for pricing. As of April 1, here's what we have:
- Mini cinnamon whipped honey - These little jars are one of the three honeys that make up our Whipped Honey Sampler. They are supposed to be 1.5 oz of honey (by weight), but they are just a little under and didn't make the cut to be part of a sampler. Sold by the dozen.
Raw Beeswax - Beeswax is a byproduct after we harvest honey, as we have to cut the "caps" off the comb to get the honey out. We then melt the beeswax down, lightly strain it and pour it into random molds to harden. This beeswax is considered raw and may have some bits of pollen or dirt in it. The shape may or may not be like the picture you see here. There is nothing added to the beeswax. We sell it by the pound (while it won't be *exactly* a pound, it will never be under 16 ounces, more like an ounce or two over).
- Beekeeping tips/Honeyhouse t-shirts - Oh the shame. We deliberated for weeks over these "Beekeeping Tips," then didn't notice a typo in the word "queen" until they were printed and paid for. Most people won't notice it, and it's still a pretty cool shirt, so we're offering them here for $10 (vs $20 in our farm shop). Grey is 50/50 cotton polyester blend; pink is 100 percent cotton. Our Honey House logo is bigger on the grey one (see photo). Sizes and colors are in the drop-down menu.
- Sophie Allport Lavender Spice candles - These have been in our farm shop for a few months now, and since we have limited space we're ready to rotate them out to get ready for spring. The fragrance of these is "Honey Spiced Lavender," and they come in a little fabric bag. Usually $15, we'll sell them for $8. More info here from the lovely Sophie Allport site.
