2nd Annual First Responders Chili Cook-Off

JOIN US FOR THE 2ND ANNUAL FIRST RESPONDERS CHILI COOK-OFF ON SATURDAY NOV 2ND – 11:00A.M. TO 6:00P.M. at 1 North Marigold Drive, Covington, Louisiana

There’s  going to be food, crafts, music, and all kinds of good stuff!

Cooler weather is upon us and the bees are preparing for winter but you can still get this year’s honey at our table or at Attic To Awesome in Abita Springs.

The bees worked hard this year and so did we so we’re happy to see our customers enjoying our honey. Like all beekeepers, we’re already planning for next year and hoping it will be even better. Thanks for supporting us and thanks for supporting the bees by buying real honey!

Stormy weather

How ’bout that storm! We’re gonna be picking up limbs for weeks!

Like most people, it seems, we woke up yesterday morning only to find out that the power had been out for hours. After coffee and breakfast on the camp stove, we drove to town to get a few things done only to find out that nobody had power! It wasn’t a complete bust though. We were able to pick up some new rabbits for our rabbitry, thanks to Jamie at S & S Farms, and drop off some more honey at Attic to Awesome (also without power but open nonetheless). Anyway, our power eventually came back on and we hope yours did to and that your damage was minimal.

Andrea will be at the Abita Springs Art & Farmers Market today selling honey. So, y’all get up, get some food in your belly and get on down to the farmers market and get some honey while the gettin is good. I know I’m putting some back, along with some fruit, so that I can start making mead soon. Ya gotta make it now if you want to enjoy it next year!

Take care!

P.S., If you’re running queen excluders then don’t forget to get them off soon for winter!

Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch!

Talcatcha Farm Honey is available today at the Abita Springs Art and Farmers Market until 3pm! Come on by and say “Hi!”

You can also get our honey now at Attic to Awesome at 22107 Hwy. 36
Abita Springs, Louisiana. They got all kinds of cool stuff there!

Reminder; now is the perfect time for you mead-makers to stock up on honey for those fall and winter mead projects.

See you there!

Andrea will be at the Abita Springs Art and Farmers Market today. Come say hi and pick up some freshly-bottled honey! Boo says it’s good and good for you!

The first written reference to honey, a Sumerian tablet writing, dating back to 2100-2000 BC, mentions honey’s use as a drug and an ointment. Aristotle (384-322 BC), when discussing different honeys, referred to pale honey as being “good as a salve for sore eyes and wounds”.
