Outstanding Honey Crop!

Despite the rainy summer, the bees have been very busy and we have lots of fresh and delicious wildblossom honey for sale. The wet weather means lots of nectar in the flowers, and so on the sunny days the bees have been able to work very hard collecting it all and turning it into wonderful honey. To quote one happy customer, "It's like eating a bouquet of wildflowers!".

Honey is one of the purest and most natural foods available and is reputed to have many health benefits including boosting the immune system, increasing energy, soothing sore throats, and more. And it's a delicious treat besides! McCutcheon's Wildblossom Honey is available at the Orillia Farmers' Market, Gaudaur Natural Foods store in Orillia, and at our farm. Please call ahead before visiting!

Finished At The Brickworks For Another Season...

I would like to thank all of the wonderful customers at the Brickworks Farmers' Market for another great market season. Unfortunately, due to the small crop this year, I have run out of syrup a little earlier than usual. My Mom and Dad will continue to take syrup to the Orillia Farmers' Market up until Thanksgiving, but the supply is getting low. We currently have only one-litre sizes and smaller available. If you're hoping to stock up for the winter, or put aside some gifts for Christmas, now is the time! Thanks again for the great summer, and I hope to see you at the Brickworks next year!
