We want to thank everyone who came out to the grand opening/ open house held at our honey shop last week.
It was great to meet many of you. Congratulations to Sarah M. from Fort Erie, Ontario, who won a fabulous gift basket full of our great products. We had a lot of fun doing this. We hope to have an open house again during the Christmas holiday season. Look for an announcement for date and time coming in the fall.
It's Canada Day this weekend in Canada. That means a long-weekend for most of us. Enjoy time with your family and friends. Check out our Maple Leaf Beeswax Candle.
