Good news – this season’s honey is now available.
Regardless of whether you are a member of Tal’s Honey CSA, I now have freshly-extracted, raw, unpasteurized honey. The first honey extracted in June was from one of my Stoneham hives, followed by more honey from my Concord hive in July (read here for my hives’ locations).
8 Oz of honey: $8
