The weekend was a busy one! Two days at the Brogdale Cider Festival.........

Saturday was very hot and Sunday was blustery with very heavy showers. This did not deter the festival go-ers, thank goodness. We had made the decision, during thte week, not to take the observation hive as it was much too hot to shut the ladies in. We took an empty hive for Vince to discuss during his two talks he did each day.
There was much interest in our Gift Vouchers for next seasons Bee Keeping Taster Sessions. These are now in production and will be available in the next couple of days.
Sue has also started the production of her Honey soaps! We have a Honey & Oat scrub bar with Rosemary and one with Lavender. Lip balms will be under way shortly. They look and smell wonderful, we have tried a bar and the rest of the family will be getting their samples for testing soon!! Just having to go through all the legal formalitiesthat enable us to sell them at the Farmers Markets.......watch this space!
We will be harvesting more of our honey next week. The ivy is just about to flower so hopefully, we may get a crop of Ivy honey too, which went down very well last season.
