Today, good friend Paul Hinlicky, who along with his wife Ellen operates St. Gall Farm in Roanoke County, Virginia, dropped off some honey that Elaine and I had purchased from him. Paul has just recently begun raising honeybees and informed us that the first honey was ready for gathering.
Like us, Paul strives to be a locavore, and we were thrilled to support his efforts at that as well as purchasing honey for ourselves that came from "just up the road." The price is very reasonable at $10.00 a pint, and Elaine said that the quart we bought would be used to sweeten a number of our foods in the coming months. I can't wait to try it on some of Elaine's homemade sourdough bread... maybe tonight.
If readers would like to purchase some, here is Paul's e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
