Had a wonderful time hosting a senior group from Florence SC. After touring the hives, the group watched honey being extracted in the harvest house and had a question and answer session in our honey production/classroom. Pepperoni’s Pizza ended the session with a lunch delivery of pizza, sandwiches, and delicious calzone for the group!
Sa-weet Sunday Farm Dinner
at Dancing Bees Farm in September!
Mark Your Calendars NOW for Sunday Sept. 24, 2-5 pm.
Save the Date and be prepared to “Catch the Buzz” as we turn our attention to the “Business of Bees” with beekeepers and makers of all honey-centric things, Robin and Jeff Knight at my late September On The Farm hands-on cooking class at Dancing Bees Farm.
The weather will be perfect and the fun takes place in the honey room at Dancing Bees Honey Farm in Monroe, NC. In addition to meeting the bees, learning how they affect the harvest of the food you eat and tasting the honey, you can even have your photo taken in front of Robin’s ride, affectionately dubbed “The Bee Mobile”
Nothing sweeter (or better for you) than the taste of local honey! Just wait till you taste! And then just wait till you see what we’re going to prepare – a five course feast with honey in every dish! honey, candles and all of Robin’s beeswax and honey spiked lotions and potions will be available for sale at the class.
Cost is $85 per person. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve!
Dancing Bees Farm enjoyed hosting students from the Einstein School in Charlotte for a tour of the farm. Students enjoyed seeing the bees live and up close as well as the equipment used in harvesting honey. We ended the tour with a question and answer session in the “honey house” complete with a beeswax candle-making lesson . We discussed how important bees are to our food supply and showed all the great products you can make with beeswax!

When clocks moved forward, old man winter showed up at the farm and left 3 inches of snow! Of course, 24 hours later, you couldn’t even tell!
