Making Honey At Delicious Orchards

Honeybees


Remember Delicious Orchards?

 

I wrote about them in 2012. It is a wonderful gourmet country food market where you can get delicious produce, doughnuts, etc. 

 

They also make their own honey right inside the store. 

 

The bees come through a tube in the wall and go into a “beehive” and produce fresh honey.
