Honey of an award
This year, Bees and Baskets Apiary is one of two beekeepers who have provided honey jars as part of an age group award. It was a difficult year for beekeepers, especially small apiaries. We really appreciate, Dave’s generosity in helping out as a Sponsor for the 2012 Lodi Mother’s Day Run. If you see his honey in the stores and at Lodi Meat & Sausage, you will know its a local product and buy with pride.
