Hello everyone! We filled our shelves today with sweet golden nectar of the gods… HONEY!
People (including us) always talk about buying local. Then they begin to ask themselves, “Who and Where are these local purveyors of food?” (Besides those found at a farmer’s market) I thought of this as I was squaring up with Bernie, our bee man.
This will be the first in a series of posts about local artisans. We at Coffee Corner Bistro have a unique situation… local people come to us. I think it’s our job to help bring them to you 🙂
So here is Bernie!
Bernie has multiple hives on Midland Dr in Campbellsport, WI. He is a really cool guy that loves to chat about his bees! I love that each batch of honey is different, sometimes lighter or darker in color, depending on what’s happening with the bees. We get our honey from Bernie in large, reusable, mason jars and we refill our own small squeeze bottles. Honey is used in everything from our Harvest Grain Bread to the sweet Berry Vinaigrette. Next time your in the shop try adding this special honey to sweeten your tea or latte. De-lish!
We do not have small honey bears in stock at this time, but if there is enough interest in Bernie’s Honey it is an item we would gladly restock.
Let us know if you would like contact info for Bernie and we’d be happy to help you out 🙂
