Hey, Portlanders, come out for the @csasharefair this Sunday! I will be sampling (and selling) lots of honey, but there will also be tons of activities, demos, and all your favorite farmer folks. Indoors this year, too. Yay.
I bumped into my rad friend @lacinato last night at the organic seed growers conference, which reminded me about how much I want to tell y’all about his seed company @grandprismaticseed . Grand Prismatic sells seed for veggies, grains,
My Smoke Signals tee from @bakerhands is here! Love it! (Also packaging is stupid garbage, but can we agree that this is the greatest mailer bag that ever existed?)
@deadstockcoffee is one of a kind. (They also use our honey.)
Meadowfoam honey that tastes of marshmallows and pure vanilla extract (compared to yesterday’s beautiful, light wild blackberry honey) #oldbluerawhoney #beekeeperdirect
I’d forgotten about Corvallis’s “Crocus House” until I randomly walked by this morning. Feels super springy today.
Local folks! We have spring @oldbluerawhoney honeybee packages and nucleus hives available for preorder now on our website (link in my profile). We will be hosting five bee pick up/honey tasting events in April and May here at Old Blue HQ

I couldn’t quite capture the glittering frosty effects on the honey sign this morning, but it really was quite lovely. Locals are invited out for honey tasting this Saturday (12/16) from noon to 4. We’ll have 25+ different beekee
The dog and the cat (Can you spot her?) have trapped a squirrel in the wheel of @oldbluerawhoney ‘s truck, and they’ve been staking it out for more than an hour. How will it end?
This is Manny @goawayfatman . He painted the gorgeous new honeybee mural on our shop door, but more than that, he’s been helping @oldbluerawhoney and me out with beekeeping and honey processing since June. He’s headed back to Cali
Loot from last night’s #portlandpreservationsociety
meeting: fig jam with orange and thyme, pickled jalapeños, apple butter, lemon pickled mustard seeds, spicy pickled okra, cranberry-plum sauce, and green tomato pickle. I brought
