Every year we are able to put together a bigger event, with more music, more raffle prizes, and more food, thanks to YOU, our growing band of local supporters!
It's that time of year again...time to stock up on all of our goodies at HUGE discounts, listen to groovy local music (The Jonny Gold Trio!), and win groovy local prizes from us and other local businesses such as a $200 Wine & Food Pairing Basket by Thumbprint Cellars, an evening with The Jonny Gold Trio, and mindfully-prepared goodies from Living Intentions! This is a great opportunity to gift some unique, meaningful (and delicious) gifts to your friends & family!
Invite your friends and bring the whole family - We've got a lot of kid-friendly space and activities - Drawing, Coloring, Dressing up in fuzzy bee costumes, and playing our original Pin the Bee on the Flower game!
All day long we'll be raffling off items like a frozen turkey (just in time for Thanksgiving!), assortments of our products, Wine Gift Baskets, and local gift certificates!

Bees Help with In-Hive Population Control
Yes! Worker bees know when their older female counterparts have become more of a burden than an asset to the hive as a whole and release an odor that quickly shortens their remaining lifespan!
Oldest Bee Ever...Found!
How old, you might ask? Try one hundred million years old! Yes, 100,000,000! This bee is not only extremely ancient (found in amber), but is also 35 million years older than any other bee discovered thus far! This little fella might help to understand the link between wasps and bees!
