A lighter honey than previous presses.  I'm not sure what the bees are on now.

37 degrees Celcius today and I'm crushing out my honey.  I've stopped crushing it outside... I get too much attention from my bees!  So now I do it in my kitchen.   Should have upwards of 50 jars by tomorrow.

On a somewhat unrelated note, I've got news regarding shipping.  I've decided that I won't be shipping internationally.  This was a hard call for me, but I think it makes sense, and here are the reasons:

  • The cost is too high.  Honey is heavy, and honey in glass jars is extra heavy.  Even if I bent my own rules and packed in plastic, it would still more than double the cost of the honey.
  • I'd have to wrap each jar in plastic and peanuts, which sort of kills the environmental benefits of the jar.
  • Shipping honey on jets has a terrible carbon footprint.
  • There are restrictions in many countries on importing honey.  It can be done, but the paperwork and administrative hoop-jumping is daunting.

I might change my mind at a later date, but for now this is how it is!  If you want my honey, come to a farmer's market.
