Kinfolk Honey Harvest Workshop

August 14, 2013

Last Saturday I attended the Kinfolk Honey Harvest Workshop, hosted by the lovely Jaclyn of Little Paper Trees and Blog Society together with Cake Wines. How cool lucky am I? My gorgeous sunshine friend Emma scored us tickets to this event (thanks, Em!), and on Saturday we met down a Fitzroy alley at 1pm (how Melbourne), ready for honey class.

It was a small gathering, about 25 honey folk. We sat at tables adorned with flowers, sipping beautiful Shiraz and eating divine cheese with bread, Dr Marty’s Crumpets and honey as we listened to Andrew and Joanna from Maya Sunny Honey speak of their unique product and the journey of their honey from Poland to Australia. We also heard from Vanessa and Matt of Melbourne City Rooftop Honey, who gave a great rundown on what we need to know to start bee keeping ourselves (my Dad is already ahead of me, having interned himself and planning his own swarm).

I left feeling so sincerely energised by these talks. Naturally I was sky high on golden, crumpet-kissed honey goodness, I mean that was part of the deal… but I was also buzzed by the possibility of harvesting my own and fostering the sweet cycle of nature, production, consumption…Doean’t that sound so romantic? Yes, I’m keen to get my hands stuck in a honey pot of my own.

Today, for Wednesday Breakfast Club, I used my little gift of Maya Sunny Honey on sourdough toast. Married with natural peanut butter and cinnamon, it was a beautiful start to the morning.

    Yummmmmm!
    Big jars of honey remind me of granddad.
    I have been having a paleo smoothie the last few days for brekky, keeps me going well (but not the warm kiss of honey on toast…)
    baby spinach, 2 dates, 1/2 banana, 1 dessert spoon each of almond meal and coconut yoghurt, a bit of mint, some water.

    I’d love to have some backyard bees- but I’m allergic 🙁 I do love gorgeous honey though and think you’re so lucky indeed!
    I may or may not have had a slice of Basil and peach chiffon cake for breakfast- but only because I had to cut it for photographing 🙂

      sounds divine!! What a shame about the allergy. At least you had some gorgeous cake to make up for it 😉 x
