Honey Sticky Buns

Honey Sticky Buns

Oh my goodness….Granny Bee sure has been busy baking! September is National Honey Month and what better way to celebrate than cooking and baking with honey? Here’s a plate of freshly baked sticky buns….made with lots of butter and HONEY, of course! We’ve got three plates of these at the market today. 🙂

Dutch Apple Pie with honey

Granny Bee’s Pennsylvania Dutch Apple Crumb Pie, full of mountain apples, sugar, spices and HONEY

Farmer Bob and I brought almost two bushels of apples back from the north Georgia mountains, so that means more Pennsylvania Dutch Apple Crumb pies at market this afternoon! 

Of course, we’ll have our beautiful jars full of Granny Bee’s delicious golden honey.

 I’ve been busy making soap with our own honey and beeswax, so we have a full stock of our good-for-your-skin natural soaps, filled with botanicals, activated charcoal, natural colorants, and your favorite scents and essential oils.

While you’re here, take our guided farm tour at 2:00. It’s just $5, and today we’re going to donate all our tour fees to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund. (Read about OUR flood experience HERE.)

Pet Pork Chop, Martha and Gracie, and feel how soft Clarence’s ears and Peanut Butter’s nose are.

There’s more…more chickens and sheep to pet, our guardian dogs and border collies….honey bees busy in their apiaries, honey extracting equipment, farm tractors, and ducks in the pond. We love to share our farm, so come see us this and every Sunday afternoon from 1:00-5:00. Guided tour is at 2:00 (get here a few minutes early).

We’re at 5066 Rowell RD, Lancaster, just about 20-25 minutes from Lancaster, Waxhaw, and Monroe. We have a public restroom and hand washing station, bottled water for sale (or bring your own), our own farm market, gentle walking paths, and lots of fun things for the whole family to enjoy together! It’s another beautiful day on Fox Trot Farm!

EIEIO!
