A couple more than a few days ago my family ventured out to get some ice cream. You can get the stuff just about anywhere around here, but, we headed to a favorite place of ours, Milkyway Farms, home of Chester Springs Creamery. As we tended to our cones I noticed a little red wagon on the porch next to some crates. Looks like they sold out of the green peppers and the honey. Damn, that honey might have been interesting to brew with. Maybe I can pick some up another time.
Two days later my son and I made our way back from picking hops when I remembered the honey. The creamery wasn't even out of our way. So, we stopped in to find the little wagon loaded up with some honey. I grabbed two 8 oz. jars, a pepper and a dozen ears of corn, paid inside and buzzed down the road towards home.
As it turns out the Exton Bee Company collects this local honey. Hmmm...never heard of them. Haven't tasted the honey yet, but, I'll put it to good use...in a beer.
