Two Gander Farm & Honey

Not sure how many people out there try to include local ingredients in their brew. I've used local honey once in my cider with great success. It added subtle flavors I can't quite pin down. Not sweetness, but, earthiness and flowery qualities enhanced the dry cider working well with the sour funkiness that worked its way in there from the wild yeast.

Anyway, I found another local source of honey at the Farmer's Market at Great Valley. I don't know much about Two Gander Farm in Oley PA, but I did find a well written blog about them :-) (with lots of pictures of bees, hives and even a video)
