Z Specialty Food invites local residents to its fourth annual open house on Sunday, Nov. 17, and Saturday, Dec. 14, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The company — which produces more than 15 varieties of honey, fruit spreads, chocolate nut cremes and fresh vegetable spreads — has a spacious new warehouse at 1250-A Harter Ave. in Woodland.
Z Specialty Food — founded 34 years ago and owned and managed by Josh Zeldner, Ishai Zeldner and Amina Harris — is the parent company of Moon Shine Trading Company, Island of the Moon Apiaries and Cowboy Caviar.
The open house will feature tastings, raffles and giveaways, as well as live music by Davis’ Johnny Gold Trio.
“This is your opportunity to select a honey and taste its unique characteristics,” Harris said in a news release. “People select a honey and taste it. Then they try the next one. The magic happens right here. They are amazed by how different the second tastes from the first. And then they are unstoppable moving from one honey to the next, selecting favorites.”
Z Specialty Food is home to:
* Moon Shine Trading Company, which packs more than 15 varietal honeys and other gourmet foods available in sizes from small jars to 55-gallon barrels;
* Island of the Moon Apiaries, which is home to a smaller group of varietals available locally at the Davis Food Coop, Whole Foods, several independent farm stands and at Nugget Markets; and
* Cowboy Caviar, whose all-natural fresh vegetable spreads add flavor to eggs, chicken, pasta, rice, sandwiches and pizza.
