A taste of the sweet life

From page C2 | August 15, 2014 |

On Friday, Aug. 8, Tuleyome Home Place Adventures took two youth groups from Yolo County to Henry’s Bullfrog Bees & PURE Honey farm.

Henry’s Bullfrog Bees is a family-owned and -operated farm in Winters. Head beekeeper Henry Harlan is a dedicated, fifth-generation farmer from Woodland. As we learned during the tour, one-third of all our food depends on bees, and Bullfrog Bees helps local farmers pollinate a wide variety of crops throughout Yolo, Colusa, Solano, Sonoma, Sacramento, El Dorado and Alameda counties.

We were fortunate enough to have sales manager and stepdaughter Doniece Woody give us a private, on-site presentation about the life cycle of honey bees, the dynamics of a hive, owning and operating a family bee business and all about honey! Henry showed us around their honey processing facility and gave us a sense of the love and care his family puts in to producing their natural and unfiltered honey products.

Next, our lucky participants got to taste PURE honey’s unique and delicious honey varieties, including habañero, lavender, cinnamon and caramel. At the end of the trip, the kids even got to bottle their very own jar of honey to take home with them. What a fantastic trip!

Thank you, to Henry, Robin and Doniece from Bullfrog Bees for making this trip fun, educational and delicious! For more information about Henry’s Bullfrog Bees & PURE Honey, visit www.bullfrogbees.com.

Home Place Adventures is made possible by the Conaway Preservation Group, the Wynant Foundation, U.S. Bank, The Norcross Wildlife Foundation Inc., and the Pacific Gas & Electric Company. More information is available online at www.tuleyome.org
