A Honey Morning

Our hilbarn boxes this week feature local leatherwood honey for the first time - from our near neighbours Cheryl and Drew Honeychurch in Pipers River. Those of you who frequent Evandale Market on a Sunday will be familiar with Cheryl's honey bee van and banjo playing. You might not know that she learnt her apiarist skills at an Adult Education course (and that's also where she learnt how to play the banjo). Cheryl, bottom left, is pictured suitably dressed with husband Drew amongst their leatherwood hives in Hellyer Gorge. Hope you enjoy this luscious treat from the perfectly named Honeychurches of Pipers River Apiaries, and if you miss out this week, you can always catch Cheryl at Evandale on Sundays. She's an inspiration!

And the honey is absolutely delicious on porridge cooked with dates then sprinkled with walnut chunks.
