Hunter’s Honey Farm in Martinsville is inviting the public to their honey farm on Saturday, September 19th from 10 am – 5 pm, to celebrate the fall honey harvest. They’re offering guided tours of the honey barn, where you can watch and learn how honey is extracted from the hive and bottled for consumption. They will also be dipping pure beeswax candles, and beekepers will be on hand to answer any questions. They also have food available at the Busy Bee Café that uses honey as an important ingredient.
They’ll also have live beehive demonstrations, honey tastings, and you can try some of their new products. Plus, they’ve got a ferret rescue, exotic cat rescue center, llamas, chainsaw carvings by Miles Nasby, pony rides, a bounce house, and other children’s activities.
