Save the Date: February 24th – One Day Beekeeping Short Course for NE Georgia Honey Enthusiasts

Cheese and honey are terrific, even sublime, pairing choices; particularly when you pair honey with blue cheeses.

When I first came back to Georgia in 2014 to help take care of mom and dad, The Man and I took an afternoon and visited Blue Haven Bee Company, where I was reminded there are vast differences in tastes according to where and what the bees pollinated. Earlier in the summer of 2014, I attended a Cheese and Honey seminar at the American Cheese Society’s Annual Conference which was my first honey “eye-opener” for me. The Blue Haven visit, where we met Monroe Brown, Owner and Master Beekeeper with a degree from the University of Georgia’s Beekeeping Institute at Young Harris hooked me on honey… fast forward to late 2017.

Now The Man and I are living in Northeast Georgia and I discovered a Beekeeping Club that meets once a month at the church where my dad was Pastor for nearly twenty years. I attended the October 2017 meeting… and down the rabbit hole of beekeeping I fell… I have no intention of keeping bees but the more I learn about bees and honey, the better the pairings with cheeses I can invent.

Which brings me to the subject of this posting…
