Organic honey producer, beekeeper set for Slow Food event Jan. 28

Professional beekeeper Geri Hens runs Hens Honey Bee Farm in Pendleton, the only New York State producer of raw organic New York native wildflower and tree varietal honey.

On Monday, she’ll be speaking to a gathering of Slow Food Buffalo Niagara, the local chapter of a national group focused on food policy and local producers.

From the release:

“In addition to a discussion of her work as a beekeeper and the lives of bees, Hens will provide an overview of new directions in farming and farm products in Western New York and New York State. She also will have products from her farm to sell after the meeting.

For more than 20 years, Hens Honey Bee Farm has met or exceeded USDA standards for organic honey production for bees, honey and beeswax. Hens’ bees produce 16 varieties of native/indigenous vegetation liquid, creamed and comb."

The event, free and open to the public, is set for 6:30 p.m. Jan. 28, in Horsefeathers, 346 Connecticut St. Light refreshments from Martin Cooks and Buffalo Cheese Traders will be served beginning at 6 p.m.
