This month our Artisan of the Month is Bill Mullins. He provides our house with all of our honey needs. Some of you have seen his products in your club shipments in form of honey straws, honey candies, or beeswax candles.
I give his honey to our dogs with each of their meals. Honey is a natural antibacterial and has helped one of my dogs in a very big way with summer and springtime allergies. Our dog, Sam, had very bad allergies the 1st year we had him. He would scratch at his eyes until they were red and almost bleeding, but after giving him Bill's honey for several months, twice a day, there was no sign of anymore allergy symptoms!
Bill will be answering our Artisan of the Month questions next week. Meantime you can read the beginning of this article to see how he got his start with beekeeping.
