It was easy. We built them a home and left them alone. Months later, our beautiful bees have blessed and impressed us with more honey then we could have hoped for.
Unfiltered, raw, cold-packed, powerful, rough, refined, rustic, deep, dark and delicious… Thank you, Old Oak Dojo bees! And thanks also to Sage, Mark,Bill Perkins and Anish Shaw for supporting us along the way.
Congratulations Aaron! You are doing great work. I’d like to taste this honey. Love, Dad
I have lived in JP for significant stretches of time, on and off since 1988. In 2012 I moved back to JP from RI because I couldn’t stay away from “my home! I love JP, and have always lived right near, or off of Green or Centre Streets. I cannot believe I’ve never heard of Old Oak Dojo! Especially since I am one who delights in learning how to make something that is available at a market…art, mustards, breads by hand, relishes, pickles; and want to learn the process of “how things come to be”. Honey is one of those treasures of nature, yummy, true “nectar” of the forces of the universe. I’d love to learn, first hand, how it comes to be. Each day I walk down Carolina Ave on my way to my office, and pass a “tuft” of lavender and think of how it must be, bees visit that each spring and summer pollenating, propagating. Little do they know how much we as humans, appreciate all the fruits of their labor, even the by products. I imagine that these bees must head on over to Chestnut St and visit Old Oak Dojo’s hives.
How could I learn more about honey making with you all?
