Posts Tagged ‘San Joaquin Valley’

   On the way to my family’s house the other evening, I passed one of our local strawberry patches.  It came to me as the sweet perfume of sun-ripened berries wafted in the window on the balmy summer air…It’s that time of year again…

Time for shorts and flip flops, farmers markets and county fairs, fresh fruits and veggies, canning and preserving, frolicking in the garden, and chowing down on all the local goodness you can get your hands on!

Here in the valley we’re very lucky to have such a dazzling array of produce to choose from!

You can put a face and warm smile with what fills your plate, by visiting a Fruitstand or Farmer’s Market in your area….

If you prefer stalking your own goodies in their natural habitat, you can find a You-Pick Farm in your county…

A CSA is also a convenient option which supports your local farmers…

And if you’re feeling especially adventurous, you can always grow some fruits and veggies of your own…You don’t have to have 40 acres, just a few pots or old buckets on the porch will do!

Whatever you choose, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing where your food came from and who grew it…not to mention nothing compares to the taste of fresh veggies and fruit!

Or the smell of it on the breeze for that matter…Happy foraging!

It’s a bee~luscious lemonade you’ll be reaching for year-round!

For the past year, our family here at Local Choices has been working hard at starting a new beverage business and getting our honey lemonade in a bottle.  It has been a dream of ours for a year, and it so exciting that we are days away from being ready to sell!
To help convince buyers to put us in stores we are leaning on our social media presence to create
demand.  If you would be so kind…please like our Facebook Page, follow us on Twitter or Pinterest.  We’ll be posting important information on the state of our precious bees, healthy local food companies, and the continuing story of Hey Honey!
Hey Honey!  Artisanal Lemonade is the only lemonade that is sweetened 100% with California wildcrafted
honey.  We will strive to support our local California and USA economy with organic lemon juice, honey, organic purees and organic extracts, we never use additives, preservatives, anything artificial or from concentrate.
We will be in a bottle soon and have secured distribution in health food stores in Santa Cruz, San Francisco and
San Rafael California.  If you live in the area keep an eye out for our lemonades this summer!
In addition to the original lemonade we’ll also have a decadent Strawberry Basil and a refreshing Lemon Lime Mint.
Thank you for supporting our family start-up!  We are looking forward to bringing you delicious
alternatives to sugary drinks and soda that you can feel good about giving to your family!
 Have a bee~utiful day….The Hey Honey! Team!
