My wife, Helen and I had a successful day selling our honey at the Downham Market Water Festival on Sunday. Perfect weather for lots of people to venture out and some good close Dragon Boat Racing from 20 local teams.
Most who visited our stand bought some honey and it definitely helped having a jar of liquid and set honey opened to enable people to have a taste. Surprisingly the chunk honey didn’t sell so well. I was surprised at this, as last year, the chunk honey sold best. Again most people didn’t know what comb honey was and some were even reluctant to even try it.
We sold about 50% of our stock, so the remainder will now be sold using the sign on the road. Hopefully the “Honesty Tin Thief” won’t be passing this time !!
