Local Honey Tastings at The Joseph Boston Store
This event has already passed
In partnership with Monterey Bay Food Tours, The Joseph Boston Store will be offering tastings of local honey from The Honey Ladies 11am-3pm on: Friday, August 9; Saturday, August 10; Saturday, August 17; and Friday, August 23.
As many of you know, the Joseph Boston Store is dedicated to supporting our local artisans. Wendy Towner and Francisco Aguilera, the husband and wife team behind The Honey Ladies, were selling their products at the Gilroy Garlic Festival when they were tragically shot. They received extensive injuries and are facing many hardships ahead.
The Joseph Boston Store will donate all proceeds from the sale of Honey Ladies products to Wendy and Francisco's Go Fund Me campaign to cover medical bills, modifications to their home for wheelchair accessibility, and lost income during their long period of recovery. In addition, The Joseph Boston Store is taking donations to help Wendy and Francisco. Anyone who comes in and makes a donation will receive a free Honey Ladies honey stick.
The Joseph Boston Store is honored to carry The Honey Ladies' honey and beeswax candles. Their products are made locally by bees saved from extermination. When unwanted hives are found, the Honey Ladies safely relocate them to farms where they can feed on wildflowers and they can harvest the honey. Each jar of honey helps save more hives.
