It's Feature Friday again! This week we're getting to know Jayne Barnes from Honeyrun Farm.
Q: What's the story behind your business, and how did you get started?
A: In 2003, I decided to give my boyfriend Isaac a beehive for Christmas. What started as a simple hobby quickly turned into a sideline business, and now a full-time job and way of life. After getting married two years later, we have steadily increased our amount of hives every year, now keeping over 400 hives of bees and selling our honey at local farmers markets, through grocery stores, online, and at Celebrate Local. I also make pure beeswax candles using the extra beeswax that is a natural by-product of our honey extraction.

Q: What do you like about being part of the Celebrate Local family?
A: We hope to share our natural products with those who appreciate the simple things in life, and love to educate others about the gentle honeybee and her gifts. We appreciate the focus of locally made products at Celebrate Local and are better able to serve our customer base through their continued support of our business.
