One of the ways that Aunt Bea’s Apiary supports itself is through product sales. We offer honey, soap, lip balm, salve, bee on a bike t-shirts, beeswax candles, and more. Money from product sales helps us maintain the apiary and educational outreach program.
I typically store extra honey and soap that is saponifying in a large pantry off my dining room. Recently, I decided to give the pantry an update. We have an old barn that is collapsing and we’ve been trying to repurpose as much of the wood as possible. You may have read my blog post about our educational center and noticed the awesome reclaimed wood ceiling. For this project, we salvaged some more of the barn wood for shelving in the pantry.
It turned out so great, that I ended up taking the door off the pantry to showcase the spectacular barn wood shelves and other home made goods including my soap, honey, canned tomatoes, jellies, etc..
Here are a couple of before and after photos! Thanks for taking the time to visit our blog and read about some of the things happening at Aunt Bea’s Apiary!
