Know Your Farmers: Cutting Farm, West Springfield

Spending time listening to this couple tell of the wonders of the honey bee is fascinating, all right, but beware. The tale they weave is compelling, so much so you may catch the passion and the urge to become a beekeeper yourself. More, once you grasp the partnerships in a hive, chances are not remote you’ll actually gain considerable insight into the complexities of human community living.

From Farm to Kitchen: Honey Apple Bran Muffins
Split muffins, spread them with butter, and broil just until cut side is slightly crispy (about two minutes) for a breakfast treat. Or, use the crumbs as a filling for baked apples and top with a bit of brown sugar or New Hampshire maple syrup before baking.
