HONEY FOR SALE!
We now have honey for sale at Roots, our garden and gift shop!
This is fresh from Aldridge Gardens' honey wildflower meadow. It's our first crop and is amazing! It's clear, not too strong, and very good.
Our honey is available in 4 ounce bottles for $8, and 8 ounce bottles for $10.
Roots is open Monday through Friday 10:00 - 3:00, and select weekend hours.
Stop in and see us!
