Well we survived our week at Glastonbury. The sunbeams were beautiful & our little mobile Bee Shack Cafe offered shaded sanctuary for weary revellers. We ran low on stocks of iced fruit cordial- we just managed to eke out stocks til Sunday. Popular cakes were Almond Moon, Amondi & the Honeyed Apple Cookies. Sadly the Brownies & Triple Chocolate Tinkers resembled chocolate soup quite quickly!
The Bee Shack Cafe, Glastonbury Festival
It was lovely to see so many regulars- our offer of squidgy cushions, proper china mugs, tea & cake does seem to hit the spot – it truly is a luxury just to be able to have a nice sit down-..it’s amazing how tired you get just mooching around the festival site.
The food this year was awesome. We sampled fare from the Halls Dorset Smokery, The Dorset Blue Soup Company & Queen Deliah’s super salad mixes. The Goan Fish Curry Company is still my fave though- the Fish Caldine- all delicate lime/coriander & coconut milk with what looked like pollock or whiting was just scrum-a-dum. We ran out of time to sample a cream tea from the Cream tea shed but the chocolate cake from the Hurly Burly Cafe was divine.
It’s such a novelty not to be hosing down the infamous mud from all of our kit. True- the chairs/tables etc are looking a little dusty but we’ll get them all spruced back up ready for the Bee Shack Cafe Saturday this weekend. Do come by for tea, Honeybuns cakes and/or luncheon- we’d love to see you. We’ll have some Glastonbury pics on display too.
The garden is looking wonderful- just outside our office window we can see amazing roses, lavender & foxgloves & the view across the nature reserve field is idyllic- all the grass seed heads are waving in the breeze-.making concentrating on the old computer screen a tad difficult! The honey bees are enjoying all the buddleia, lavender & other friendly plants around the site.
Thank you for everyone’s patience regarding our little savoury tarts too- they’re now finally online www.honeybuns.co.uk/shop. We have more items to follow & the website will be revamped for next year. We’re aware that the shop section is a bit ‘clunky’ but all will be revamped for your shopping pleasure for 2011!
Vicky is now sending out a monthly brand new email version of our Bee Newsletter- this is far more eco friendly than printing them & we can also update more regularly. If you’d like to subscribe please head for www.honeybuns.co.uk/thebee
Hope to see you at the Bee Shack this Saturday,
