Farmer’s Market Tips From Farmers

Paula Morton represents, her father, Ed Johnson’s Honey Farm which is located in Goodlettsville, Tennessee. Like Jenny, she has been selling at the market for 10 years and also sells at two other markets in the area over the summer.

Honey bees have been raised on her family’s farm since 1918, making Paula a 3rd generation beekeeper. To say that she’s passionate about honey would be an understatement. Johnson’s honey comes out of a certified bee house which is thoroughly inspected on a yearly basis. You can rest assured that you are receiving the purest honey possible when purchasing from the Johnsons. Paula sells different varieties of honey at the farmer’s market. Wildflower, a honey with a taste that is less sweet than supermarket honey, is everyone’s favorite. In addition to honey, she also sells beeswax, bee pollen and honey sticks. Her advice to farmer’s market newcomers is simple:

“You have to know how to work. If you’re not prepared to get out of bed in the mornings, then you can’t be your own boss.”
