Our Sourwood Honey is a
Good Food Awards Finalist!!!
We are excited to announce that our Sourwood Honey (under our former brand: Organic Mountains) is a finalist for the Good Food Awards (see their website). We just received a notification letter, and we thought we’d share that with you:
“We are thrilled to inform you that you have been named a 2016 Good Food Awards Finalist. Congratulations, your Sourwood Honey met all the responsible production criteria in addition to being a top scorer at the Blind Tasting amongst a pool of nearly 2,000 entries.”
What’s the Good Food Awards?
The Good Food Awards…
are proudly supported by the Good Food Retailers Collaborative, the Presenting Sponsor for two years running. Composed of 13 of the country’s top independently owned retailers from Chicago to Oakland to Ann Arbor, they are committed to supporting America’s great food producers in their own communities and across the country. Joining them is a vibrant group of key supporters, including six-time Premier Sponsors Williams-Sonoma and Bi-Rite Market; and Lead Sponsors Dominic Phillips Event Marketing, Impact HUB Bay Area, Veritable Vegetable, BCV Architects and Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture.
Is This Just Another Taste Award?
No, it’s not. In fact in the Good Food Awards’ press release, they say:
Beyond distinguishing themselves by receiving top scores from the 215 judges, all finalists passed a rigorous vetting to confirm they met specific Good Food Awards standards around environmentally sound agriculture practices, good animal husbandry, transparency, and responsible relationships throughout the supply chain.
Gratitude to Our Family Beekeepers
We are so very grateful to the family beekeepers who have gone before us, that brought raw, wild-crafted honey to the people of North Georgia.
