Susan Chan: role of terroir

Susan Chan, author of “A Landowners Guide to  Conserving Native Pollinators in Ontario”, spoke to Harvest County beekeepers about the significance of terroir (or the land ) in determining flavour of different honeys. She is keen to develop a language to describe the different flavours of honey. Honey, like fine wine, is a product of the land. Roger and Valerie Kelly of Kellys’ Berries organized the event held in Bancroft in early March. They provided an excellent lunch.
This is a recording of her hour-long talk. After the talk we all sampled a number of different honeys and were surprised by the great variety of flavours. 
The Hastings Federation of Women’s Institutes and the Hastings Cattlemen have invited Susan Chan to talk at the Ivanhoe Veteran Hall in October 10.
