FAIRFIELD, Conn. -- The Fairfield Museum Shop is selling jars of the raw honey that was produced by the bees at the Ogden House, a 1750 farmhouse that provides a glimpse into the life of a middle-class Colonial family.
Whitney Voss, who headed up the endeavor by the Fairfield Garden Club, said, “It was a sticky task, but we got it done.”
To learn more about how the honey is made, stop by the Ogden House on Honey Day, Sunday, Sept. 25, from 1-4 p.m. Visitors can learn about honeybees, enjoy sun, tea and refreshments, and get a tour of the Ogden House Colonial Kitchen Garden, an 18th-century-style kitchen garden that was planned, planted and maintained by the Fairfield Garden Club.
Honey Day also features family-friendly crafts and tours of the historic saltbox home led by museum docents. Honey Day is free for members of the Fairfield Museum. For nonmembers the cost is $5 for adults, $3 for students and seniors, free for children 5 and younger.
Ogden House is at 1520 Bronson Road, Fairfield.
The jars of Ogden House Honey are only available while the extremely limited supplies last. The bees have done their job and won’t make a new batch until next year. Stop by for a jar at the Fairfield Museum, 370 Beach Road, during museum hours.
The museum is open seven days a week from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults; $3 for students and seniors. Members of the museum and children younger than 5 are admitted free.
